Tim Burton’s remake of classic book and movie Alice in Wonderland is set to hit theaters in Spring 2010, but the hype for this remake has been accumulating for many years now. Some information on the Alice in Wonderland remake, which will hit theaters in 3-D, has been released and after seeing the cast (so far) along with photos of their looks, I have to say that I am not surprised. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books and movies of all time and always has been and after seeing what Tim Burton did to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I’m very, very skeptical about what is to become of my beloved Alice in Wonderland.
The cast for the remake didn’t bring any big surprise either, besides perhaps the casting of Alice, who will be played by 19 year old unknown Mia Wasikowska from Australia. The Mad Hatter will be played by Johnny Depp, which I saw coming years ago, the Red Queen will be played by Helena Bonham Carter, again which I saw coming years ago. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter alike have been targeted by Tim Burton movie after movie and because of this, they have both become the standard “creepy” actors to fill any roll that calls for something of the macabre. Lastly, we officially know that Anne Hathaway will play the White Queen.
