Here is Disney’s *official* Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland teaser trailer. That is a link to the facebook fan page where the trailer was released, but it is in HD and the quality is so much better than the previously leaked trailers. Go see! I will update this page when an embeddable video is released. The Disney Pictures site for the movie has not been updated as of this posting.

To say I cannot wait for this very important date is an understatement!!! 😀

I have always been a huge Burton fan, from the very first moment I saw his short film “Vincent” at an Animation Fest in Boston in the late 80’s. I still remember the excitement surrounding The Nightmare Before Christmas when it came out and LOVED seeing the miniatures and maquettes used in the film at the former Disney-MGM Studios. Edward Scissorhands never fails to make me cry. And I haven’t even mentioned his other great works such as Big Fish, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow or his gorgeous take on Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street!

In addition, I have had a lifelong obsession love of Alice in Wonderland. She is so easy to identify with, personally – who hasn’t felt completely overwhelmed and as if you were in another world at one point or another? There are so many wise lessons shared within Alice’s world, from the wondrous personalities like the Cheshire Cat, The Caterpillar and The Mad Hatter, to name but a few. So when I heard Mr. Burton was taking on this role with his usual gang of amazing actors, I began counting down the days. This trailer definitely does not disappoint and will keep me on the edge of my laptop until the film’s release date.

Here is the studio’s release concerning the film:

Johnny Depp stars as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat and, of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. The all-star cast also includes Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Crispin Glover.

Capturing the wonder of Lewis Carroll’s beloved Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871) with stunning, avant-garde visuals and the most charismatic characters in literary history, Alice In Wonderland comes to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D on March 5, 2010.
