Not Wonderland (the Broadway musical) but a Tim Burton inspired musical in London?

whilst i think a musical of alice in wonderland (the original story) is a great idea this movie was a massive diaappointment (and im a burton and disney fan). the plot needs a lot of work. tim burtons visuals on stage though could be amazing

I think Burtons vision would be stunning onstage. Plus, putting Burtons name onto this show would have a massive pull, especially considering this film is one of the highest grossing films of all time

Visually it would be, but the story needs a lot of work. Whilst the movie was a huge hit at the time, that was due to expectation and hype.  Speak to many people who saw it, or have seen it since and its a very mixed response.  Burtons name though would definately attract people and attention

I too found the movie a massive disappointment. That is, that I saw of it before I left.

The book would need overhauling, the reason why the film was successful was because it was in 3D and it starred Johnny Depp

I think if you put Burton, Depp and Bonham Carter in the same film, its a surefire hit (see Sweeney Todd and Dark Shadows)

Sweeney Todd and Dark Shadows got huge takings at the box office

As did Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which again starred Johnny, Helena and was directed by Burton

dark shadows was a massive flop and sweeney whilst did well for a musical movie it did perform under what was hoped and thats why they played the musical aspect in all trailers etc
