The second official trailer for Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are has been released by Yahoo! Movies.
The trailer consists of a lot of the stuff that we saw in the first trailer, but this time there’s a bunch of dialogue included. This is particularly amazing to see when it comes to the Wild Things. We finally get to see these amazing creations interacting with young Max (Max Records) and you can see why so much work went into combining the physical costumes with the computer animated facial features and expressions. Spike Jonze has created real living, breathing creatures here, and this trailer takes that magic to a whole new level. I imagine this is a shorter peek at what the people who went to Comic Con were shown (Read: SDCC 09: “˜Where The Wild Things Are’ Panel).

Where the Wild Things Are is based of the short book of the same name written by Maurice Sendak. It follows a boy named Max, who, after causing some trouble at home, is punished and sent to his room by his mother. While there, an amazing world grows out of his room, and before he knows it, he’s surrounded by a bunch of creatures called the Wild Things, who make him their king.
