Personal Quote:

All these kinds of stories, whether it be The Wizard of Oz (1939) or Alice in Wonderland (2010), are an internal journey. I think that's a fairly universal concept. These characters represent things inside the human psyche. I think that's what every child does. You try to work out problems as you go along. Same thing as an adult. Some people get therapy, some people get to make movies. See more »

Trivia:

There were conversations of directing the Broadway musical version of his film Batman (1989) in 2002. The opening night would have been after 2005 but the project was abandoned. See more »

Trademark:

His films often have a Gothic feel to them, often including Christmas and/or Halloween scenes. See more »

Star Sign:

Virgo
