There is no “Mad Hatter” in either of Lewis Carroll’s books. You can call him mad Hatter (with a lower-case M), but that’s rather judgmental. He is just the Hatter.

Looking forward to this. Love the previous movie, in spite of finding the story very creepy as a kid. As an adult, I guess what I like about the previous movie is that it embraces the creepiness, weirdness and darkness (to some extent). Hopefully this one will be even less “disney”.

Halfway through the first movie I found myself thinking “Does Tim Burton even LIKE Alice in Wonderland?”

At least this one is by a different director… might give it a shot.

It always disturbs me how much Depp’s Mad Hatter looks like Elijah Wood. I just can’t unsee it.

In any case, the term is hardly exclusive:

[quote]‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’[/quote]

ETA: Isn’t this already in the BBS welcome message?

Wonderland is a quite nasty place.
Everyone is petty, mean, cruel, aggressively damaged.

It’s Alice in Crackland.

And I first thought that they cast Madonna in the movie when I saw the picture.
