Alice, now 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following the white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen overthrew her sister. The creatures of Wonderland, ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them.
Of course she'll encounter the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen, and the other absurd and amazing characters from Lewis Carroll's books...and just like any other Tim Burton film, you'll find Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter.
Helena Bonham-Carter as the Red Queen
Here are some shots just released as promos for the film tentatively scheduled to be in theatres in March 2010.
