The New Alice in Wonderland: Exciting News for Tim Burton Fans

Newly released images of an upcoming Tim Burton production (due out in 2010) of “Alice in Wonderland” offer an alluring peek through the looking glass. Pulling in such exciting and diverse talents as Johnny Depp (seemingly one of Burton’s favorites for his ability to carry through extreme personas), Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway. The stunning images show these classic characters recreated as envisioned by Tim Burton… though such lively and dramatic visual interpretations of characters is nothing new for the director/producer, as exhibited in some of his past works like Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Beetlejuice, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Extreme colors and rich details in costume and makeup portrayed in the composition of the images prove that this Wonderland could be more realistic… and in that, could this possibly be more nightmarish, than the illustrations or animations before it?

“Alice in Wonderland” has always been a bizarre story in a bizarre world on it’s own, and coming from the head of Tim Burton, it’s difficult to know anymore what exactly to expect. All I can say is any Tim Burton fan would be almost maniacally eager at this point about the film.
