Walt Disney Pictures has released a brand new featurette for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland today, this time focusing on Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter. I feel ashamed that we haven’t been talking about this film more over the past few months. I do so enjoy a little bit of Tim Burton insanity in my day. As well, there’s nothing like seeing Johnny Depp go crazy.
As if once again channeling Keith Richards, only this time with a dash of Boy George, Depp illuminates a classic character with wit and charisma and all of those things that have made him one of our generation’s best. It is safe to assume — between you and me — that no matter how Burton’s Alice comes out, Depp will be entertaining. I’m not saying this as a result of my clear man-crush on the man, I simply think him to be talented.
But enough talk! Time to watch the featurette below. Alice in Wonderland also stars Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry and Crispin Glover. It makes its way down the rabbit hole and into theaters on March 5, 2010.
From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes an epic 3D fantasy adventure Alice in Wonderland, a magical and imaginative twist on some of the most beloved stories of all time. Johnny Depp stars as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl.
