It looks like a sequel to Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ is currently in the works over at Walt Disney Studios. The first film was a smash hit globally, bringing in over $1 billion worldwide, so it’s no surprise that Disney would look at returning to it. The studio has hired Linda Woolverton, who wrote the script for the first film, to return to pen the sequel. Plot details about the sequel are being kept under wraps, so we have no idea who will return, but I’d bet we’ll see Mia Wasikowska return as Alice, and with Depp’s great working relationship with Disney, he may return as the Mad Hatter. Tim Burton is the wild card though, because he’s only made one sequel in his career, ‘Batman Returns’, and has avoided sequels for the most part. But with rumors circulating that he’s toying with the idea of ‘Beetlejuice 2′, maybe there’s a chance we’ll see Burton return to the director’s chair as well. For now, there’s very little else we know, so keep an eye out, as we’ll post more when we know it.
The growing trend right now for Walt Disney Studios seems to be returning to many of their animated films and turning them into live action films. I like the unique storytelling it brings to the stories. With work right now on live action re-tellings of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in the form of ‘Maleficent’, a new take on Peter Pan in ‘Peter and the Starcatchers’, and the development of a new ‘Cinderella’ film by the studio, I wonder what else we could see the studio returning to?
Are you excited to return to the world of Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’? Or would you rather it be left alone and Disney wouldn’t do live action versions of their animated films? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company.
Is Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort the right place to take up residence while visiting Walt Disney World ? I say absolutely if……
- You enjoy convenience to all the parks and several popular restaurants. Since the Grand Floridian is a “monorail resort”, you can monorail to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT in a very easy, very timely fashion. When our family stayed at the Grand Floridian, we found the monorail to be the best transportation option if we needed to get to the Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom is the first stop from the Grand Floridian on the monorail. Ohana, located at Disney’s Polynesian Resort and Chef Mickey’s, located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort are also very short monorail rides from the Grand.
- You want magical, enjoyable character meal options at your resort. At the Grand Floridian, you can enjoy breakfast, dinner or tea time at 1900 Park Fare. This is located in the main building, just to the left as you enter from the front main entrance. The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast features Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, and other well known characters who mingle from table to table while you enjoy a buffet style meal. For dinner, your princess and little prince charming can enjoy visiting with Cinderella, Prince Charming, and their friends. For an afternoon break from the parks, enjoy tea time with Alice and other Wonderland friends. Your children can decorate cupcakes, do crafts, and enjoy some “tea” (aka apple juice).
What can be better than an “Alice in Wonderland” themed tea party play area? An “Alice in Wonderland” themed tea party play area built into the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! The new splash zone area comes complete with tea cups, tea pots and of course the Mad Hatter leaves his mark as his famous hat dumps water on you and your kids. There are slides and sprinklers and many fun areas to enjoy the newest play area of Walt Disney World.
