We’ve gotten a look at director Tim Burton‘s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children with two trailers, and now we get to hear about the making of the film and see some new footage.

In the below clip Burton talks about his love for the original book, specifically how author Ransom Riggs made a story out of old photographs. He describes the world as “poetic and beautiful.”

He’s not the only one to chime in. We also hear from Riggs himself, as well as the film’s stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Samuel Jackson and Terence Stamp.

It’s a bit of a love fest: Burton talks about how great the story and author are, and the author and actors talk about how great Burton is. But it’s all very sweet, especially keeping in mind the story is about outsiders trying to find a place to fit in (no one is left out here):

If the story is new to you, here’s a brief description: Butterfield (Hugo, Ender’s Game) takes on the role of 16-year-old Jake Portman (Jacob in the novel). After his grandfather’s passing, Jake follows clues to find out more about his grandfather and what actually happened leading up to this death. The path takes him to the orphanage of Miss Peregrine (Green) in Wales, where his grandfather lived as a youth.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children hits U.S. theaters on September 30, 2016.
