Five Children and It is a 2004 theatrical feature, adapted from a popular British children's novel. The story focuses on five children, sent to stay with their eccentric Uncle Albert by the seaside, while their father fights during World War II. They soon discover a cranky sand fairy, or Psammead, called It. Jim Henson's Creature Shop created It, as both an animatronic puppet and a CG digital character.
