I’ve come across some concept art made by concept illustrator Stephan Martiniere back in 2006 for the proposed Looking Glass Wars movie which looks pretty cool. Although these are from a few years back, Stephan has them filed under “Live Action Feature Films” on his official website. The designs look extremely similar to characters from the early ’90s Sunday morning cartoon King Arthur and The Knights of Justice, which Martiniere worked on as a character designer. The Looking Glass Wars is a trilogy of novels (also the title of the first in the series) written by former skier turned filmmaker/actor Frank Beddor, and is basically an action heavy re-imagining of Lewis Carroll’s classic novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass. The proposed film is being produced by Charles Roven (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and is one of numerous fantasy films he has lined up, including the Warcraft and God of War movies. However, I believe that for this production to move forward Tim Burton’s unrelated re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland will have to first be a success at the box office.
Check out the artwork. Characters are named Club, Diamond, Heart, Spade, and of course, Alyss.
Thanks to /Film for the tip.
