I recall the story of Alice as being a quirky children’s tale about a young girl who falls asleep and dreams of a place where rabbits tell time, caterpillars smoke
weed hookah pipes, and a lot of stock is placed in one’s ability to memorize poems.
Tim Burton clearly got a lot more out of it. Images from his film adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland have made their way to the web, and unlike Disney’s first delightful adaptation that gave birth to two delightful rides at Disneyland featuring delightful singing flowers and whimsical spinning teacups, this one features what might be a killer clown and Anne Hathaway. (Sorry, that was redundant.)
Take a peek at some photos of the cast:
Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter (or, Madonna and Carrot Top’s love child, apparently)
Anne Hathaway as the White Queen (whom I don’t recall at all from the book)
Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen
Matt Lucas as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum
Knowing Burton’s ability to create fantastical, fantasy-like worlds, this should be interesting, at the very least. And by interesting, I mean “just a little terrifying.” Right?
