Are you ready for a trip down the rabbit hole? Tim Burton, Johnny Depp and Disney are adding a strange new chapter to the Lewis Carroll classic with their “Alice in Wonderland,” a film that presents a young woman who finds herself in the world of the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Red Queen and greeted as a returning visitor. We’re counting down to the film’s March 5 release with daily coverage.

The rabbit hole is closer than you think.

The Hollywood & Highland complex will be transformed into a Wonderland within the hour. Tim Burton and members of the “Alice in Wonderland” cast will host an event in the central courtyard at 5 p.m.

The event, sure to attract throngs of fans, will include musical performances, prizes, meet-and-greets with the actors and sneak peeks of the film. Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway and Crispin Glover are among the actors confirmed to be present.

In case you can’t make it to Hollywood for the trip, we’ve embedded a live video feed below so you can follow the action.
