Well it wasn’t supposed to debut until sometime tomorrow, but apparently Disney just couldn’t wait to unveil the first trailer for Tim Burton’s 3-D take on Alice in Wonderland. The trailer has arrived online a day early, and it looks pretty sweet! It’s the kind of thing that’s probably going to be a lot more impressive when you see it on the big screen in 3-D (there’s plenty of stuff flying at the screen), but I still like the look of the characters and the overall feel of the movie.
It’s certainly a lot more CG-heavy than most of Tim Burton’s previous work, as pretty much everything looks to be green-screened save for the actors. Burton was known for mostly using practical effects in the past, but he did experiment with a lot of digital environments recently in Sweeney Todd. Although this is really just a teaser trailer, it still shows off quite a few characters. It doesn’t appear to be as dark as I originally thought it might be, but it still looks like a lot of fun. What do you think? Alice in Wonderland hits theatres on March 5th, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump.
