*NEW PICS* The Benzini Brothers Circus comes to life!

BEYOND cool :)

The H2O Set Soldiers have done it again! Thanks to Teddi & Megan for your awesomeness 🙂 They were allowed to watch and take pictures of the Benzini Brothers Big Circus Sideshow coming to life. These pictures will make any ‘Water For Elephants’ lover squee.

LOVE the banners showcasing the sideshow performers...I see Lovely Lucinda!

We can assume the previous set pics were from the ghost circus like many of you noted when they came out. The tent was tattered and dirty. Nothing like the bright white of the Benzini Brothers Tent 🙂

Plus, Francis Lawrence tweeted on the 2nd day of filming when those first set pictures came out:

Just shot Rosies intro!

If you know the story, you know when this happens 😉

Teddi & Megan, also captured some zebras and llamas and horses! OH MY!

Check out #18 and the other WFE train cars choo chooing along the tracks after the jump!

More train pics in the gallery 🙂

Thanks again to the H2O set soldiers…you guys have rocked our socks 😉

    Excited to see the film, but tell me… the abuse to the animals is implied, right? I know it’s not REALLY happening, but I tend to get drawn into a good film…

  • Jane

    Where were these pics taken, Ca?

  • Mandy

    Wow those are so cool. My doubts about Hollywood making the book into a movie are slowly starting to fade away.

  • Kailene Kaina

    Wow! the Ringling train goes right through those hills in the back. I love all the animals dressed up and ready for the show. Thats exactly what I do for a living!

  • DJ

    The Circus is Coming. The Circus is Coming. OMG. Beautiful. It is surreal watching your book come to life, and meeting one’s expectations. Wonderful.

  • Fred Pfening Jr.

    A couple of historical booboos. A slogan, like The Greatest Show on Earth” was never painted on a flat car or stock or coach, only the show title. Also the flat cars were never lightly loaded, all wagons were tightly loaded to get as many as possible on a flat.
    The side show tent appears to be as large as the big top. The side show was always much smaller.

  • I have one question, where is this set located?
    Where are they shooting?

  • roberta

    Who cares.. this is not an historical novel……it was a book of fiction; hence movies too….
