Johnny Depp Dons Mad Hatter Getup to Surprise Fans at Disneyland

Johnny Depp surprised fans at Disneyland this week by interacting with them digitally as his "Alice Through the Looking Glass" character, the Mad Hatter.

In a two-minute promotional video for the upcoming Disney film, Depp, dressed as the Mad Hatter, smiles, waves, and interacts with fans, asking people their names and telling them to hop and spin. At one point he sneezes and bubbles appear over the billboard: "Did I hit you? Well it's only Hatter snot, isn't it?"

The video posted Wednesday to YouTube had about a million views as of  Friday morning.

"I would, like, die right now if that was Johnny Depp," one fan at the Anaheim, California, theme park says in the video.

The sequel to Disney's 2010 "Alice in Wonderland," opening May 27, centers on Depp's character, Entertainment Weekly noted. In the film, Alice, played by Mia Wasikowska, must travel back in time to save the Mad Hatter.

While promoting the movie Sunday, Depp mocked a video he made with wife Amber Heard in which the couple apologized somberly for bringing their dogs to Australia without proper documentation, Reuters reported.

"I would like to apologize for not smuggling my dogs into England because it would have been a bad thing to do," Depp deadpanned during the appearance

Last month an Australian court sentenced Heard to a one-month good behavior bond for providing a false immigration document when the couple brought their Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, to Australia last year. Prosecutors dropped the more serious charges that could have led to jail time.

In London for a screening of "Alice Through the Looking Glass" on Wednesday, Depp also shared his dire outlook for the country if Donald Trump is elected president.

"If Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, in a historical way it is kind of exciting, because we will see the actual last president of the United States. It just won’t work after that," Depp told United Kingdom-based Channel 5 News, according to The Huffington Post.

Earlier this year, Depp delighted fans with his portrayal of Donald Trump in a 50-minute Funny or Die parody, "Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie." Funny or Die will submit the film for Emmy consideration, Variety reported. Released online on Feb. 10, the parody mocks the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's 1988 autobiography, “The Art of the Deal.”
