In Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, a Time Loop Is Trying to Kill a Baby Squirrel

In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the titular home is protected because it’s located in a time loop. A time loop that hates this baby squirrel and is trying to kill it.

In this clip from the movie—one of the first ones that is more forced cuteness rather than unintentionally terrifying—Emma (Ella Purnell) asks Jake’s help to save the squirrel. Which leaves me wondering if there’s a schedule for which of the peculiar kids has to go do this chore. Or is it only Emma because her weather abilities mean she floats?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children comes out September 30.
