Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” the sequel to the very successful “Alice in Wonderland,” reunites the original cast to…
Back in 2010, “Alice in Wonderland” was a fanciful wonder on screen and at the box office for Disney pulling in more than one billion dollars. In fact, that might be considered the last time Johnny Depp had a real box office blockbuster. Depp is returning to play the Mad Hatter in “Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.” So let’s all hope for a return to 2010 when it comes to his star power at the box office.
The sequel will revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time. “Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass” is produced by the returning team of Joe Roth, Jennifer Todd, Suzanne Todd, and Tim Burton. John G. Scotti is the executive producer; Linda Woolverton (“Maleficent,” “Alice In Wonderland,”) penned the screenplay.
The gang, as they say, has been brought back together for the cast:
- Johnny Depp (“Pirates of the Caribbean” films, “Alice In Wonderland,”) returns to the big screen as the Mad Hatter—Hatter Tarrant Hightopp.
- Anne Hathaway (“Les Misérables,” “Alice In Wonderland,”) portrays the White Queen—Mirana.
- Mia Wasikowska (“Jane Eyre” and “Alice In Wonderland”) once again appears as Alice Kingsleigh, who’s on a quest to help the Mad Hatter.
- Helena Bonham Carter ( “Les Misérables,” “Alice In Wonderland”) returns as the Red Queen—Iracebeth.
- Rhys Ifans (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I,” “The Amazing Spider-Man”) fills the shoes of Zanik Hightopp, the Mad Hatter’s father.
- Matt Lucas (“Alice In Wonderland”) returns to the revelry in a dual role as Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
- Ed Speleers (TV’s “Downton Abbey,” “Eragon”) portrays James Harcourt in the film.
- And Sacha Baron Cohen (“Hugo,” “Les Misérables”) was called on to bring Time to the big screen.
“Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass” also boasts an extraordinary voice cast:
