Alice in Wonderland


So, I am sure those among my readers who subscribe to multiple blogs are well aware of Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie, to be released in March 2010. Character photographs and set concept art for the movie were released several weeks ago. I love the photos, but I am not going to post them again here when they are all over the internet already. Instead, I wanted to focus on a few details about the movie that you might not have noticed yet:
  • The movie is 3-D
  • Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is more of a sequel to the original Alice in Wonderland
  • Alice is 17 and on the verge of becoming engaged when she runs away to Wonderland
  • Alice doesn't necessarily remember her first trip to Wonderland
  • "The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power" (not sure how I feel about that, I tend to shy away from any use of the words girl power)
  • Alan Rickman plays The Caterpillar (I love Alan Rickman)
  • "So, it’s a mixture. The movie is a mixture of live action, animation, and stop motion, so it’s very complicated and I don’t think all three have been put together ever before,” reveals Rickman. “So I’ll be with a live action Alice. I will be a construct.”-Alan Rickman
  • Creatures of Wonderland are ready to revolt and are hoping/waiting for Alice to help them

Here are some additional links:
I expect that Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland will be hugely influential in the fashion and design communities and I look forward to see the movie and the art that it inspires.

EVERYONE has been posting bits and bobs about this movie. As the Disney Alice and the tv miniseries from the 80s are two of my favourite movies... I am hooked. Can't wait for it. Thanks for sharing!
