Alice In Wonderland Character Designs & Hi-res Images

Published 4 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:27 pm,

Slash Film pointed us to a (German?) site that has exclusive pictures of Tim Burton’s upcoming re-imagining of Alice In Wonderland. The pictures are pretty interesting in that they paint – from early concept to finished reality – a picture of how filmmakers are realizing the crazy characters of Wonderland.

If you’re a fan of concept art, or if you just want to see a few colorful and well-rendered images from one of the most beloved stories of all time, then continue reading.

I won’t take up any more of your time talking – you’re here to see the pretty pictures and so the pretty pictures are what I will provide, courtesy of Animatie Blog.

Take a look at a set of progression shots, detailing how the Chesire Cat is brought to life:

Next, some concept art of the Wonderland characters:

And finally, some gorgeous hi-res stills of the finished product(s):

 

 

The more I see, the more I’m getting excited for Tim Burton’s take on Wonderland. There’s so much more to see, so to check out the full gallery go HERE.

In case you’re not up on the story: In this sequel of sorts, Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now a teenager, returns to Wonderland with no memory of her prior visit. The evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) has conquered the land, leaving the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the other mad inhabitants of Wonderland to rally behind their long-lost Alice.

Alice In Wonderland hits theaters (in 3D) on March 5, 2010.

  1. am i the only one who thinks American McGee should have written this movie, or at least let'em use his designs.
    i loved American McGee's “Alice” and thats the 1st thing i thought of when i heard that Tim Burton was doing alice in wonderland.

  2. I don't know, but being a McGee fan in this case is sort of like finding the working man's Tim Burton and hoping he gets the job instead of Tim. It's unfortunate that McGee's Alice has been passed all around Hollywood and now no doubt many will say American was short changed by the system. McGee would've been better served at Dimension films. At least I think they would taken the production of his work more seriously. It seems like a classic case of over reaching. I think if you have something like McGee has with his game properties, branching out requires that you have the requisite skills to do so. He should've wrote his own script or had it wrote before trying to sell the idea.

    Burton has said on several occasions that he likes to have unique outlooks, read his own, on what ever he does. Cliff Kuang has written as an intro to a Burton MoMa exhibit: “Tim Burton has built his career on a personal aesthetic and vision.” The exhibit at MoMa in NY, 700+ objects and artwork runs through April 26, 2010.

    Imagine a McGee success story; The man produces popular game based on dark version of Alice in wonderland. Goes and learns scriptwriting. Writes script. Pitches to most appropriate studio first, Dimension films. Gets green light goes on to write “An American Werewolf in London” which Dimension is interested in remaking, by the way. Becomes nearly overnight mega-success. Just a dream because of a lack of education and perhaps some luck…

  3. While I'm excited about this movie, I am a little disappointed that some of my favortie actors will not be seen. When I heard that not only Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway were going to be in this movie, but also Micahel Sheen, Alan Rickman, and Stephen Fry… amazing! But then I read that I won't even see them! The White Rabbit, The Caterpillar, and The Cheshire Cat (respectively) are all digital. Not that they don't look great… but I consider it vastly disappointing.

  4. i feel your pain

  5. Somebody please tell Tim Burton that everything doesn't have to be all dark, brooding and scary! Geeez!!! That version of the Mad Hatter is awfeul with all that make up and no buck teeth. The Mad Hatter is not supposed to look like a gay transvetite clown. The Mad Hatter should look like how Tom Petty looked in the “Don't come around here no more” video. Is Tim Burton in love with Johnny Depp?!! GAWD!!!

  6. The Mad Hatter looks like a damn crazy freakin Drag Queen with a top hat. Shame on you Tim Burton!

  7. I meant aweful! My bad.
