Alice in Burtonland

Yesterday Betsy Bird pointed out that some of the recent casting news for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland involved characters from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass.   I’ve been following this for a while, being both a fan of Carroll’s work (educating alice, remember?) and Burton’s, and I’d say that combining the two works (as was done with the older Disney animated film) is the least of it.  Above is a shot from the set of Alice herself (looking much older than Carroll’s eight year-old) and from what I can tell from this Tim Burton fan site, a whole lot of adapting is going on.
