good read - alice in wonderland

I have yet to share this classic Lewis Carroll story with Bear and Chicha. Though I definitely will, I thought I would wait it out until they're older, as it can be disturbing to younger kids.

Alice in Wonderland

But now, I may just read it to them before this comes out in 2010. Feast your eyes on Tim Burton's next movie....

Thanks to Ira for the heads up!

I think Burton did great work with Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Ed Wood and James and the Giant Peach. I wasn't too happy though about his stab at Batman and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

While he may have come short for Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka (just my opinion), I have a feeling he's the man to make a Lewis Caroll book come to life.

Besides, Johnny Depp is the Mad frikkin' Hatter. Anne Hathaway is the White Queen. Red Queen is Helena Bonham Carter... of course. Looking forward to this.

Now, if this becomes a hit that calls for the sequel... imagine the craziness Burton could come up with doing Through the Looking Glass!

Hmmm.. Alice in Wonderland has always scared me!(The Disney movie, I mean. I never had the book)
But I have to admit the trailer looks good! Maybe I should give it a second chance?!

Hi Cely : ) It used to scare me too! I'd be having like... an anxiety attack on behalf of Alice half the time. She was on the brink of having her head cut off!

Then when I got older I actually loved it. I think Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter might scare some kids just by the trailer...
