Earlier this week, the first (terrifying) photos from Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland debuted online. Now Slashfilm have the high resolution versions to savor, and email to your worst/most sensitive enemies.
The images are, in a word, spectacular. In my opinion, Burton has been spinning his wheels for the greater part of this decade, producing great set design as opposed to great films. However, if these demented candy-cane portraits are any indication, perhaps we will be looking at a Beetlegeuse-esque classic!
The above portraits feature Aussie Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as The Mad (No, Really Mad) Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. Please click on the images to get your hi-res on.
In related news, a leaked script of the film has indicated that Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is in fact a sequel to the beloved Lewis Carroll story. In the Linda Woolverton-penned script, Alice is now 17 and engaged to a suitor. The White Rabbit re-enters her life and brings her back down the rabbit hole to help the creatures of Wonderland. However, Alice cannot remember a thing from her first trip. Can she help them?
Alice in Wonderland will be released March 2010 (in 3D no less)!
Discuss: Does Burton have another classic in him? Has he lost it? Did he ever have it?
