Video: Alice in Wonderland movie from 1903

Tim Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie is getting even us excited. But let’s turn back time 107 years for a second to watch the first Alice in Wonderland movie ever made. This version from 1903 (imdb entry), recently restored by the British Film Institute, isn’t even 10 minutes long, but it’s pretty cool, especially when you consider when the movie was filmed.

And even though the film is from 1903, when most people didn’t even know what a film is, it contains a few creative “special effects”. But Avatar would have given people back then a heart attack probably.

Here’s the movie:
