Spike Jonze has said that his adaptation of Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are scared studio executives rather than children.

The director had been convinced by Sendak to make a feature-length movie version of his 1963 children's adventure book after almost a decade of persuasion.

Jonze told Metro: "When we first screened the movie during editing, it wasn't the kids who were frightened, it was the studio executives.

"They presumed parents would not like it. But we did not make this movie for politically correct parents."

Jonze revealed that he cut one scene from the film and added two more, but added: "I did not compromise my movie. I worked on this thing for five years of my life. We have executed our original vision."

Where The Wild Things Are hits UK cinemas this Friday.
