Whether or not you’re already a fan of Ransom Riggs‘ best selling trilogy, you’re likely to find some magic in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the latest feature film from director Tim Burton. Eva Green, who previously worked with Tim Burton on Dark Shadows, plays the title role as the headmistress of a school for “peculiars”: those born with extraordinary abilities. Whether the children are invisible, lighter than air, or even filled with bees, the class at Miss Peregrine’s are kept protected from the rest of the world through a special “loop” in time. It is when the loop becomes broken, however, than one young boy, Jake (Asa Butterfield), must find a way to protect the Peculiar children and, in doing so, perhaps discover his own peculiarity.

ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to sit down with Tim Burton and stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell to get an early look at the fantastic world of Miss Peregrine’s. In the player below, you can check out our video interviews wherein Tim Burton talks about some of the thematic ties between Miss Peregrine’s and his previous films and working closely with Ransom Riggs to bring the author’s peculiar world to life.

Tim Burton is a filmmaker who always seemed drawn towards the peculiar. So his latest movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, strikes us as an ideal fit. Based on the book by Ransom Riggs, it’s a typically Burtonesque tale of fantasy and intrigue, detailing a magical orphanage populated with mysterious children and shape-shifting protectors. Empire has an exclusive first look at the film.

Eva Green, reteaming with Burton following their last collaboration on Dark Shadows, playing the title role of Miss Peregrine. Speaking exclusively to Empire, Burton describes Miss Peregrine as a “weird Mary Poppins like character—a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.”

This is a film dominated by fierce, powerful women – including Dame Judi Dench as Miss Avocet. “In the peculiar world, women are the protectors,” Burton explains. “Miss Avocet is the head of another peculiar school. But, much like the bird in her name, she’s a bit more of a nervous, flighty energy than Miss Peregrine.”

Here’s the full lineup of peculiar children, each endowed with unusual skills or powers. “I was a little worried about working with so many kids again,” Burton told us, “but they were all such professionals on set. You would never believe that it was some of these kids’ first big film.”

In a typically starry cast, Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell lead up the child actors, while Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, and Samuel L. Jackson join Green and Dench. Burton is directing from a script by Jane Goldman, adapted from Riggs’ novel.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children flies into US cinemas on September 30, ahead of a UK release on October 7. Be sure to pick up a copy of next month’s Empire (on sale March 31) for more exclusive tidbits.

“From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale. Sixteen-year-old Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.”

This is the second collaboration between actress Eva Green and Director Tim Burton. The first one was in 2012’s adaptation of ‘Dark Shadows’. The book has a very gothic feel to it, so this movie is surely a perfect match for Tim Burton. All Tim Burton fans are really excited about it.
