What the trailer tells us
It looks like a fun adventure film. It gives the feeling of a never ending journey and shows the innocence of a child. That’s until it turns slightly dark. The darkness is not too overpowering because it is mixed with humour as well. The secret that lies in that boat is still a mystery after it ends and you get the sense the children will be part of an adventure that provides danger and courage.
Whatever the danger is I am sure it will not be too harmful but you can expect moments of tension and drama.
The music is quite jolly and it constantly moves in a hurried way right until the end. It manages to go low key when it gets dark so it will be interesting to see if there is a decent soundtrack behind this. Anyway, let’s hope that the adventure in this trailer is just as much fun in the film and as good as the book.
