Walt Disney Pictures have this week announced details on the production and narrative of their upcoming fantasy film Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass. A loose adaptation of Lewis Carroll's 1871 children's novel Through the Looking Glass, the long-awaited sequel to 2010's Alice In Wonderland will see Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter reprise their roles as Alice, the Mad Hatter, the White Queen and the Red Queen respectively.
The star talent doesn't end there by any stretch of the imagination, however. Detailing the mighty cast ensemble in their first official press release for Looking Glass, the studio reveal that Sacha Baron Cohen (Les Miserables; The Dictator) will portray Time in the follow-up, whilst Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1) will play the Mad Hatter's father, Ed Speelers (Eragon) will play James Harcourt and Toby Jones (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire; Doctor Who ("Amy's Choice")) will voice the enigmatic Wilkins. As if all of this info weren't enough to raise our anticipation considerably for an otherwise needless successor to a mediocre motion picture, we've even been graced with the first (admittedly brief) plot synopsis too: "[Through the Looking Glass] revisits Lewis Carroll's beloved stories with an all-new tale that travels back to Underland - and back in Time." Stay tuned to On-Screen for more details on Through the Looking Glass' production schedule and box office potential as they land on the interwebs!
Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass will leap through the rabbit hole and onto the big-screen in cinemas worldwide on May 27th, 2016.
