The Where the Wild Things' trailer may have been declawed, but according to original author Maurice Sendak, the movie still has bite. In a new featurette, Sendak calls Spike Jonze's adaptation "dangerous," and promises it will stir controversy.

This featurette was screened with clips from the movie at the Comic Con Warner Bros. panel Friday morning. Here, we not only get Sendak's words on the film, but also brief snippets of the movie and footage from Jonze's set, including his fiery propane tank. The film visuals are incredibly lovely, but even the set footage looks somehow magical and it looks like that dreamy on-set fun is what really drives the movie.
