Johnny Depp is the maddest of them all.

Disney released the first official photo of Depp as “Alice in Wonderland’s” The Mad Hatter, and he’s just as scary as when we saw him in the previous one-sheet images.

Trust director Tim Burton to make the twisted classic tale even more deliciously disturbing with his take — a grown-up Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the fantastical world she first stumbled upon as a young girl and reunites with her friends such as the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and -dum, the Dormouse, Chesire Cat and the Mad Hatter.

Hmm, are those knights out of focus in the background? It’s hard to tell. The action in Lewis Carroll’s original novels corresponded to the moves in a chess game, so many of the pieces (e.g. the White Queen) appear in the story.

The 3-D “Alice,” hits theaters on March 5, also stars Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover and Matt Lucas, in addition to the voice talents of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor.
