A couple of weeks ago we got our first proper look at most of the characters from Tim Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland. It finally confirmed Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter look, as well as revealing Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, Anna Hathaway as The White Queen and Matt Lucas as Tweedledee & Tweedledum. Any views we’ve gotten of the titular Alice so far haven’t been very close-up.
Today we have three new character shots of The Mad Hatter, The Red Queen and, that’s right, Alice herself (being played by newcomer Mia Wasikowska). The images were originally scanned from Vanity Fair magazine and put onto Planet Disney, but thanks to the work of the good folks at /Film, we have cleaned up versions of the photos. Check out the three of them below:

Even though these Alice in Wonderland images don’t give us a look at any new characters (wonder when we’ll see Stephen Fry as The Cheshire Cat, Crispin Glover as The Knave of Hearts or Alan Rickman as The Caterpillar?), it still gives us more of a look. As you can see, Alice is holding the famous White Rabbit that leads her down the hole, and as a little FYI, the rabbit is played (presumably voiced) by Michael Sheen (soon to be seen in The Twilight Saga: New Moon) – just one of the many things I’m looking forward to seeing as part of Burton’s vision.
Burton’s latest film is looking better and better all the time, in my eyes.
What do you think of these latest character shots for Alice in Wonderland? Are you looking forward to Tim Burton’s take on the classic fantasy tale?
Alice in Wonderland is slated for a release on March 5th in the US, and on March 12th in the UK, both in 2010.
