Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland: A Visual Companion Book Review

About the Book: Think you know the classic story of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland? Think again. Renowned director and producer Tim Burton (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach, Edward Scissorhands, Beatlejuice, Batman) has applied his signature stamp to this beloved tale, and will be sharing it with audiences in 2010! This splendid "Making/Art of" will take readers to the world behind Burton’s camera, revealing the secrets of performance-capture technology, the marriage of live-action and CGI technology, and displaying its singular style in a deluxe, artistic format. Fans will delight in reading about  Johnny Depp's performance as The Mad Hatter, and Ann Hathaway as The White Queen, to name just a few of the star performances. And, of course, the book will chronicle Tim Burton's unique techniques. This gorgeous book is sure to be at the top of everyone's gift list!

Our Take:  We were blown away by Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland.  His vision for this tale of what happens when an adult Alice re-visits Wonderland was visually stunning.  We saw it in IMAX 3D and there is just nothing like it.  When I saw a visual companion that was being released by Disney Press, I just had to nab it.

This hardcover book comes with a dust jacket that features Alice (see pic above).  The pages are jam-packed full of information and images about the making of the film, including tons of 'green screen' pictures of the characters in their green suits with the green backrounds that were later filled-in with computer animation.  Its amazing how much of the film was actually computer fabricated...pretty much all of it! 

Any fan of Tim Burton or Alice in Wonderland needs this book!
