Walt Disney has released the newest production photos from Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland! The flick stars a host of big names including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska as 19-year-old Alice, Matt Lucas -star of Little Britain - as both Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Helena Bonham Carter as Red Queen, Stephen Fry as The Cheshire Cat, stage and screen star Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, stage and screen star Alan Rickman as The caterpillar, and Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts.
As evidenced by the shots, which first appeared in USA Today, many of the actors are digitally enhanced for the film.
Explains producer Richard Zanuck in USA Today: "We finished shooting in December after only 40 days." What will happen now is that the live action will be merged with CG animation and motion-capture creatures, before being transferred into 3-D technology.
Alice in Wonderland is a fantasy adventure of Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she famously encountered as a child, reuniting her with her old friends - and foes.
The story is set 12 years after the original Lewis Carroll tale. Mia Wasikowska, the 19-year-old featured in the HBO series In Treatment and Defiance, plays Alice. The original start date was May 2008. Torpoint and Plymouth were the sets used for filming from September 1-October 14, and are set in the Victorian era. During this time, filming will take place in Antony House in Torpoint. 250 local extras were chosen in early August. Other production work resided in London. The film was originally to be released in 2009, but was pushed to March 5, 2010.
The film will be released in Disney Digital 3D.
