“There are not many people who could pull off the character of the Hatter that is that extreme, over the top and flamboyant, so Johnny is probably the only person that can pull that off and make it still believable and not absurd. That’s his brilliance, really,” Cohen said in a statement.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Time Burton and Disney’s Alice in Wonderland took the audience on a delightful journey across wonderland. And Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass is set three years after the events of Alice in Wonderland. Alice has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas.
