Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: First Look Photos
Head of the Household
"Miss Peregrine [Eva Green] takes aim at a Hollow that threatens the time loop where a group of children with peculiar abilities are under her care. Miss Peregrine is like a scary Mary Poppins—she is an Ymbryne, a peculiar who can manipulate the time in which children can live in relative safety from the world and their enemies."
"Olive [Lauren McCrostie, second from left] has hands that wield fire, so she keeps them sheathed in protective gloves. Bronwyn [Pixie Davies, third from left] possesses immense strength despite her small frame. Millard [Cameron King] is visible only with the help of his clothing. The twins [Joseph and Thomas Odwell] keep their faces hidden to spare those around them." (Also pictured: Raffiella Chapman, Georgia Pemberton, Milo Parker, and Hayden Keeler-Stone)
The Big Bad
"Barron [Samuel L. Jackson] smiles after trapping Miss Peregrine's bird self in a cage. He is a scientist on a mission to save himself and his friends with the unwilling help of any Ymbryne he can capture. His not-quite-human features are the remnants of a previous experiment gone wrong."
Lighter Than Air
"Emma [Ella Purnell] floats above the ground when her lead shoes are removed. Her peculiarity also allows her to manipulate large quantities of air, which she uses to help those around her. She is one of the older children in Miss Peregrine's home and sees the younger ones as her responsibility. Her quiet strength in this photo is obvious."
A Bonnet of Bees
"Hugh [Milo Parker] is a peculiar whose stomach is home to a swarm of bees. The photo was taken in front of the filming location of Torenhof, the castle in Belgium that stands in for the children's home. The image is part of a portrait series of each of the peculiar children that pays homage to the vintage photos in the original novel by Ransom Riggs."
