'Alice in Wonderland' Stays Classic Without Losing Its Freshness

October 16, 2008 08:10:44 GMT


Having "Alice in Wonderland", a new animated feature project, under his sleeves, awards-winning director Tim Burton openly shares his ideas on the Walt Disney movie with Los Angeles Times while chatting about Spike TV's Third Annual Scream Awards "Scream 2008". In re-imagining the flick, he states, "It's a funny project. The story is obviously a classic with iconic images and ideas and thoughts. But with all the movie versions, well, I've just never seen one that really had any impact to me."

"It's always just a series of weird events. Every character is strange and she's just kind of wandering through all of the encounters as just a sort of observer," he explained, further adding what he is aiming for with the film. "The goal is to try to make it an engaging movie where you get some of the psychology and kind of bring a freshness but also keep the classic nature of 'Alice.' And, you know, getting to do it in 3-D fits the material quite well. So I'm excited about making it a new version but also have the elements that people expect when they think of the material."
