Even Disney was surprised when its Tim Burton directed, live-action version of Alice In Wonderland broke a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. The studio quickly started thinking about a sequel, but it’s only now that it’s moving towards release – with Muppet Movie helmer James Bobin stepping in for Burton.
A couple of posters have now arrived for the movie, featuring the return of Mia Wasikowska’s Alice and Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter.
Indeed, most of the original cast is returning, including Anne Hathaway, Helen Bonham Carter, Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry. The biggest edition is Sacha Baron Cohen as the evil Lord Of Time, who has a plan to turn Wonderland into a barren waste, which only Alice can stop.
The film is due out May 2016.
