I am so excited to see the new Alice movie! I think I want to see it in 3D, not sure yet. Maybe I’ll see it regular first, then in 3D.
I’ve loved the story of Alice in Wonderland since I was maybe 5 years old. My mom wanted me to like Wizard of Oz because she thought the Alice story was too weird. I couldn’t get into Wizard, too boring, but Alice! The story was filled with twists and made up words and Alice always took it in stride. Sure, she got a little confused and flustered at times, but who wouldn’t? You’re watching a baby turn into a pig then back into a baby again while it’s caretakers are destroying their house!
I was curious (haha! curious) to see how this new Alice was going to play out. I knew Tim Burton would try to do the original story justice, so many haven’t. Then when I found out it was a continuation of the story line, I was like, ah! Genius! Now he can do his own take on Alice. The original story is insanely complex and many directors, writers leave out the good stuff because they need to make it a short piece for the screen and/or they just don’t see the importance of all the little details. And that’s where I get annoyed. That’s where all the good stuff is in the story!
I’m excited to see Tim’s version of Alice. It’s gonna rock. Here’s 51 pictures from the film for you to enjoy:
