The folk at Disney have sent us a wonderful collection of concept artwork from Tim Burton's new adaptation of Alice In Wonderland. Below we have our very first look at Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen and Matt Lucas as Tweedledee / Tweedledum.
Other members of the cast include Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, Stephen Fry as The Cheshire Cat, Christopher Lee as the Jabberwock, Crispin Glover as The Knave of Hearts and Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar.
USA Today reports today that the movie is more of a sequel to Lewis Carrol's 1865 story, The Red Queen and The Tweedles come from the 1871 sequel 'Through The Looking Glass'. The story takes pace ten years after Alice's first visit to Wonderland, of which she has no recollection. Now 17, Alice mixes in high society circles and on the day of a wedding proposal she finds herself back in Wonderland, a place where she visited a decade prior.
The movie finished a 40 day shoot in December 2008, FX shots and post production will continue during 2009 and the film will open in Irish cinemas on March 12th 2010.
