The Story of My Life, Can't Blame It On The Alcohol
Flabbergasted i must say. Found out the The God of Creepy Animation, whom I praise at any open opportunity is "re-imagining", as they say, the story none other than ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Walt Disney Pictures has released the first promotional photos from Tim Burton's 3D re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland . Above you can see the first official photos of Johnny Depp as a freakish looking Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen (”Off With Their Heads”), and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, looking very pale.
According to USA Today the movie is actually a sequel in some ways. The film begins at a party where Alice, now 17, finds out that she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty high society types. She makes a run for it, and of course, ends up following a white rabbit down a hole, back to Wonderland — a place where she visited a decade prior. The White Rabbit is convinced that he has the right girl but Alice doesn’t remember her past visit to Wonderland. The creatures of Wonderland are ready to revolt and are hoping/waiting for Alice to help them, but will she? Can she?
