Bonham Carter and Hathaway Join Burton's Wonderland

Bonham Carter and Hathaway Join Burton's Wonderland


Well, I've been expecting this news ever since the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland project was announced: Helena Bonham Carter will star as the Red Queen in Burton's fantastical tale. The surprising part (but not in a bad way) is the other new addition to the cast: Anne Hathaway. The Hollywood Reporter includes these details:

Hathaway is playing the White Queen, a benevolent monarch who is deposed and banished by her sister, the Red Queen (Carter), who has an affinity for crying out, "Off with their heads!" The White Queen needs Alice to slay a creature known as the Bandersnatch.

Of course Helena Bonham Carter fits right into this project, and I think the Hathaway choice is something of a pleasant surprise. What do you think?

In addition to these two queens, we've got our Alice (Mia Wasikowska), a Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and one man to play both Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I wonder who's next?

erinsugar — It's true, the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts are two different characters and the Queen of Hearts is the one who yells "Off with their heads!" So, the text that I quoted from the Hollywood Reporter article seems like it's incorrect, however, in Tim Burton's film apparently the two characters (Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen) will be combined in the character of the Red Queen. It's confusing, I know!

Okay, yes I have seen the 1985 movies of Wonderland and Looking Glass, which is why I need someone to clarify this: There is a difference between the Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen, right? The Queeen of Hearts is the "off with their heads" queen from Alice in Wonderland, and the Red Queen is in Through the Looking Glass, with the White Queen, and I always thought they were two different queeens. Anyone know? Either way, love HBC and Hathaway for these roles.

I'm so excited about this movie! The Disney version is my all-time favorite movie, period. And of course, I loved Lewis Carrol's books.

Ugh, I adore Johnny, Tim and Helena with all my heart, but Anne Hathaway is just an actress that annoys me. I was hoping the last thing she'd do would be a Tim Burton film. I just pray she doesn't do a Clint Eastwood film now.I'll see this film anyway, but I can't stand watching Anne.

I think Anne Hathaway is a rather promising actress, so I hope she makes the most of this great opportunity.

I'm totally loving the casting choices! This should be a really good film. And Burton's version of Willy Wonka wasn't screwed up, at least not in my opinion, it was just truer to Roald Dahl's book.

I love the picture choise, really appropiate. I was expecting for Johnny Depp and Helena B.Carter to join, they usually work with Burton, but I'm looking forward to see Anne Hathaway as the white queen. I can't wait to see this movie and Mia Wasikowska is the perfect Alice, she has that "I'm innocent but I won't be corrupted easily" face.

I'm so psyched that Anne Hathaway, Helena B. Carter and Mia W. will all be in this! Mia was so good on In Treatment, and I like that they're incorporating the White Queen role. Nice.

For as long as I can remember, Alice in Wonderland has been my favorite movie (NOT the Disney version... or the 1985 version--sorry LiLPeaPod), favorite book, and overall favorite story. I am SO HAPPY to see how this movie is turning out....there isn't one decision I've heard of so far that I don't see being amazing.

Oh man. I'll say it again: I hope this one doesn't get screwed up (*cough* like Willy Wonka *cough*). Did anyone else see the 1985 TV movie version? I ask this all the time, but no one else has seen it.
