Alice in Wonderland: Meet The Caterpillar

When the first images of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland hit the web a few months ago, fans of the famously quirky director were ecstatic. From the Red Queen’s heart-shaped head to the Mad Hatter’s crazy Carrot Top hair, the characters were dark and bright at the same time in a way that was quintessentially Burton. As awesome as the first images were, however, fans have still been waiting to see what a few more characters looked like, namely, the hookah-smoking Caterpillar voiced by Alan Rickman.

Luckily, we now have our first look at the Caterpillar thanks to /Film. The image (found below) comes from a magazine scan. While the image is somewhat grainy, I’m sure we won’t have to wait long before we see a better version (we’ll update you).┬áThe second picture shows the whole two-page scan.

After hearing Alan Rickman talk about his character, it’s good to finally see him. While the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter seem to get all the love from Alice in Wonderland fans, I’ve always held a personal fondness for the Caterpillar. I’m excited to see what Rickman can do with the character. If the grainy magazine scan doesn’t satiate your thirst for Alice in Wonderland though, don’t worry, we have one more thing to show. Yesterday, Disney released the latest poster for the film on the Mad Hatter’s official Facebook Fan Page. The poster doesn’t really show anything we haven’t already seen, but it’s still nice to look at. Check it out below.

Without a doubt, Alice in Wonderland is one of the most anticipated films of 2010. In retrospect, combining Burton’s unique visual aesthetic with Lewis Carroll’s classic story was a no-brainer. Adding a cast of well-liked and capable actors (including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and the aforementioned Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar) is just the cherry on top of a delectably psychadelic sundae.

What do you think of the first look at Alan Rickman’s Caterpillar and the latest poster? Is everyone as excited as I am to see this movie?

Alice in Wonderland hits theaters on March 5th, 2010.

  1. You know who I want to see? Crispin Glover. I’ve never read the book, I don’t remember the Knave of Hearts from the old cartoon, but I’m expecting something awesomenly creepy.

  2. I have to say,just looking at the picture above,there are going to be a lot of frightened kids that end up seeing this movie,because the Cheshire Cat looks really creepy.

  3. This movie is going to be outstanding. I’m beyond excited, and I quickly became a fan of “The Disloyal Subjects of the Mad Hatter” on Facebook to get all of the updates. They said if you click “Like” on the new poster on his page that he’ll post another poster once he gets 7,500 likes. Last I checked it was at about 5,000 so there’s still a little way to go, but it said he’s got a total of 3 new posters so… Get excited!!! Hopefully a new trailer soon too? I hope anyway.

  4. IMHO this film will SO not be for kids.


  5. I’m sure that Burton has made another of his masterpieces. And with actors like these (Jonhy Depp, Allen Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter) it can’t possible turnout to be a bad movie. Sure I’m a big fan of Rickman (he has an amazingly voice) but what about Stephen Fry. He does the voice of the Cheshire Cat and I’m dying to know how that is going to work out.

    I, for one, loves this movie already.
