Like me, you probably had no idea what to expect from Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland adaptation, especially considering the fact that it's part live action, part motion-capture and all in 3D. Well USA Today has revealed the first look at some of the motion-captured characters, as well as a few pieces of larger-than-life concept art, and based on all of this it would appear as if we're in for one helluva trip back down the rabbit hole.
The images you're probably most interested in are the character photos (see above) of the Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the White Queen (Anne Hathaway). I think the images look great, and Depp's Mad Hatter (which will not be live action, but motion-captured) reminds me of a deranged Pippi Longstocking mixed with a little Carrot Top -- with that giant red-orange afro protruding from the classic Mad Hatter hat. I love it!
Check out all the images over at USA Today and let us know what you think. Will Burton score a home run with his version of Alice in Wonderland?
