Gah! The Trailer For Judy Blume’s “Tiger Eyes” Has Arrived!

Davey + Wolf 4 Ever!

Judy Blume’s “Tiger Eyes” is one of those young adult novels I read multiple times as a teen, so I was beyond excited when I found out they were making it into a movie. And now there’s a trailer! Willa Holland stars as Davey, a 15-year-old girl who relocates with her family  to New Mexico from New Jersey after her father is killed. Hiking in a canyon, she meets a mysterious young man named Wolf — played by Tatanka Means — and the two become fast friends (there are romantic sparks too). The story follows Davey as she struggles to come to terms with her father’s death while also progressing into womanhood. From the looks of the trailer, the movie looks so much like I imagined it would, probably because Blume and her son were closely involved in making the film. The movie opens June 7 — cannot wait.

Finally, finally, one of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a movie … and we might just be a wee excited about that. Tiger Eyes, one of her more grown-up YA books, is about a 15-year-old girl named Davey whose mom uproots the family to move in with relatives in New Mexico after their dad is shot during a hold-up. Davey has to come to terms with her grief, accept her mother’s new boyfriend into her life, and see if she can grow close to Wolf, a friend in her new town who’s the only person who seems to understand her. “Tiger Eyes” the movie will star Willa Holland from “Gossip Girl” and Amy Jo Johnson from “Felicity”; the script was written by Judy Blume and her son, Lawrence Blume.  It’s coming out later this year. 

Seriously, how is it possible this is the first time any of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a film but there have been 17 “American Pie” movies? [Entertainment Weekly]
