Cast and production staff on 'Alice in Wonderland' have promised film fans a ''completely new'' take on the classic story
Johnny Depp's 'Alice in Wonderland' has been written around a "completely new" storyline.
The 46-year-old actor - who stars alongside Anne Hathaway and Mia Wasikowska in the upcoming Tim Burton film - has revealed the 3-D reinterpretation of the Lewis Carroll book will contain plenty of new twists, plots and visuals and is not solely based on the original story.
He said: "It doesn't look like any 'Alice in Wonderland' that's ever been before. It's a completely new story - it's Alice returning back to Wonderland."
Movie producer Suzanne Todd is convinced movie buffs will be thrilled with how they have modernised the classic storylines, taken from the 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass' novels.
She said: "We took the combination of this classic story and new technology and pushed it into something like nothing you've ever seen before."
Anne was impressed with the complexity of the film, and detailed illustration of the stars, the animated characters and their settings.
She said in a video interview with Radar Online: "You're seeing so many different wild characters and great locations come together."
Ken Ralston, senior visual effects supervisor, added: "We're just trying to put you straight in the middle of this strange world and take you on this journey."
'Alice in Wonderland' was filmed using live action and motion capture techniques, and will be released in 3-D on March 5.
