The Wind in the Willows,” a new adaptation of the 1908 children’s classic, is scheduled to get underway this year, and there’s a new teaser that hints at the film’s tone and visual textures. The folks down at Weta in New Zealand are laboring on the movie (which is a mix of live-action and computer-generated animation), and there’s a nice winking moment in this trailer that acknowledges the inspiration of the visual effects house’s name (the weta is a large, prehistoric-looking grasshopper native to New Zealand). The film is due in 2012 and is being directed by Ray Griggs.
