Curiouser and curiouser…
This week we will see the release of the long awaited sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 remake of Alice In Wonderland. Who would’ve thought that when Lewis Carroll wrote his Victorian literature rule breaking tale of nonsense about a young girl that meets talking animals in a hole in the ground that it would be turned into countless movies, TV shows and merchandise almost two centuries on.
It has been six years since the release of Tim Burton’s remake, a movie that brought the odd, whimsical, eccentric characters of Wonderland to life and showed the viewer a look inside this world and we must say that the team at 8ball are eagerly anticipating the next instalment. Yes it’s true, “We’re all mad here!” Featuring some of Britain’s finest including the voices of Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry, as well as Tim’s go to duo of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter the original was an instant hit, so using the same formula the second should be another Summer blockbuster… right?!
In the meantime, “You’re late. You’re late!” For a very important quiz. With the release of Alice Through The Looking Glass on Friday check out our quiz to find out which mad character from Wonderland you are.
Our Alice in Wonderland T Shirt (and £8 tee of the week) has original artwork from Lewis Carroll’s novel ‘Alice In Wonderland’, as illustrated by John Tenniel for the classic book first published in 1865. It shows the legendary Cheshire Cat up a tree with Alice looking up at him, along with the text “We’re all mad here”. Forget Tim Burton’s movie, this was the original and best!
