For Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Walt Disney Studios has gone the extra mile to create this traveling exhibit featuring props and models from the upcoming feature. After entering the main doors, you travel down the rabbit hole into Alice’s room featuring a very large Alice model along with her dress, the drink me bottles, the eat me cakes and other props. Other rooms include the Mad Tea Party where you’ll find the Mad Hatter’s wardrobe (and hair), the Red Queen’s Throne room and the White Queen’s room which also contains battle gear for Alice and the Mad Hatter.

Disney at San Diego Comic-Con, Day Two: Inside Flynn’s Arcade, Home of Tron

In celebration of Tron Legacy, Walt Disney Studios has re-created Flynn’s Arcade off-site in San Diego, complete with ’80s arcade classics and a few other surprises. The campaign started off when Disney mailed tokens to Flynn’s Arcade to attendees with a coded message to visit the site Flynn Lives, a site purported to have been created by a group of unknowns who have followed the disappearance of Kevin Flynn some 27 years ago, claiming him to still be alive. The site gave the message to its visitors to go to a specific location in San Diego at a specific time and there attendees found themselves inside Flynn’s Arcade.

The first ever 3D panel at Comic-Con featured emcee Patton Oswald (voice of Remy), directors Tim Burton, Robert Zemeckis and Joe Kosinski (pictured, left) as well as a host of surprise guests, footage and more.

In addition to the current projects, Burton offered that he’ll be working on his take of the supernatural cult-classic soap opera, Dark Shadows. Robert Zemeckis, having expressed interest in a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? in the past, was unable to either confirm or deny if it’ll be on his plate any time soon.

It’s on Time! It’s on Time! I Don’t Have a Silly Rhyme! Alice in Wonderland Teaser Trailer Released

Yesterday, as you are probably aware, the teaser trailer to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland was released prematurely. Although we did manage to save our own copy, when it became evident that Walt Disney Studios was not a fan of the breach, it was decided to simply delete the post that linked to it. So for that we both apologize to and appreciate those who posted the many links to our site posted on forums all over (on some interesting non-Disney topic forums too).

BURBANK, Calif. — As Tim Burton and Lewis Carroll fans become curiouser and curiouser (Carroll, 1865) about Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming “Alice in Wonderland” film, Disney Interactive Studios today announced development of video game adaptations of the beloved story. The video games, inspired by Tim Burton’s highly anticipated film starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, find Alice several years after the original “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” stories. Alice in Wonderland for Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and Windows-based PC takes players on a topsy-turvy and immersive journey in Underland as Alice finds herself in a world of illusion and magic where nothing is quite like it seems. Alongside her endearing friends – Mad Hatter, March Hare, Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit – players aid Alice to defeat the Red Queen and Jabberwocky. Alice in Wonderland mobile games will begin launching later this year.

“These games fully capture the magnificent and whimsical world of Underland while experiencing key moments from the film,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “More than just a retelling of the movie, Alice in Wonderland introduces fans to an entirely new style of innovative gameplay designed to challenge the puzzle solving skills of older players while making the adventures accessible and enjoyable for the younger crowd. Innovative gameplay and distinct artistic styles on each platform give players a range of unique and engaging experiences.”
