PREVIEW: The Grinch

Ready or not, the 2018 adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas is out now. The original storybook was published by Dr. Seuss in 1957. The book has since been adapted into various forms including theater and film. The first animated version came out in 1966, a musical version was produced in 1998, then in 2000, it was made into a live action film starring Jim Carrey. Now, the film company, Illumination, has made their own animated version called The Grinch.

From the trailer, the animation looks great. I like the cute, friendly depiction of Whoville. The music is composed by Danny Elfman, featuring Pentatonix, Run-DMC, Nat King Cole, Jackie Wilson, the Supremes, and Tyler, The Creator. I look forward to analyzing the differences between the new version with the old versions.
