In an interview done by Rebecca Murray, representative for about.com Tim Burton was asked about what exactly is so appealing about the dead. After joking about his upbringing him leading to his interest in the undead his real answer was that he has always been a fan of monster movies and even fascinated by them in a way. Living close to Mexico and viewing their celebration for the Day of the Dead gave him a much more positive approach to thinking of death and thus he chose that view over the dark subject America tends to view it as.

Burton’s friendship with Johnny Depp is part of the lure audiences have for the director. Having worked on many films together it has given the two the chance to get to know one another. Burton knows what roles are suited for Depp, the ones he knows only dept can play and makes sure to cast him in those roles.
