Wonderland, it’s never very far…
The numbers in the upper right corner, so cool!
“If you look at IMDb’s character page for Alice, the heroine of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, you’ll find at least 50 different interpretations of the role. That’s because filmmakers and storytellers keep finding different ways to tell an Alice tale, be she a mild-mannered youth (Disney’s animatedAlice in Wonderland), armor-clad heroine (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland), or something altogether more subversive (Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s Lost Girls).
It’s not clear, however, what the BBC and Warner Home Video add to the conversation with its recent featureless releases of two decades-old television miniseries. The BBC reverses Carroll’s story order, starting with Alice Through the Looking Glass in 1973, then following up with Alice in Wonderland in 1986. Other than the chronology, everything about these two teleplays is completely conventional and handled better in other adaptations.”
Even if they’re not great adaptations, it’s still pretty cool of the BBC to re-release them, reintroducing them as a resource for scholars and enthusiasts.
