Alice in Burtonland


Images and visions are beginning to leak out about a film I am already looking forward to, even though we won’t see it released until March of 2010. namely, Alice in Wonderland as envisioned and directed by Tim Burton.

Burton is back working with Disney for this production, but his trippy, crunchy dark subversiveness is already on display in the character images and designs that have been finding their way onto the web. If you thought the Dahl purists kicked when he made Willy Wonka, just wait until the Alice fanatics get a hold of this.

Look for some incredible concepts after the jump.

The following four images are concept art, showing the actors who will be appearing in theoretical costumes and attitudes a’la Tim. This looks like it is going to be a wild trip to Wonderland indeed.

The following images originally appeared in Wired.

First, Alice herself played by Mia Wasikowska.


The White Queen by Anne Hathaway


Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs. Burton) as the Queen of Hearts.


and of course….Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter.
