The New Alice in Wonderland

December 3, 2009

If you grew up in this generation you have most likely heard of or are familiar with the story of Alice in Wonderland. I know I watched it a lot when I was young and it was one of my favorite movies. Disney’s production of Alice in Wonderland was released in 1951. The movie is a cartoon and obviously not as good as the graphics would be today. Although, it is still a really good movie. When I was a little older, my mom found a different version of Alice in Wonderland. I believe this version was released in 1999.* It has a familiar cast and is not a cartoon, real people are acting it out. It was a little bit different from Disney’s version, but I liked it more because it was not as baby-ish because it was not a cartoon and it attracted an older audience.

Now as I am seeing the commercials for the new production of Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton I am really excited. One, because we have just finished it and did this whole project on it. So now when I go see this new movie in the spring I will be looking out for more things that have been added. Maybe I will be able to analyze a little more, or notice something I have missed. Two, because I first saw the cartoon when I was little, which fit because it is for little kids. Then I watched the other version which was good because it fit my age. And now this movie because if you have ever seen a Tim Burton film, then you know he has a different way than anyone else. This is really cool if you think about it because Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a really unique children’s story, and Tim Burton is really unique. I think it is a perfect fit.

* There was a 3-hour television special made in 1999 of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. For more information, you can visit the Internet Movie Database entry, located here.
