Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” – New Photos

I have been keeping up with the production of this film since it was first announced and I am so very excited.  Here are some recent articles that talk about some new photos that have been released that give us a taste of what it’s going to be like and I am personally thrilled and can’t wait for the release of this film which is said to be in March of next year.  It’s going to be amazing!!  Now if they can just do this with L. Frank’s Baum’s “OZ” I will be a happy camper!!

Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’: First-look photos are pretty darn stunning

by Kerrie Mitchell, Entertainment Weekley

6a00d8341bf6c153ef0115704b973d970c-piThe first photos from director Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland are online, and man, are they stunning. In addition to portraits of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham-Carter as the Red Queen (pictured), USA Today has some panoramic concept art from the film which will combine live-action and stop-motion and CG animation, and eventually be transferred to 3-D. (It’s set to premiere March 5 next year.) What do you think — is it living up to your expectations? Or does it remind you a bit too much of Burton’s candy-colored wonderland from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

First look: What a weird ‘Wonderland’ Burton’s made

By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY

Those who have grown curiouser and curiouser about what the offbeat reinventor of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory might conjure up in his version of Alice in Wonderland can feast their eyes on this array of concept art and publicity images, due to hang in movie theaters this week to promote the March 5, 2010, release.

“It has been Burton-ized” is how producer Richard Zanuck describes the director’s vision of the Lewis Carroll classic. Many elements are familiar, from the enigmatic Caterpillar (Alan Rickman) to the fierce Jabberwock (Christopher Lee). But none has been presented in this sort of visually surreal fashion.

“We finished shooting in December after only 40 days,” Zanuck says. Now the live action is being merged with CG animation and motion-capture creatures, and then transferred into 3-D.

The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast). Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn’t remember.

Among those who welcome her back is the Mad Hatter, a part tailor-made for Johnny Depp as he collaborates with Burton for the seventh time. “This character is off his rocker,” Zanuck says.

Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, 19, best known for HBO’s In Treatment, has the coveted title role. “There is something real, honest and sincere about her,” Zanuck says. “She’s not a typical Hollywood starlet.”

There is the usual Burton-esque ghoulishness (Helena Bonham Carter’s Red Queen, whose favorite retort is “Off with their heads,” has a moat filled with bobbing noggins), but Zanuck assures most kids can handle it. “The book itself is pretty dark,” he notes. “This is for little people and people who read it when they were little 50 years ago.”
