Has Tim Burton ever made a film without Johnny Depp?
Images have been released of Burton's upcoming "Alice in Wonderland." Mia Wasikowska plays the title role - apparently she's best know for a role in HBO's "In Treatment," but I haven't a clue who she is.
I'm most excited that Alan Rickman is playing the caterpillar. Also Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts will be fantastic.
This story has a place in my heart not only because I am a girl and I grew up on Disney animated films, but because in 8th grade my choir performed this as a musical. I was a flower (I've never been one to hog the spotlight...), but a good friend of mine was the Queen of Hearts. And man did we have fun with that "Off with their heads!" line.

(And the answer to that seemingly rhetorical question above is Yes. "Pee Wee's Big Adventure," "Batman," "Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Beetlejuice" are among the very few not featuring Depp.)
Never miss a local story.
Above we've got Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen (or the Queen of Hearts) and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.
