Ode to Lewis Carroll

The Cheshire Cat sings part of “The Jabberwocky” in the Disney cartoon version of Alice in Wonderland, which incorporates material from Lewis Carroll’s original book, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and its sequel,”Through the Looking Glass: and what Alice found there.”

Q: Are books always better?

A: Yes.

Q: Better than what?

A: Movies.

Q: Why is that?

A: I don’t know.

Q: Must have something to do with the imagination.

A: Hmmm?

Q: Wait The Jabberwocky was part of Lewis Carroll’s original book?

A: “Jabberwocky” was in the sequel. Like Alice in Wonderland is Star Wars (Episode IV) and “Through the Looking   Glass” is Empire Strikes Back. Jabberwocky was like Darth telling Luke, “I’m your father.”

Q: haha. 🙂 I just think it’s an interesting choice to incorporate into a movie that’s supposed to be an interpretation of the ORIGINAL classic, yadig?

A: Interpretation of a classic? That’s so pastiche. It’s impossible to remake the original. Better just to make an original.But what comes after Post-Modern? Let’s create it. : )
