Interview with Danny Elfman and Tweedles Dum and Dee

First, don't miss our giveaway of an Alice book, tote, and lithograph by one of my favorite artists, Camille Rose Garcia!

Seeing as how Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland 2010 is coming out in a few weeks, we're getting new info every day. Sometimes several times a day.

Here's a fun "how they did it" article for the motion capture and CGI on the film (pictured above is British comedian Matt Lucas and his double.)

Here's an interview with Danny Elfman, the composer for the film, that I thought was very interesting.
No one can dispute the brilliance of the book. To put that on the screen? That would be really interesting, but it's hard to say what kind of movie it would make, you know, for an hour-and-a-half. So they came up with a concept: Alice is [almost] 20, and she's going to chase the rabbit down the hole and you're going to see all the same stuff, but you also hear these voices. "Is it her?" "It doesn't look like her." "I'm telling you it's her." And then she has to find out if it's a mistake, if she's the right Alice or not. She's been brought there for a purpose. But you still have all the same stuff [as far as imagery] with the Mad Hatter and the tea party and everything.
