The image, which surfaced on Twitter, appears to be a piece of concept art. It shows Darby Camp’s Emily Elizabeth standing on the front steps of what looks like a New York City brownstone. Smiling, she gazes up at Clifford, whose enormous head barely fits through the doorway. The piece’s artist has not yet been revealed.
Published in 1963, Clifford, the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell was the first in a series of more than 40 more books about Emily Elizabeth and her gigantic pet. The last one, Clifford Makes the Team, was released in 2011, three years before Bridwell’s death. More than 60 million Clifford books are in print worldwide. The 25-foot dog has also made the leap to video, animated television and video games, but this is the first time the character has appeared in live-action.
Directed by Walt Becker off a script by Ellen Rapoport and Justin Malen, Paramount’s live-action Clifford the Big Red Dog film stars Darby Camp as Emily Elizabeth and Jake Whitehall as Uncle Casey. John Cleese, Sienna Guillory, Kenan Thompson and Rosie Perez are also attached.
