I am getting so excited because my friend and I will watch Alice in Wonderland this weekend. I am a big fan of Lewis Caroll and his famous creation – Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland. Now, I’m getting more excited knowing that Tim Burton, who was also the director of the films “Edward Scissorhands” and “The Nightmare before Christmas”, will be directing a new version of this book, this movie will definitely be a big hit for everyone. I remember myself watching the animated version of Disney. My brother and I keep asking out mom to play that video cassette for us. (Take not, that’s VHS era). However, in this new movie, instead of seeing a young cute little Alice, we will be seeing teenage version of her. Obviously, this is a sequel (but definitely not based on Lewis Caroll books). In this film, Alice, who is now 19 years old, accidentally returns to Underland. There’ll be some changes in the movie. Instead of seeing the Queen of Hearts, there’ll be the Red Queen. Anne Hathaway will play the role of the White Queen while Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. Mia Wasikowska will portray Alice’s character.
Even we enjoy adapted movies like this; nothing can break the thrill if you will read the actual books. Some of my favorite writers aside from Lewis Caroll would be Roald Dahl and William Shakespeare.
