Photo Flash: Walt Disney Pictures Presents Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Walt Disney Pictures presents a bold new take on the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland which will hit movie screens in 2010. Directed by Tim Burton, 'Alice' stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Mia Wasikowska as Alice. It will be presented in Disney Digital 3D.
The March 5, 2010 release, also stars Michael Sheen, Crispin Glover, Stephen Fry and Alan Rickman. Helena Bonham Carter (The Red Queen) and Alan Rickman. Both Bonham Carter and Rickman starred with Depp in Burton's big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd.
Disney's Alice in Wonderland is almost like a sequel to the original story. The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton of Beauty and the Beast fame. Press notes describe the film as, "Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember."
