On Monday, we shared some great new pictures from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. The pictures gave us our first look at Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, as well as Anne Hathaway as the White Queen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen – they also showed Burton’s decidedly creepy vision for the classic story.
Today, Disney released the official website for Alice In Wonderland and, well, compared to the pictures, it’s kind of a let down.Right now, all there is the title treatment (seen above) and the Mad Hatter’s Hat (seen below). Of course, there’s a place to sign up for e-mail updates, so I’m willing to bet that the site will become more interactive in time. Being the Tim Burton fan that I am, I’ve signed up for updates and will share them as they come out.
In addition to the official website, pop culture news site CC2K has released a review of the film’s screenplay by Linda Woolverton. Without giving too much away, the script review confirms our earlier report that Burton’s Alice will not be a straight adaptation, but rather a sequel of sorts featuring Alice as a 17-year old who visited Wonderland as a child, but has since forgotten her adventures. For the full review, which is chock full of spoilers, check here.
Alice In Wonderland is currently in post-production and is scheduled to hit theaters and 3D IMAX on March 5, 2010.
