Tim Burton isn’t known for having a bright and cheery demeanor, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t sit down and talk about his upcoming remake of the Disney classic Alice in Wonderland. Unfortunately, as much as we tried, we couldn’t get him to remove his shades, but that didn’t stop him from conveying his vision to us.
Burton really tried to establish that this is not going to be a direct live action version of the original cartoon. He stressed that he’s looking to delve deeper in to the intricacies of the story, and explore some things that may have not been addressed in the cartoon. We also found out that the relationship between Alice and the Mad Hatter is going to be a little more deep, but not romantic as some rumors have been saying. In Burton’s words “She’s just a little girl!”
The style is certainly going to be Burton, anyone who has seen the posters can tell you that, but he did express some concern over the green screen. Burton expressed that he really likes to let the actors be actors and leave the computer-generated stuff for other parts of the movie. He did share that he’s looking forward to showing the movie in 3D, and he really thinks it will help immerse the audience in the story.
He was careful to not really add much more to the plate of what we know about this movie, but we were treated to a spectacular teaser trailer, which you can check out below:
I’m sure that as the release date approaches more footage will be shown, and help audiences get a feel for what to expect. Alice in Wonderland hits theaters nationwide on March 5th, 2010. Stick with Mania.com for any more news about the movie.
