Yes, the legendary Tim Burton has now been hired by Disney to make two new films, one a 3D animation version of Alice (going back to the origional book) and a new feature length version of his cult classic Frakenweenie (which will be a stop motion animation which will be given the lovely Disney 3D treatment).

I think this is the best news since I found out about Sweeny Todd. It sounds like Disney have woken up and have released that his quirky style sells seats at the cinema.

I've heard the news too! This could really be a marvelous combination!

Sounds good to me :)


I'm very much looking forward for the Alice movie. Tim Burton's movies are great and in combination with Disney, they're even better.
Oh Boy ! \":mickey2:\"


Waw, I love Burton!
These are great news to me!

:lol: This is bad news for me, as it'll mean I'll have TWO Disney versions of Cheshire Cat to love. :P Along with the classic book version, the American McGee's version and all the other random versions of Cheshire I've ever seen.

You are entitled to your own opinion Nicholas ;)
I can imagine that some people don't like his way of moviemaking. It's kinda different then most others and mostly a bit dark.

But what don't you like about his way???  :?:

I've commandeered this topic for mostly Alice in Wonderland now, which is sounding good from their casting so far.

Matt Lucas will play both Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. If you're not from the UK and don't know him, let me just say: PERFECT casting.

And of course, Johnny Depp will play the Mad Hatter.

And it'll be in 3D. And directed by Tim Burton. Phew.

I've got a feeling guests might soon be wondering why Alice's Curious Labyrinth and Mad Hatter's Tea Party don't/won't have any reference this film, the same way they do at Pirates.

The Butlin Boy

This sounds exceptionally good, I've got a very good feeling about this film. Do you think it'll be 3D everywhere (like for instance, Spy Kids 3 was) or just at selected cinemas (Imax)?


It'll probably be 'Disney Digital 3-D', so anywhere with a digital projection screen can do it.

With all of Pixar's future releases and many of Disney's going into that format (as well as DreamWorks, etc), it'll hopefully soon be at most if not all multiplexes.


I'm really looking forward to seeing this film. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories and Tim Burton's work is amazing so it should be a brilliant film  :mrgreen:

When I read the other day that Matt Lucas was playing Tweedle dee and tweedle dum I was so happy. Everything for this film sounds perfect, the cast is so far excellent and the director, well, Burton is the best man for the job.

I was a bit iffy when I read that the film will be using the same technique as Beowolf (actors rendered and slightly modified into 3D animated characters). Beowolf destroyed this entire concept, lets hope Burton uses it to his advantage though. I think I read somewhere that he will also use some 2D animation, that intrigues me.

I believe filming starts next month, or its started, can't remember :D

Can't wait to hear more!!!

I'm probably the only one who thinks this but i feel this film could flop because of the big names they're casting, I'd say Johnny Depp will do a good job as the Mad Hatter but Matt Lucas, im not too sure, i'd say though, i'd say it depends on who will be in the film, if Burton picks really big names then i feel this could be a flop, hopefully i'm proven wrong though :P
