Alice In Wonderland
The costumes, sets, computer effects and animation, lighting, makeup, physical effects and sheer scope of the film are breath-taking. This is Alice In Wonderland as it should appear-not as watered down animated films or anemic film adaptations seen so many times before.
Tim Burton captures the essence of the books and the weirdness, wonder and magic that makes the books so enjoyable so many years after they first appeared. There is something timeless about the Alice stories that strike a cord in everyone. Alice’s struggle with growing up, taking on responsibility and fitting in is something everyone can identify with.
Alice In Wonderland from Walt Disney Pictures is available on Blu-ray that also comes with a standard DVD disc and a special digital copy.
Look for some cool extras about the making of the film, cast interviews, scoring, costume design, commentaries and much, much more. Curiouser and curiouser!
