Tim Burton hasn’t returned to the director’s chair, but serves as a producer on the sequel, which is instead directed by Flight Of The Conchords co-creator James Bobin. Alice In Wonderland screenwriter once again provides the script.
Meanwhile, new additions to the cast include Spectre star Andrew Scott, former Downton Abbey actor Ed Speleers and Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Time personified.
Alice Through The Looking Glass, based on Lewis Carroll’s own sequel to Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass, opens in cinemas on May 27, 2016.
