    When I first heard about this movie, "my initial response was there you go with another cartoon, hope they do not spoil it with another remake". However, my perception changed tremendously upon hearing that the respectable duo of Tim Burton - Johnny Depp will be involved inside the movie.

    If you have not heard of Tim Burton, where on earth have you been? Tim Burton is the man that had brought you productions of dark stories like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Bettlejuice, Batman, Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    And who does not know Captain Jack Sparrow himself?

    USA Today and Empire Online had published some gorgeous new images from Tim Burton's Alice In The wonderland. The art conceptual pictures can be available in the USA Today website, and I believed it would be another creative presentation that combines live action, stop motion and animation with 3D-isation to be installed.

    If you are familiar with this children literature, you will be aware that this movie is of course based on 1865 Lewis Carrol's Alice In The Wonderland - a story about a little girl, Alice on her adventure into a fantasy land while meeting up with various animal characters and bumps into the Kingdom of the Playing Cards. Further, the movie also took inspiration from the sequel from 1871's Through The Looking Glass with several characters were also slotted for the movie version.

    If you think this is a direct translation from the books, well think again. "This altered movie will takes place ten years after Alice's first encounter into the Wonderland of which she has no remembered anything. Fleeing from a society party, she stumbles back down the rabbit hole and is co-opted by the creatures into a revolution against the crimson monarch." - Empire Online.

    Here's some exclusive early shots from Disney Pictures.

    Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter

    Helena Bonham Carter as Red queen. Rumours has that this version of Red Queen will be an amalgamation of Queen of Hearts (from the first book, whom fond of crying "Off With Their Heads!") and the Red Queen (from the second book, whom owns a moat full of bobbing skulls)
