If you want to be the Mad Hatter, be prepared with trivia about the character and movie:
While everybody knows the character as the Mad Hatter, he is never referred to by that name in Lewis Carroll’s novels.
While the story is usually called Alice in Wonderland, the characters and plot are taken from two Carroll stories: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
Johnny Depp tried to bring out a more human side in his portrayal of the character, instead of just being “mad”. He and Tim Burton worked hard to give the Mad Hatter a lot of depth. The orange hair was meant to be a reference to mercury poisoning, something from which many hat makers used to suffer.
This was the seventh time Burton was a director for Depp’s work.
Amanda Seyfried and Lindsay Lohan were among those who did not get the role of Alice, which instead went to Mia Wasikowska.
All of the scenes with Anne Hathaway, who played the White Queen, were shot within two weeks.
