Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland is one of the director’s weakest efforts, but it’s also by far his highest grossing. The movie made over $1 billion worldwide at the box office, and I’m surprised it’s taken so long for a sequel to start moving into production. But four years later, production has begun on Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass with James Bobin (The Muppets) in the director’s chair and the original actors returning along with new additions to both the live-action and the voice cast. Plot details are scarce, but the story will “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”
Hit the jump for the press release, which includes the full cast and who they’re playing as well as the production’s key contributors behind the camera. Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass opens May 27, 2016.
