Yes, it is a Walt Disney Pictures film.
The film will be released in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D, as well as 2-D.
It's the same classic characters in a completely new story, it's not a remake, that's why it's different.
Alice, now 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following the white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen overthrew her sister. The creatures of Wonderland, ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them.
I personally love everything Tim Burton does and I'm looking forward to Alice in Wonderland being wonderfully strange and awesomely cool.
