I was never much of a fan of the original animated version of Alice in Wonderland. As a kid, I was really afraid of most Disney movies, and Alice was one of them. However, the Disney channel had a show called Adventures in Wonderland that I absolutely adored. It had actors (I hated cartoons as a kid), and it was whimsical, colorful, and fun! Did you ever watch it?
Needless to say, when I heard they were making Alice again, I hoped it would be like my fun, colorful, and whimsical childhood favorite. Then, I heard Tim Burton was making it, and knew that wasn't going to happen. After watching Burton's version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I had a horrible feeling he would ruin this for me too. I absolutely hated his version of Charlie, and disliked how it made a fun story so dark, bizarre, and scary. Although I feared his version of Alice would be the same, I definitely was intrigued and wanted to see it!
