With a cast of talentless clowns and cheap visual effects, James Bobin has outdone even Tim Burton in insulting the memory of Lewis Carroll.
Alice Through the Looking Glass reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
Directed by James Bobin (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted) from a script by the first film’s writer Linda Wolverton, Alice Through the Looking Glass opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
Returning Stars Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska feature on the stunning artwork, revealed at D23. James Bobin (The Muppets) directs the sequel to Tim Burton’s phenomenally successful 2010 fantasy, which is released next May.
Although it was reported back in April that Mark Rylance was up for the role, TheWrap is now bringing word that The Amazing Spider-Man star Rhys Ifans will play Zanik Hightopp, father to Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter, in the upcoming sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass.
