"If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does..."

Yes I know I said I wasn't going to do this to myself but I really just couldn't help it. Today I was happily tweeting about how fabulous it is that it's rainy again today (that was pure sarcasm since most of you don't know me personally you should know that, that is all I talk in). I happened to glance over and see that one of the main searches is Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and that's all it took... before you know I was drooling over the new artist renderings of the set design and Walt Disney's first official photos of some of the cast. I also found out that the plot of the movie actually makes it somewhat of a sequel? Now if you don't want to know anything then please do not read ahead, I know it's one thing for me to spoil something for myself but I don't want to feel guilty about doing it to someone else. Of course I could've just not posted anything but what's the fun in that??

The film begins at a party where Alice, now 17, finds out that she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty high society types. She makes a run for it, and of course, ends up following a white rabbit down a hole, back to Wonderland — a place where she visited a decade prior. The White Rabbit is convinced that he has the right girl but Alice doesn’t remember her past visit to Wonderland. The creatures of Wonderland are ready to revolt and are hoping/waiting for Alice to help them, but will she? Can she?

Michael Sheen - the White Rabbit

Matt Lucas - the egg-shaped Tweedledee and Tweedledum

Johnny Depp - as the fabulously freaky Mad Hatter

Helena Bona Carter - as the "Off With Their Heads" Red Queen

Anne Hathaway - as the angelic White Queen

We finished shooting in December after only 40 days," Zanuck says. Now the live action is being merged with CG animation and motion-capture creatures, and then transferred into
"The Red Queen has “a moat filled with bobbing noggins”, The White Queen is beautiful but eccentric, and floats around instead of walking, and Depp employs an accent for the Hatter that producer Richard Zanuck can only describe as “indescribable”."

Oh I just love it all! I am always just in awe of everything Tim Burton but I just can't wait for this one because of my obsession of Alice in Wonderland. Hopefully this one will not disappoint but judging from everything i've seen so far it doesn't seem like I have to worry.

That is so awesome that the plot line followers her years we know who the actress is who plays Alice? Johnny Depp looks awesome as does Anne Hathaway. Can't wait - when does it come out?
