Book Vs Movie
The Polar Express
The Margos take a wild ride into the classic 1985 children’s book and compare it to the 2004 Robert Zemeckis Film
It’s our last new episode of the year and we had to celebrate with one of our most requested titles ever–The Polar Express from author/illustrator Chris Van Allsburg.
The book sold millions of copies since its 1985 release (one million by 1989 alone!) and it’s only 32 pages so we only have a few wonderful things to say about it. But what about the 2004 film starring Mr. Tom Hanks? We have feelings about this movie kids–and we want to know what YOU think in the comments below.
So between book & movie–which did we like better? Have a listen to find out!
In this ep the Margos discuss:
- Chris Van Allsburg’s amazing career
- The basic differences between the book & movie
- The cast of the movie Tom Hanks ( Hero Boy, Father, Santa Claus, Conductor, and Hobo,) Leslie Zemeckis (Mother, Sister Sarah,) Eddie Deezan (Know-It-All,) Nona Gaye (Hero Girl,) Peter Scolari (Billy-Lonely Boy,) and Micheal Jeter (Smokey.)
- The Polar Express trailer
- “When Christmas Comes to Town” (Glen Ballard & Alan Silvestri)
- “Rocking on Top of the World” by Steven Tyler
- Outro music “Believe” by Josh Groban
