Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter surprises guests at Disneyland


From somewhere in Wonderland, Johnny Depp brought a little surprise madness to some unsuspecting fans at Disneyland. Via the magic of an interactive display and a camera originating from a studio set somewhere, guests wandering through Disneyland’s esplanade encountered what looked like a movie poster for Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass only to be surprised when the poster came to life with none other than Johnny Depp portraying the Mad Hatter.

Did you see this in person? What would you have done?

Johnny Depp returns as the Mad Hatter in Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass opening in U.S. theaters on May 27th.

Movie Synopsis:

In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland to save her friend the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings a unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G.

Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out.
