We’re not opposed to change as long as it’s as enjoyable as the book and it maintains the essence of the story and the characters. It looks to still have some “peculiar” elements, which is integral to the story, and honestly, some of those scenes look pretty cool.  It also seems to fit the bill of Tim Burton’s kind of story to adapt.
