Tim Burton has ruled out an 'Alice in Wonderland' sequel.

While the director admitted the ambiguous ending of the film - starring his frequent collaborator Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter - has left the story open to a sequel, he thinks it would be a bad idea to continue the story in a new movie.

He told MTV News: "That's what the material does to me, it leaves it open for you. It's kind of like dreams. It leaves it open, as it should, for interpretation.

"It's like I got a lot of pressure to do a sequel to Nightmare Before Christmas, and I just didn't want to do that, because some movies should just be Left Alone. I think it keeps their kind of spirit intact in a way."

The eccentric director also revealed he is grateful to the studio Disney for not putting pressure on him to return to his re-imagining of the classic tale.

He explained: "That was smart of them. They saw that it was kind of its own thing. They didn't push for it at all, which I thought was really amazing, and smart, and right."

Although Tim will not make another 'Alice in Wonderland' movie, he is currently in talks to turn the story into a Broadway show.

He said: I'm talking to them about that just because there was a seedling of an idea that I thought was interesting. I don't know how far it will go, but it's something. I've always kind of wanted to do something live onstage. I'm just going to explore it and see what happens.
