Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" Scares Me Already

I've always loved the story of Alice in Wonderland, with it's classic once-upon-a-time fairytale imaginationland vibe. I always pictured the sweet old Rev. Dodgson telling this story to those sweet little girls, Edith and Alice Liddell, who were in rapt wonder, mesmerized by the land of talking rabbits and mice and playing cards that could arrange themselves. Never did I ever imagine the creatures that populated this famous tale to look anything like the nightmarish creations of Tim Burton. Then again, what did I expect, really? Burton has a way with story-telling and an unearthly talent for setting a scene that is unlike any you'll ever encounter in real life. When you think about it, Alice in Wonderland is one of the most bizarre children's stories  of all time, especially for its time. Here then are some of the strange beasts we will be seeing in Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, arriving in theaters this month:
The March Hare

The Caterpillar

The Bandersnatch

Tweedledee and Tweedledum

The Dormouse

The White Rabbit
