Disney's Movie Plans

Disney hosted an event yesterday during which they teased the audience with tidbits of their movie plans for the next few years. It looks like Mickey has a lot of goodies up his sleeve or, since he doesn't usually wear sleeves or shirts for that matter, down his glove. There was an announcement of a Tim Burton adaptation of "Alice In Wonderland" starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. Depp will also play Tonto in a Lone Ranger project and revise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for another Pirates movie. Other sequels include a third National Treasure movie and Cars 2.

Of all the sequel news, what really got the audience going was the trailer for Tron 2! The original Tron featured some of the most cutting edge special effects of the 80's so you can just imagine what they should be able to do with this film now.
