The initial concept of the character was born from a drawing created by Tim Burton when he was a teenager, in which he expressed his feelings and frustrations of not being able to communicate with people in his own neighborhood in Burbank. “I’ve always had a feeling that people need to be away from me. And I’ve never known why,” said the director.

Before Johnny Depp auditioned for the lead role, other possibilities were considered including Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Robert Downey Jr., William Hurt and Jim Carrey. Finally, Burton got to Depp and when he saw him he realized that he was perfect for the role.

The Legend of the Headless Horseman (1999)

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

This film features the performances of Mia Wasikowska in the role of Alice, Johnny Depp in the role of the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Crispin Glover. The story is an inspiration from the classic 1951 Disney animated film Alice in Wonderland.
