*The leaked trailer on IGN was pulled.
The whimsical first teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has officially released, courtesy of Disney. We finally get a chance to see the Mad Hatter in action played by master Burton actor, Mr. Johnny Depp. The rest of the cast (seen or unseen) includes Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar, Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Christopher Lee as the Jabberwock, Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts and Matt Lucas as both Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
For those of you who haven’t been following our Alice in Wonderland coverage:
Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is actually a sequel to the original story we are used to, and follows now 17 year old Alice as she escapes from a snooty party and follows a white rabbit down a hole, back to Wonderland. The White Rabbit is convinced that he has the right girl, the one who had visited the magical land ten years prior. But Alice doesn’t remember her past visit to Wonderland. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen overthrew her sister. The creatures of Wonderland, ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them.
Alice in Wonderland hits theaters on March 5, 2010.
