Tim Burton explores “Alice in Wonderland”

Q: What did you take from Lewis Carol’s source material?

A: It’s based on all of Lewis Carol’s material, including the “Jabberwocky Poem.” Past “Alice” films were always just a girl wandering around passively with a lot of weird characters. We tried to weave it into a story that has emotion to it and makes sense.

In case no one has brought it to your attention yet, the author of “Alice” is Lewis Carroll, not Carol.

Hello, you or someoneĀ attempted to correct Lewis Carroll’s name in the Tim Burton interview for “Alice In Wonderland” — but the correction is wrong! It was initially “Carol,” now it’s “Carrol,” when it should be “Carroll.” Oy!

MerrickĀ Again….

Thanks. Oy indeed. We corrected. Twice: GBU Editor
