After a long search to fill Alice's shoes, Australian actress Mia Wasikowska is about to walk through the looking glass in Tim Burton's take on Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel Alice in Wonderland for Walt Disney Pictures.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is based on a script by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King) and will be shot with live-action and performance-capture footage to be presented in Disney Digital 3-D.

Principal photography will begin in November.
