Recently, 20th Century Fox have released exclusive clips of the film. One is of Liesel “borrowing” some books and the other a rather touching moment when Liesel’s foster father shows her a chalkboard ‘dictionary’ he had made for her. It also released featurettes giving us the behind-the-scenes knowledge about the casting of Sophie as Liesel and what made her so different from all of the people that auditioned for the role. We also get to see talks with director Brian Percival (Dowton Abbey) author Markus Zusak and cast members Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Ben Schnetzer, learning more about the film, how they planned it, where the idea for the book came from and the production process.
The Book Thief is penned for release on 26th February in the UK, and is set to be a heart-warming tale of a girl who finds utter solace in writing and in reading books.
Check out the clips below!
