I've been reading little tiny bits and pieces about Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland. True to Tim Burton's form he is not re-creating any previous version. It seems that his version is a combination of the original two books, "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass". From the small leaks of aspects of the screen play it seems that the story is told through an Alice who is slightly older than when she was in Wonderland. "In this film she’s dreaming of it at a somewhat later part of her life than in the books, so certain things are different." says Linda Woolverton who wrote the screen play that Burton's version is based on.
So any way, my daily search for just a little bit more info on this film must have filtered into my psyche and last night I dreamed of it. I was the King of Hearts in Wonderland and as my army of cards trumpeted my entrance I listened to the fanfare they were playing and decided it was not suitable enough for me. I wanted them to play The Imperial March from Star Wars. I walked the long red carpet laid out before me and when I reached my throne I doubled over with a maniacal laughter. Fun but weird huh?
