Though it leaked recently to many anxious eyes, the first teaser trailer for Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland has finally been released online, and it is exactly what you would expect of a Burton Wonderland. The trailer was put up via The Disloyal Subjects of the Mad Hatter Facebook page, where you can go to watch the massive HD versions of the trailer, as well as in Quicktime and even for your iPod.
The movie is more of a sequel than an adaptation of Lewis Carroll‘s classic Through the Looking Glass. It picks up ten years later when Alice is seventeen years old and retains no recollection of her first adventure in Wonderland. She escapes from a boring upscale party and follows a white rabbit to a mysterious hole which transports her back and sees her becoming the last hope in the fight against the Red Queen.
The movie stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice, with a huge supporting cast including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Alan Rickman as the The Caterpillar, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, among many others.

One big thing for me in all of this was the look of Depp as the Hatter. After seeing this, while I still dislike it overall, I can happily say that I feel better about it. I guess I always just imagine him as a regular-looking person who just happens to be a little…mad; but it’s assumed that this is more faithful to the literary description, no? It appears that it’s going to work out just fine, and aside from all that, the movie looks like a wild ride.
Alice in Wonderland will be released on March 5, 2010.
