USA Today has the first look at Tim Burton’s ‘Wonderland.’ Check out the first look at Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. The article also sheds some light on Burton’s re-imagning of the classic story. Apparently, Wonderland will be a squeal. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?
The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast). 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.
What!? 17 year olds getting married?! An Elijah Wood looking Johnny Depp? Blonde Anne Hathaway? Burton, you have gone to far this time….
