Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, will be released to IMAX theatres simultaneously with the film’s wide release on March 5, 2010.
According to IMAX, the special IMAX 3D release will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with IMAX DMR (Digital Re-Mastering) technology. This is the third film confirmed out of the five-film agreement between IMAX and Disney, which was announced on November 19, 2008.
Last week, IMAX released Monsters vs. Aliens, the first 3D film from DreamWorks Animation SKG, simultaneously in digital 3D and conventional 2D formats at IMAX theatres.
“If ever there was a film that cried out to be presented in Disney Digital 3D and the premium IMAX 3D format, Tim Burton’s fantastic interpretation of Alice in Wonderland is that film,” says Mark Zoradi, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group.
Filmmaker Tim Burton, says IMAX, will put his distinctive touch on the combination live-action and performance capture version of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale “Alice in Wonderland.” The all-star cast includes Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Alan Rickman, and Mia Wasikowska.
