Granted, it seems that Mr. Burton and John August wants to stick to the original book more than David Seltzer and Wolper did, does it seem to me that this version is more surreal than Roald Dahl’s version?
And does anyone find the similar high cheek bones, limp locks, rosy lips, and pale complexion of Johnny Depp (as well as the enticing of children into his wonderland…) eerily similar to…oh, say well-known celebrity who was recently under trial?
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present…
I daresay we have a new “Gloved One”…
Okay, seriously. I am looking forward to seeing this new take on Dahl’s book. We grew up with Gene Wilder as the unpredictable, original Dubya. I’m interested in Johnny Depp’s spin on the character. The sets themselves look like someone you might see in a dream…or a Dr. Seuss book.
