In anticipation of the Tim Burton Alice extravaganza, I've been gathering all my favourite Wonderland images together for a post, so when I got a press release from The British Library last night, I knew the time had come to blog about it. Home to the original Alice in Wonderland manuscript, the British Library is teaming up with Disney to bring us 'Curiouser and Curiouser: The Genius of Alice In Wonderland' celebrating Alice in words, conversation and film. Michael Sheen(White Rabbit) Matt Lucas (Tweedledum and Tweedledee) and Christopher Lee (TheJabberwock) who all star in the forthcoming Tim Burton version will be participating in the event on Wednesday 24th February, 18.30 at the British Library. Writer Will Self will be discussing the Alice stories, as well as legendary producer Richard Zanuck and co-producer Joe Roth of Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, and there'll also be a screening of the earliest film version from 1903,recently restored by the BFI and shown with a live piano accompaniment.Tickets here, get them now as I think this will sell out FAST.
Probably my favourite version of Alice- equally creepy and enchanting; you'll never forget the taxidermied white rabbit coming to life and feeding himself sawdust;as trippy as Lewis would have wanted.
