Alice Through the Looking Glass

Just last week, the first teaser trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass arrived, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. It’s quite an early tease for the film that won’t arrive until next summer, and now a batch of posters featuring some of the prominent Wonderland characters and one new face have surfaced.

Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter all get their own posters, reprising their characters from the first film. In addition, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays a part-human, part-clock manifestation of Time gets his own poster as well, with all of the character surrounded by trippy, melting clocks. Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer

At this point Disney has more live-action fairy tales in various stages of development than we can count, but the movie that kicked off that whole craze to begin with was 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. The Tim Burton-directed adventure racked up more than $1 billion worldwide, making a sequel more or less inevitable, and now that sequel is almost here.

James Bobin (The Muppets) replaces Burton in the director’s chair this time around, but the original cast is back including Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. There are some new characters, too, including Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s dad and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time himself. Watch the Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer after the jump. Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass D23

Alice Through the Looking Glass acts as both sequel and prequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film, with James Bobin jumping in as director from a script written by Linda Woolverton. (Burton is still on as producer.) While story details have been thin so far, today’s D23 live-action panel revealed that the big tipping point is a problem with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), which leads Alice (Mia Wasikowska) on a journey through time, aided by Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), “a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.” Read More »

Rhys Ifans Dr Connors

With Disney’s Maleficent opening in theaters Friday, it’s the perfect time to remember that a new trend will continue. The trend: Disney reimagining its classic animated films in live action. Cinderella is out next year and then the one that started the revamp pattern, Alice in Wonderland, will get its sequelAlice in Wonderland 2 will be called something like Alice: Through the Looking Glass. James Bobin (The Muppets) is directing and original stars Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska will return.

Rumors have run rampant that Sacha Baron Cohen could be playing a role and, apparently, they’re true. He’s also being joined by Rhys Ifans, who’ll be playing the father of Depp’s Mad Hatter. Read More »

James Bobin

Even if you take away his two Muppet movies, writer/director James Bobin is a guy you want to talk to. He helped shape Sacha Baron Cohen’s legendary Da Ali G Show and the HBO show Flight of the Conchords, and is helming the next Disney Alice in Wonderland film, Alice Through the Looking Glass. He also helped bring The Muppets back to the big screen in the 2012 hit and co-wrote and directed this week’s hilarious sequel, Muppets Most Wanted. This James Bobin fellow has it going pretty well.

We were lucky enough to speak to Bobin and discussed a myriad of topics. In addition to an Alice tease, we discussed the self-referential nature of Muppets Most Wanted, having to change elements of the story when songs have already been finished, the canon of the Muppets, the rules for shooting and working with the Muppets, action sequences, dance and much more. If you’re a fan of the Muppets, or filmmaking in general, I think there’s a lot to learn here. Read our full interview below. Read More »
