It’s hard to believe, but it’s been nearly a year to the day that we have been able to share images from Walt Disney Studios’ film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green. With just a couple of weeks before the film opens on August 15, however, that’s all about to change as Walt Disney Studios has provided us with eight new stills and one behind-the-scenes photo.

Most of the new images appear to reflect on the relationship between Timothy (Cameron ‘CJ’ Adams as he is now billed) and his new parents, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) as well as Timothy’s extra special bond with Joni Jerome (Odeya Rush).
