It’s not news, I know, but Disney has sent us hi-res images of the portraits of the Alice in Wonderland characters from the Vanity Fair photo shoot. Although the Red Queen portrait differs from the ones previously released online as she’s not holding the Duchess’ baby/pig.
I did crop the images to eliminate some whitespace on the top and bottom in order to maximize the real estate. They’ve been added to the Alice in Wonderland image gallery below.
In addition, Disney has added some graphics to the original group of portraits as pictured to the left so I’ve added those images to the gallery as well.
You can click on any of the thumbnails to view a larger image or click on the PicLens link to start a slideshow.

Tyler Perry, the creator of the popular Medea character and multiple sit-coms has a lot of televisions. And it’s because of one television, not in-particular, that Perry overheard a small boy crying on the news because he was kicked out of a swimming pool because of the color of his skin.
According to the posting on his website, the private club’s pool had apparently been rented out for use by an organization called Creative Steps, founded by Althea Wright to benefit inner-city children who are primarily black and Hispanic. According to Perry, the President of the club initially responded by returning the money back to the organization saying, ‘We don’t want to change the complexion of our club.’
