Tim Burton's 3D Alice in Wonderland Extravaganza!

Alice-topper Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland - the two are a match made in heaven, or possibly hell, but either way this was a movie that was destined to be.

When I first heard that Burton was directing a version of the Lewis Carroll acid trip novel (oddly while playing Trivial Pursuit on my iPhone, the question came up about who would was slated to play the Red Queen in Tim Burton's upcoming film "Alice in Wonderland". Obviously I guessed Helena Bonham Carter because 1) She is his girlfriend, 2) she is in all of his movies and 3) she is perfect for this role.) I rejoiced. I knew that this film was going to be a visual masterpiece.

Then I tried to figure out who Johnny Depp was going to be. I gave myself three guesses but really we all only need one.

It gets even better. Lister to this cast: Alan Rickman as The Caterpillar, Christopher Lee as The Jabberwock, Crispin lover as the Knave of Hearts, Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit... if it weren't for my concerns about Anne Hathaway being cast as the The White Queen I would be pooping my pants right now.

But check out this Red Queen.

It turns out that the film won't be a straight remake. It is a story about Alice (Mia Wosikowska) returning to Wonderland as a teenager.

They completed filming in only 40 days but a lot of the work is still to be done. Tim Burton told D23 "It's kind of a mixture of some distorted live action and animation. I can't relate it to anything because I'm not sure what to relate it to. It's kind of new territory for me."

Saying that I am excited for Alice in Wonderland might be the understatement of the year.

There are only two problems that I can forsee with this movie. First, we have to wait until March 2010 for the release and that seems like forever and second, the nightmares.

*SWOON* for Tim Burton movies, period. Secondly, *SWOON!!* for Alice & Wonderland. By far my most favorite Disney movie ever.

March 2010 does seem far away, but then again, that's my birthday month. Even more exciting. I'm so going to this for my birthday. Hell yes.

So excited too! Though those last two pictures? You're bang on about the nightmares. *shudder*

Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite books as a kid and having Tim Burton and Johnny Depp et. al do their version? I'm fangirling and swooning all over myself. March 2010 is so far away!
