Inside Suzy’s Favorite Stories

In Moonrise Kingdom, the new film from director Wes Anderson, 12-year-old Suzy runs away with boyfriend Sam. Among her over-packed luggage is a series of fictitious storybooks—three of which she reads throughout their adventures.

Now you can go inside those stories thanks to the director’s new animated short—a spoiler-free supplement to the film itself. Says Anderson, ““I wrote passages for the other books that didn’t have any text [read aloud in the film], and we animated that too.”

Watch the charming short, narrated by actor Bob Balaban, over at Entertainment Weekly. You can also check out our conversation with director Anderson here.
