Royal premiere for Burton's Alice in Wonderland
LONDON (Reuters) - British heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will attend the world premiere of U.S. director Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" on February 25 in London, the BBC reported on Wednesday.
They will be joined by cast members including Johnny Depp, a regular collaborator with Burton, and Anne Hathaway in the 3-D movie inspired by Lewis Carroll's classic tale of a girl's adventures in an absurd wonderland.
Burton's partner Helena Bonham Carter also appears in the film alongside Little Britain star Matt Lucas as Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Australia's Mia Wasikowska plays Alice.
The premiere, ahead of the film's U.S. and British theatrical release on March 5, will take place in London's Leicester Square and the funds it raises go to The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts.
