Visiting the Set of Clifford The Big Red Dog Live Action Movie
I remember reading the Clifford books when I was little and always loved watching Clifford on PBS Kids with my own kids (as well as reading the books with them).
This is Emily Elizabeth and her mother’s apartment. It’s supposed to be a funky Harlem brownstone and I was just amazed by all the details taken for the sets. Every single detail, art, family photos, condiments(!), is on purpose.
Here’s the plot of the movie via The Hollywood Reporter:
“The movie will see Emily (Big Little Lies‘ Darby Camp), who is struggling to fit in at home and at school, discover a small red puppy who is destined to become her best friend. When Clifford magically undergoes one heck of a growth spurt and attracts the attention of a genetics company, Emily and her Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) have to fight the forces of greed as they go on the run across New York City. The script for Clifford was penned by the writing team Jay Scherick and David Ronn, along with Annie Mumolo and Stan Chervin.
