johnnydepp200LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (X17online) - ABC Family has officially secured the network rights to air the blockbuster hit Alice in Wonderland.

The fantasy film shot into the record books this weekend with a whopping $116.3 million dollars at the box office. The Johnny Depp flick was the best opening for a nonsequel in the history of movie making.

Reports claim that the ABC deal could be worth at least $30 million. Movies are known to generate 10%-20% of their domestic gross when they air on television. Alice is expected to exceed $1 billion worldwide.

Tom Zappala, an ABC Cable Networks Group VP had this to say: "This Disney film has been one of the most anticipated releases of the year, and with its captivating sense of fun and imaginative spirit, it is a perfect fit for our millennial viewers."

The movie will premiere on ABC in 2012.
