First Clip from Alice: Head Bonding with the Red Queen
02.20.10 by REELZ
The first clip from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland starts off very much like a scene from the Lewis Carroll classic that inspired it. A tiny Alice (Mia Wasikowska) takes a bite of cake and starts growing up and up all too quickly. The White Rabbit, voiced by Michael Sheen, stands by, offering advice on the proper portions, which alas has come a bit too late.
Still, it does provide her with an opportunity for some initial bonding with the mercurial Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), who apparently has a weakness for large heads. Both Alice and the Rabbit are very careful though not to mention her name, which apparently has a certain resonance in Wonderland after her earlier visit.
