Gorgeous New Alice in Wonderland Photos and Concept Art
Disney is ramping up their final big marketing push for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, due out on March 5th, and has been releasing numerous video featurettes and photo series that show the progression from green screen to finished CGI. Anyway, over on Animatie (via SlashFilm), they've debuted a big batch of concept art and new photos for the film that are too beautiful to pass up. At this point I'm looking forward to finally seeing movie, but these are a great last minute reminder that it's coming up very soon. My favorite two photos I've put at the end, too, the one with the Caterpillar and the one with the Cheshire Cat. Enjoy!
Alice in Wonderland is directed by visionary filmmaker Tim Burton, of everything from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure to Beetlejuice to Batman to Edward Scissorhands to Mars Attacks to Sleepy Hollow to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Sweeney Todd most recently. The screenplay was written by Disney's own Linda Woolverton, of Beauty and the Beast, Homeward Bound, and The Lion King previously. This is based on Lewis Carroll's beloved series of books that were first published in 1865. Disney is bringing Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland to both digital 3D and 2D theaters, as well as IMAX, starting on March 5th this year.

I think it's so fasinating that Burton goes from mature and gloomy/gore to child-friendly and colorful/light-hearted with the snap of his fingers. He obviously has had a lot on his mind-- he's wanted to do all these adaptation projects for years and god damn I personally think he does good work, being that he has his very own style of filmmaking and takes no shit from TB-haters. Go ahead, Tim. We're all going to see your movies anyways.

I can describe Tim Burton's vision as the Dark comedy with million colors !!!! Who I don't like !!! But I can say Sleepy Hollow (1999) was one of the best Art direction ever in his movies.

The Concept Art for the cheshire cat and the old Guy as the slug looks great, I also like the mad hatter one with Johnny Depp.

Tim Burton can do no wrong.

You only need three things in a movie title now to make millions. Tim Bruton, Johnny Depp, and 3-D. I bet this movie will suck and everyone will still like it. I don't like when they create movies for actors and not for the story. It really shows how the biz works now. Avatar was a cool movie. But know that it made so much money every freaking movie now has to be 3-D. You will have to take out a loan to see movies soon.

I'm with 600RR I love Depp and Burton and I'm anxious to see what Ann Hathaway can do but I'm getting a vibe telling that this film is only cashing in on gimmicky 3-D and the story will fall flat...I hope I'm wrong, I love Alice in Wonderland!

I never like the original story of Alice in Wonderland, and I don't know what to think of Alice's return to it in this movie, but the Cheshire kitty is just fucking adorable! Especially in the last picture. *snuggles*

Anyone else think the first drawing looks like Quentin Tarrantino with an eye patch?

A Tim Burton movie with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter?!? Get out of town! It's never been done before!

The only knock on Burton is he doesnt do anything original, but he sure does put his spin on everything. Been a fan of his movies for over 20 years now, and the only ones I havent really cared for much is Mars Attacks and Big Fish. Cant wait for him to start on Dark Shadows.

The thing about Tim Burton movies are that it's all about art direction rather than acting or writing. If this movie does win an oscar next year mark my word it's strongest category is Art Direction. Several things it has in it's favour for that category. 1. Historical Setting (most of the previous winners were the movies set most in the past). In the case of Wonderland it is got a Victorian/Gothic feel to it. 2. Every Tim Burton movie that was nominated, have won (Batman, Sleepy Hollow and Sweeney Todd).
