Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland: Drink Me! Eat Me! Watch Me in 3D!

Lewis Carroll wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for a kid. Now, Tim Burton has re-imagined the old-time favorite for adults and with a young adult, Mia Wasikowska (shown below at left with a bunny), in the leading role as Alice. Judging by the trailer, it's still the same old story with Alice falling into the rabbit hole and drinking and eating things that would make her grow or shrink in size. The difference is that this one's got a burtonesque twist in the depiction of characters and production design. Of course, it wouldn't be a Tim Burton film without Johnny Depp and dark, twisted characters. The Alice in Wonderland teaser trailer clearly shows Burton's distinct stamp.

The appeal of this new Alice in Wonderland is it's being done by creatively playful Tim Burton and there's a lot to expect from his distinctly creative mind. How Burton envisions Alice as a young adult acting innocently like the child as the character was originally intended to be is also something to see. And of course, there's the red-haired Mad Hatter that doesn't look a bit like Johnny Depp although we can appreciate how he still acts like Johnny Depp. We can see bits of Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, and other "Depped" characters in Burton's movies.

This new Alice in Wonderland, which Burton has described as "a bit of an experiment" will likely be a new collectible and something that's appealing to both young and old (at least Burton hopes so). It's being in 3D is an attraction that's hard not to let pass and it's a sure blockbuster in theaters and that's something predictable this early on.
