If you’re one of the lucky people who live in or near LA and you’re a fan of Alice in Wonderland, this is the event for you. In preparation for the March 5th release of Tim Burton’s latest film, Disney is throwing the ultimate party. It takes place tonight, and we’ve got the when, the where, and the how waiting for you below.
The Alice in Wonderland Ultimate Fan Event is a collaboration between Disney, MySpace, Hot Topic, KIIS-FM, and artists from the upcoming album Almost Alice. The event will feature four musical acts, a visit from Burton to introduce select members of the film’s cast, plus opportunities to win prizes, including special meet-and-greets and a sneak peek of actual film footage.
This will all take place today, February 19, 2010 in Hollywood, California at the Central Courtyard in the Hollywood & Highland Center (6800 Hollywood Boulevard). It will begin at 5 PM and be streamed simultaneously via myspace.com/wonderland. Besides Burton the talent expected to appear includes Anne Hathaway (The White Queen), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen), Crispin Glover (Knave of Hearts), Matt Lucas (Tweedles), Michael Sheen (voice of the White Rabbit) and more.
Mia Wasikowska will also be signing autographs after the performances for the first 250 customers who, beginning Feb. 9, purchase the special-edition “Alice in Wonderland” t-shirt at the Hollywood and Highland store and receive a wristband which gives them access to the autograph signing and the preferred viewing pit. These fans are encouraged to dress in their best Alice costume for a chance to be chosen to attend the sneak peak of footage from the film at the El Capitan Theater after the signing.
If you’re planning on attending tonight’s event remember the date and don’t be late.
