The special Hot Topic exclusive edition of Almost Alice, music inspired by Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is now available for pre-order at a special price. Available March 2, the Hot Topic edition includes exclusive bonus tracks from Never Shout Never and Family Force Five.
In this first clip, titled Clothe This Girl, Alice, after returning to the Underland, encounters the Red Queen. Already virtually unrecognizable as the little girl she was ten years prior, Alice learns that just a little upelkuchen goes a long way as she increases herself to the size of a giant. Needless to say, Alice’s clothes don’t manage to grow with her so when a naked giant suddenly appears behind some bushes, it’s sure to catch the Queen’s eye.

From Walt Disney Studios UK, we get out first look at the new music video for the end title track for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, ‘Alice (Underground)’ by Avril Lavigne. While featuring mostly Avril and her performance in the Underland, the video also features some glimpses (mostly previously released) of the film which will be released domestically on March 5.
With Tim Burton’s vision of Alice in Wonderland just on the horizon, there are naturally dozens of new and wonderful licensed toys and collectibles inspired by the film headed our way. Here’s just a taste of some of the amazing product we encountered at the International Toy Fair this year that we can all look forward to seeing in 2010.
From Tonner,we have a full line of limited edition dolls including this gorgeous likeness of Mia Wasikowska as Alice. Tonner also has Iracebeth, the Red Queen, and Mirana, the White Queen, on display. While we were unable to take photos as the final product is awaiting approval, we can certainly say they were all very impressive as one would expect from a company like Tonner. Not on display at the show is Tonner’s Mad Hatter, but we were given a sneak peek at the current incarnation and he’s naturally equally as impressive in his detail. Pending the dolls’ final approvals, we can expect to see them sometime in spring.
