Sweet Treats: Alice in Wonderland

Young Alice is returning to Wonderland soon, under the direction of Tim Burton and we can't wait!

Plot:

Alice, now 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following the white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen overthrew her sister. The creatures of Wonderland, ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them.


Of course she'll
encounter the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen, and the other absurd and amazing characters from Lewis Carroll's books...and just like any other Tim Burton film, you'll find Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter.

Awesome. This is the first I've seen photos from it. Johnny Depp looks scary, just like he did in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but I'm still excited to see it. I love Tim Burton.

I'm so excited about this! Sounds like a combination of the classic Alice in Wonderland and the new series "The Looking Glass Wars".

I can't wait for that to come out, the costuming and make up looks like it'll really show Tim Burton's classic theme of making fantasy and reality blur.

BTW- I loved the Tom Petty "Don't Come Around Here no More"
