'Alice' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Feb 10, 2014 at 08:00 AM PST by

Jan Svankmajer's 1988 stop-motion version of the Lewis Carroll classic is in the works for Blu-ray in April. Pre-orders are now available here!

In an early announcement to retailers, First Run Features is working on 'Alice' for Blu-ray on April 15.

When Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, so begins this dream expedition into the astonishing landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to Alice's trial before the King and Queen of Hearts. Czech animator Jan Svankmajer has created a masterpiece of cinema, a strikingly original interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale. Svankmajer's Alice remains true to the absurdity of Carroll's original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives a new and fascinating dimension to the timeless tale of childhood fantasies.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
