BREAKING NEWS–First picture of Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND?

For your viewing pleasure, here’s the first photo of Johnny Depp in costume as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, which is currently filming. We haven’t yet been able to verify the picture’s authenticity from an official Disney or Burton source, but it certainly looks like a true Burton vision–pale skin, wild hair (carrot red, this time), fabulous costume, and deeply shadowed eyes. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you . . . the Mad Hatter’s eyes are not Johnny Depp’s true chocolate brown, but green.

The Zone thanks Sandsgirl for sharing the Mad Hatter picture with us–she found it on a MySpace page–and Wicked Wench at, who is the original source of this picture. Thanks also to Lizzy at for letting us know some background on this fascinating image; this certainly seems to be the real deal! You can read a lively discussion about the Mad Hatter’s look on the Zone’s Pit forum. –Part-Time Poet
