The Disney release of Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton has just picked up another cast member: Anne Hathaway. Hathaway will play the White Queen who is the benevolent ruler who has been banished by her evil sister the Red Queen, or the 'off with their heads' Queen as we have all grown to know her.
But wait, that's not all! The Red Queen has also been cast, and for any Burton film watcher this was only a matter of time until we heard Helena Bonham Carter had been cast as the evil ruler.
The movie, which stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, will use a combination of live action and performance-capture technology to tell the Lewis Carroll story.
