Disney’s planned sequel to Alice In Wonderland is finally coming together. Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska are already set to return, with Sacha Baron Cohen also joining the team. Now another returnee has signed up as Helena Bonham Carter is coming back for Through the Looking Glass, according to Variety.
James Bobin, who’s hitting cinemas imminently with Muppets Most Wanted, will direct, with Joe Roth returning to produce. No details have been released about the plot, although like Tim Burton’s movie, it’s not likely to closely Lewis Carroll’s original story and will instead follow Alice long after her first trips to Wonderland.
The first movie grossed over a billion dollars, so it’s no surprise Disney wants a sequel, even if it has taken them quite a long time to get it off the ground. The film should shoot later this year.
