The intriguingly bizarre Hollywood duo of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp is due to release another high anticipated cult favorite, Alice In Wonderland, in 2010. Think the dark humorous twists Burton is so apt for (Edward Scissorhands, slightly disturbing twists on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, and the demented musical Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) put on another childhood classic– the trailer shows an adult revival of the beloved tale– starring Johnny Depp as the less cuddly, all the more unhinged Mad Hatter.
To commemorate the release of yet another hit adaptation, Medicom Toy has collaborated with Alice In Wonderland to produce a pack of vinyl toys. The Alice In Wonderland pack, like the company’s previous collaboration with Where The Wild Things Are, will come in a mix of Ultra Detailed Figures (UDF) and a Kubrick Be@rbrick Set. Alice and Mad Hatter will be rendered in the less toy-like UDF, with Mad Hatter coming in two different sizes (17cm and 30cm), and the Kubrick Be@rbrick Set is a mix of Mad Hatter (Kubrick) and Cheshire Cat (Be@rbrick). The set is due to release alongside the movie’s release in March 2010. Stay tuned, add this to the list of items to look forward to in 2010 and just await a kick-ass trip to the down the rabbit hole.
Release Date: March 2010
