Lois Lowry Appears in a Featurette Video For ‘The Giver’ Movie

A new featurette for The Giver movie adaptation has been unleashed.

Viewers will see Lois Lowry, the author behind this Newbery Medal-winning novel, talking about the questions she asked herself when she first conceived of the story. Besides Lowry’s appearance, the video embedded above also offers glimpses of Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges in the title role and Brenton Thwaites playing the lead protagonist Jonas.

Here’s more from BuzzFeed: “An initial trailer was released a few weeks ago and viewers have been disconcerted by the fact that the trailer was entirely in color rather than black and white as in the novel. However, much to the pleasure of viewers, some of this new footage depicts the utopian (dystopian?) world of The Giver as it is in the novel: colorless.”
