Aloha Friday #16: Alice in Wonderland

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Click above button to get more info.


Here is my question this week:

Will you be seeing Alice in Wonderland when it comes out in March?

Have you ever read the books based on Alice in Wonderland or do you just know the Disney version of the story?

Aloha everyone!!

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

I have heard about the movie and not sure if I will see it. Nothing against it, just have not seen a lot of movies since the kids were born. I am familiar with the original Alice in Wonderland, but have never read it.

I didnt know that they where coming out with a new alice in wonderland. But im probably going to go and see it. I have read the book about alice in wonderland

I do not get to the movies often so I am sure I will not see it when it comes out - maybe on video. I have only seen the Disney version. I do not know the original.

Jennifer said...

Since I have not been to a movie theatre in many years, the odds are I will not be going.

Will so be seeing the movie! HELLO JOHNNY DEPP!!!

I will have to admit the Disney version is the only Alice I have seen. I am in the Alice challenge so I will be for sure reading it soon.

Vicki said...

Never read the books, never seen the movie but do know what it's about. May go see the new movie, I don't know for sure.

Annie said...

I want to see the movie when it comes out! It sounds perfectly weird! I tried to read the books but was more attracted to the classics in high school like Jane Austen and Emily Bronte so I just didn't have time for Carrol. :)

I will definitely see it! Tim Burton is a interesting freak.. I'm really curious how he worked it out this time.. also Johnny Depp:)

Happy Friday! My Aloha is up too:)

Didn't know it was coming out. Read the book and saw Disney's - that's it I'm afraid. I love Disney's stuff. I'm your latest follower. Hope you can find the time to come follow me.

Twincerely,Olga said...

Lilith Silvermane said...

No, I don't go to the movies, in fact it's been over 2 years since I've gone. When it comes out on video? Heck yes!

Tesa said...

I have the Disney cartoon version on DVD. I don't really like the looks of this new one. Personally Johnny Depp bugs me - just like that Willy Wonka one - he ruined a classic! Just my opinion anyway :)

Angelia said...

I will definatly see it! I've read all of Alice in Wonderland and so have my daughters. I can't wait to take them to see it!

Twin-Spiration said...

We are big movie lovers but I haven't heard about the Alice in Wonderland coming out. If it is geared toward children we will defnitely take my girls to see it.
Happy Friday!

I did read the book as a child. Don't even know how many times :)

And I might see the movie when it comes out if we have the $$$ to spare.

Jennifer G. said...

I can't wait for the new movie! Johnny Depp! It looks great!

I've read the original book numerous times, and I obviously love it. I've read another book, called The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor, that was based on Alice and it was okay. I think they're working on a movie based on that too.

Jaymie said...

I have no immediate plans to see Alice and I have not read the original book. I have read Down the Rabbit Hole. I've never really connected with the story enough to dig into the book or see the movies.

Good question!

Becca said...

I think I only know the Disney version. I will see the movie if my friends want to see it lol

a49erfangirl said...

I only know of the Disney Version. I think I saw previews for the movie but I don't remember if I wanted to see it or not.

Cat@3KidsandUs said...

I didn't even know there was a movie coming out...truthfully, I don't think I've ever read the book and don't really know much about the story at all.

Catherine said...

I'll be going to see it in 3D with a fellow Burton addict who works at the cinema. XD Score!
