I'm curious as to how well this film performed in Japan. Japan seems to take to "cute" films, as evidenced by the reception of Lilo and Stitch and Wreck-It Ralph.
Another notable difference in the Japanese version is the fact that Alice's stockings have been reverted to the all white one's in the movie and more notably, her shoes have been changed from black to red. Red shoes are actually quite common in Japanese Alice illustrations (and in fact the illustrations of many other fairy tale heroines) for uncertain reasons (my personal theory is that, since practically every child in Japan learns the song Aki I Ku Tsu (red shoes) as a kid (it's on the level of learning "three blind mice" or "twinkle twinkle little star here" red shoes have gotten associated with foreign girls.
