More than 100 years ago in England, the first film adaptation of Alice in Wonderland was made.
Voila, painstakingly restored. Isn’t it quite something? 100 years ago!
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.

My Stalker Tendencies are making a re-appearance. I may be a tad bit late on getting obsessed with The Cherry Blossom Girl, but better late than never!
There’s a certain je nai sais quoi about her! I love the fact that while she loves her Black, she unabashedly mixes wonderful colours (pastels and vibrant ones alike) into her lovely lovely ensembles! The way she embraces Colours actually works out great for adding variation into her outfits and style. I’m all for having a certain Style, like how you can always count on Kate Lanphear to be put together in black, with her kickass bangles piled on.
But as The Cherry Blossom Girl proves, there’s Style aplenty in loving and wearing everything!
Why can’t we be Rock Stars today and Fairy Tale Princesses tomorrow?
This, and my recent obsession with Fairy Tales, have spurred me to now want-to-dress-like-Alice in Wonderland!!
