Slash Film pointed us to a (German?) site that has exclusive pictures of Tim Burton's upcoming re-imagining of Alice In Wonderland. The pictures are pretty interesting in that they paint - from early concept to finished reality - a picture of how filmmakers are realizing the crazy characters of Wonderland.

The more I see, the more I'm getting excited for Tim Burton's take on Wonderland. There's so much more to see, so to check out the full gallery go HERE.
In case you're not up on the story: In this sequel of sorts, Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now a teenager, returns to Wonderland with no memory of her prior visit. The evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) has conquered the land, leaving the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the other mad inhabitants of Wonderland to rally behind their long-lost Alice.
Alice In Wonderland hits theaters (in 3D) on March 5, 2010.
