It was apparently released by a few sites a day earlier than Disney wanted it to be, so by now it has been removed from most. I did get a chance to watch it before it’s removed, and it was just as magical as I thought it would be, though I do have a few complaints. It seemed a little too cg-ey for Tim Burton and I don’t recall the Mad Hatter being the protagonist of the story, but you’ll never hear me complain about having to watch Johnny Depp for a few hours… Regardless, from the very first clip of the trailer it is obvious that this is going to be “Burton” film, and in my eyes that is never a bad thing.
Speaking of Alice in Wonderland, Does anyone else remember the version that aired in 1985 on the Disney channel? My parent’s recorded it on VHS when I was a kid, and it was typically watched it at least once a week until my tape finally died on me. I can still remember the horrible Kraft commercials that I would have to fast forward through. For being made-for-TV, it was, and still is, quite entertaining. If you haven’t seen it you should definitely check it out to get your “Alice” fix before Burton’s is released next spring on March 5th. It actually has some pretty disturbing moments. Did anyone else have nightmares about the Jabberwocky? Here is one of the not so scary clips with Sammy Davis Jr… and you KNOW I had this shit memorized.
and here is the scene that was playing the first time I crapped my pants sans a diaper.
