We at Inside The Magic are super-stoked for the next chapter in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland live-action film saga, and we were lucky enough to check out a special Q&A with star Johnny Depp and director James Bobin along with fellow fans via the movie’s official Facebook page. By the sound of it, Alice Through the Looking Glass is shaping up to be one heck of a ride!
Questions in the interview ranged from interesting to downright ridiculous — if he were any sandwich, he would be a bologna sandwich. Other answers were more complex, like the moments he lives for in movies.
“My favorite moment in any film is when the bottom drops out, when there’s confusion, when there’s the opportunity for chance, which is far more interesting than just reading your lines,” said Depp.
He also said that his favorite song is French: Le Mer by Charles Trenet. He also noted that he likes the English cover Bobby Darin did, called Beyond the Sea. One of the more interesting questions involved Depp recognizing how his dreams inform his character choices.
“I’ve had dreams about a majority of (my roles). I’ve (seen things) pop up in dreams that I’ve applied to the character,” Depp said.
