Below is a cleaner updated version of the image we provided in a previous post about Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. Enjoy!
Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and based on the Lewis Carroll novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The film will use a technique combining live action, motion capture technology and stop motion. Mia Wasikowska will portray Alice and the film is due for release on March 19, 2010.
As reported in the March 2009 edition of D23 magazine, the movie will incorporate many characters and narrative elements from Carroll’s books but is essentially a new story, Alice’s return to Wonderland. Tim Burton states that “given what this story is, if Alice had this adventure as a little girl and now she’s going back all these years later, it’s a bit overgrown…[and there’s] a slightly haunted quality to Wonderland, even though it’s got strong elements of color.” She is now 17 years old and someone “who doesn’t quite fit into Victorian society and structure.” This journey “becomes a rite of passage as she discovers her voice and herself.”
