I did some changes to Johnny-Depp.org (more friendly URLs and some other things), but the weekend was too short and work starts again tomorrow. So some of the sites here at JDorg do not work as they should (especially the pagination in the goodies and galleries section) for one or two weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Tim Burton has chose the Antony House in Torpoint,
Cornwall as the outside set of Alice in Wonderland.
Alice in Wonderland will be due for release in 2010
and will be 3D.
The house, garden and woodland of the Antony House
will be closed to the publis from September 1st to
October 14th for filming.
Rebecca Miller, of the National Trust, said:
“We are absolutely over the moon that Antony has
been chosen as a location for Tim Burton’s new film
Alice in Wonderland.
“One of the reasons it was chosen was because it’s
a hidden gem – it’s one of the trust’s lesser known
properties and they felt this fitted in very well
with the feel of the film.”
Over 3,000 people turned out in Plymouth, Devon for
casting calls last month even though there were only
250 places to be filled. Australian newcomer Mia
Wasikowsk will play the part of Alice.

Please Take Time to Read Lizzy’s Wonderful New article entitled “The Awe of Jack” and Feel Free to Comment I think it is an AWEsome Read!
Here is an excerpt from it:
What is the allure that causes grown adults to don leather and felt costumes like six year olds ready to run out and yell trick or treat? A fanatical group of despots that travel round the country? Whether your opinion of this renewed love for pirating is one of scorn or folly, there is no denying its ever-growing presence, even in our ?Depp? world here. As Johnny has gone on to other roles, Jack still lingers on.

What is the allure that causes grown adults to don leather and felt costumes like six year olds ready to run out and yell trick or treat? A fanatical group of despots that travel round the country? Whether your opinion of this renewed love for pirating is one of scorn or folly, there is no denying its ever-growing presence, even in our ?Depp? world here. As Johnny has gone on to other roles, Jack still lingers on. This brings us back to the question; what ingredients cause this awe for a character that was invented in the genius of our Johnny? It may never be explained, but I personally can testify to its reality as I wonder; could Johnny have dreamed that Captain Jack Sparrow would become a beacon of light for young and old?
Searching high and low for a Jack to represent our charity event, we stumbled upon Brandon Hillock. A pirate to be sure, he jumped the Disneyland boat for a much more better ship. In the months planning the event, I became acquainted with more Jack Sparrows than I knew could exist in The Locker as I was introduced to the pirate world itself. Seeing these photos on the net, I laughed at the reactions I would view in the videos wondering, how could grown people fumble for cameras with such awe as the kiddies scurry up to touch the pirate?
Standing in the corridor awaiting our Jacks entrance, I whispered a small prayer under my breath that my own doing, bringing a Sparrow look alike would not turn into a traitorous Johnny event. Never visiting Disneyland or seeing one of the pirates in person I had no idea what to expect, thinking I may have a trip down the plank myself coming in the near future. As I turned toward the commotion in the park, my breath caught in my throat. I felt the same heart stopping warmth that overcame me when I saw him on the screen. This was not Johnny in anyway, shape or form, but there was Jack Sparrow larger than life! The people were immediately drawn to him and the man that had stepped into the changing room had given way to this infamous Captain who awes us all. I watched him with a cynical eye, trying to configure the fact that this was just an outfit on a simple man, but it was no use. The magic overtakes it all. How can you describe it? It may be the coat, hat, sword or pistol. It could be that infamous voice that our Jack had perfected to match, so much as closing my eyes, I could almost swear someone, somewhere, had the film itself playing. I may never sail on the Black Pearl, but this was as close as you could get.
Walking into the empty deserted theater to view the test run of the first Pirates film for the theater manager, I shut the door behind me.
