Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland is the seventh collaboration between Burton and Depp, following on from Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and 2007’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
It will also mark his sixth collaboration with partner Helena Bonham Carter following the poorly received Planet of the Apes remake, Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd
Burton’s version will be a sort-of sequel in which a 17-year-old Alice returns to Wonderland, allowing for a darker, more adult-orientated vision that takes in characters and storylines from both Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Frankly, the sight of seven-time Burton collaborator Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, resembling a dayglo-version of Adam Ant in his heyday, with a bit of Ronald McDonald thrown in for good measure, looks enough to have most small children running screaming from the room in terror
Pretty excited about this. I’ve always loved the visuals of Alice in Wonderland. Although I wonder, don’t they get sick of working with each other? Maybe that doesn’t happen in a perfect partnership.
