In March, Disney will be releasing Time Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland. This film will put a new twist on the classic tale, just as it did with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Wonderland will be much more surreal, more dangerous, yet more mystical. I think this is a great vision for the story. Alice in Wonderland is very much about a girl who is in a crazy, confusing, and threatening world. I have to admit, though, as a child I was quite frightened even of the Disney classic animated movie, so I do worry that Burton's film will be a bit too far on the scary end of the spectrum. But the images I've seen so far will drive me to the cinema anyway--they're very creative and beautiful, if not a bit too dark. I really can't wait to see what this will be like.
