Ahh yes. Tim Burton is doing what he does best: bringing a touch of twisted darkness to the otherwise good and wholesome. The prospect of Burton taking on the classic tale of “Alice In Wonderland” has excited me from the first bit of news and now I’m even more anxious to see what this visionary director has in store for us. What has my interest jumping is this latest revelation that Burton’s take on “Alice” will be different:

”Everybody’s got an image of Wonderland, such as the Disney version which is bright and cartoony,” [Burton] continues. ”I think in people’s minds, it’s always a very bright place. I don’t know if that’s accurate or not, but we thought 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, the topiaries aren’t as nicely cut as they once were. There’s a slightly haunted quality to Wonderland, even though it’s got strong elements of color.”

This is going to be good. I really like the idea of Alice returning to Wonderland to find it dark and crumbling from what she had once remembered.
