Storyline

Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. Written by Lionsgate

Trivia

Most audiences don't realize that every inch of Jacob Tremblay, from head to shoulders, was covered in silicone prosthetics, including dental prosthetics, contact lenses, and a wig to complete the look. Arjen Tuiten and the team also had to ensure everything was flexible, to contend with the reality that Jacob was still a growing boy. "What an amazing actor. The other kids are great too, but Jacob is something special," said Tuiten. "Even if he never does prosthetic makeup again, this character will have a special place in his heart. He'll go on to be famous and handsome and you know, all those things, but 'Auggie' will forever be immortalized on the screen. He'll outlive us all." See more »
