The guys behind Where The Wild Things Are, including Spike Jones et al, have released what could be the cutest featurette of all time, telling the story of casting the sweetest child to ever muck about in a furry wolf suit.

Max Records (cool name, cool kid) fought off feirce competition to earn the right to jump about with a bunch of big woolly monsters, eventually charming his way into the part and wearing his crown with aplomb.

Besides Max, there's his even cheekier brother Sam, who's loud, excitable and adorable. Damn it, just watch the thing. You'll be eBaying "wolf romper suits" in minutes, we promise you.

Where The Wild Things Are is out in the UK on 11th December.
