In 2010, Disney released a Tim Burton-directed live-action film of Lewis Carroll's work Alice in Wonderland. The second installment of the series won't be released until May of next year, but fans of the dark fantasy film are still eager to venture back into the rabbit hole.
The D23 Expo last week showed off all that Disney has in store for us in the near future, which included our first look at Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska in two teaser posters. Check out the surrealist and imaginative posters below:
With a new director, James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted, Muppets), at the helm of the project, production this time around took a much more practical take than the first, which was mostly filmed on a green screen.
When talking to ComingSoon.net, star Mia Wasikowska discussed the different approach Bobin had than Burton stating:
Oh he’s great, he has a very different… the emotion of the characters is very important to him, he sort of pushed us in a different way, which was great. Also we had a lot more sets on this one so that was really fun to have more interactive sets. The first “Alice” was 90% green screen so it was quite fun to be part of a world.
Alongside Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska, Alice Through the Looking Glass brings back familiar actors like Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Paul Whitehouse, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor, and Matt Lucas as well as some new faces such as Rhys Ifans, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Toby Jones.
Alice Through the Looking Glass will be released on May 27, 2016.
