Anne Hathaway and Burton regular Helena Bonham Carter join cast for “Alice in Wonderland”

Anne Hathaway and  Helena Bonham Carter have joined the cast of  Tim Burton’s latest Disney project “Alice in Wonderland”


The movie, which stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, will use a combination of live action and performance-capture technology to tell the Lewis Carroll story.


Hathaway is playing the White Queen, a benevolent monarch who is deposed and banished by her sister, the Red Queen (Carter), who has an affinity for crying out, “Off with their heads!” The White Queen needs Alice to slay a creature known as the Bandersnatch.


 

Hathaway next appears on Irish screens in the horror thriller “Passengers.”
