New "Wonderland" Concept Art?

Is this more concept art from Alice in Wonderland? The Russian film website has posted up these images, mostly of a fungal forest.

The initials "JM" appear at the bottom of these illustrations. If it is for Wonderland, then these might have been drawn by either lead model maker Jason Mahakian or set designer Jeff Markwith, as slashfilm suggests.

However, this is just a guess. We can't confirm if these images are actually official concept art for the 2010 film. Still, they're intriguing.

Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, and Christopher Plummer. Oh, and it has that epic Coheed and Cambria song, too.

"Alice in Wonderland" Story and Glossary

/film has provided some interesting information about Alice in Wonderland, based on the screenplay by Linda Woolverton:

"The big surprise for most people, I think, will be that this is at once an adaptation of and sequel to the Lewis Carroll books. This is thanks to a plot wrangle at least as clever as that in Abrams’ Star Trek. Essentially, Wonderland is both a real place and a recurring dream of Alice’s. In this film she’s dreaming of it at a somewhat later part of her life than in the books, so certain things are different. This is just one clever element of a truly charming and surprising screenplay that I’m now really very sure will become a true humdinger of a movie."

The article went on to say that to fully understand the script, you need to know a bit of Wonderland terminology. Thankfully, Woolverton provided a glossary. The glossary may contain some SPOILERS, so if you want to read it, click on this link.
