First Look At Alice And Tweedles
More art from Burton's Wonderland

22 June 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips  |  Source: Yahoo

In addition to the early concept art and character shots from Tim Burton's weird and wonderful Alice In Wonderland, two more shots - this time of Alice herself, as well as Tweedledum and Tweedledee - have popped up online.

It looks like Matt Lucas really has been eating all the pies, as he is animated into an almost egg-like form as the rotund Tweedle twins. Obviously no one told the poor Tweedles that horizontal stripes just aren't a flattering look.

Mia Wasikowska's Alice is suitably demure and innocent looking standing atop a saucer in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland. Unlike the original Lewis Carroll tale, Alice is a seventeen year old, returning to Wonderland a decade on, with no recollection of her first visit as a seven year old girl.

The film version combines elements from both of Carroll's Alice stories - Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass - adding that distinctive Burton quirk along the way.

Alice In Wonderland is due in cinemas on March 12 2010. Only nine months to wait for this baby!

Tweedles...

Addams Family Values?
I really am not a fan of Burton's vision and interpretation of the Alice in Wonderland books, but i think the australian actress Mia Wasikowska does look like a really good Alice. The image of Matt lucas as Tweedledee/Tweddledum on the other hand is horrible, i think it's even worse than the picture of Johhny Depp as the Mad Hatter. He looks like the kid brother to Christina Ricci's Wednesday Adams from the Addams Family Values film blown up with really bad photoshop. Horrible. Perhaps i'm biase More

I prefer these character concepts to yesterdays. Really REALLY don't like the Mad Hatter in this at all. More

I must say I like the whole 'Return to Oz' thing of Alice going back when she's older, although obviously Dorothy remembered. Having an older Alice also means they can go slightly darker without offending any PC loving goons. As for the twins, it's more or less what I expected. I'm really excited by the look of the concept art. If this goes well it could be Burton's best. Let's hope. More

Hoping
This being a Burton film of two Carroll fantasies, dare we hope for a suitably grotesque Jabberwocky? More

Agreed on the disappointing design for the twins, it looks like a very bad Photoshop job and their heads are about to start bobbing up and down like those nodding dogs. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I'm getting a bit worried about this. . . More

They look creepy, and very wrong. I'm quite disappointed actually, just look like two wee fatties with Matt Lucas face poorly stuck on More
