Back in November we posted an image that we thought was fanmade featuring a Johnny Depp Mad Hatter that looked a lot like someone’s grandmother. Now it’s looking like that image might have actually been, seriously, one of the concept images for the production. Weird how that happens. At least, judging by the first official pictures to come out of the production anyway.
Drop some acid, and check them out for yourself:
As you can see, Depp actually looks a lot like the original picture from back in November – crazy red hair, manic eyes and what look like Ron Weasley’s dress robes. Helena Bonham Carter (surprise! she’s in it!) looks like she’s got an incredibly sexy receding hair line, and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen has a very Gandalf the White look to her. I suppose that last one might have inevitable.
I can’t figure out for the life of me whether these images for Alice in Wonderland are creative or not. Here’s why: Tim Burton has a fantastic mind, but we’ve come to expect a certain style from him. So when he delivers on that style, it almost seems like he’s not trying even though he’s delivering exactly what we’d want from him.
Meanwhile, the full shots of the world he’s created do look absolutely gorgeous, so that’s a plus. Check out more of them below, courtesy of USA Today. Alice in Wonderland hits theaters on March 5, 2010.
What do you think? Are you psyched about the look of Wonderland?
