Down the Rabbit Hole: ALICE IN WONDERLAND 2 Screenplay in the Works

Walt Disney Pictures has secured writer Linda Woolverton to pen Alice in Wonderland 2. This will be the sequel to director Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland released in 2010 starring Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter, which banked over a billion dollars at the box office worldwide.

At this early stage of the creative process it’s not certain whether Tim Burton will be returning to the directors chair or whether Johnny Depp and other cast members will be reprising their roles. It would be great to see these actors in Wonderland again, perhaps with a few new characters to add to the surrealism.

As with any screen adaptation of a well known literary work, it will be interesting to see if Linda Woolverton pulls inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s book sequel “Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There” or if she will devise some slightly new context and storyline. Carroll’s writing will surely provide her with rich source material to create another box office smash!

My passion for film knows no bounds! My favourite genres of film are character driven dramas, comedies, and films that change the way you view the world and your place in it. Ultimately, a great film comes down to the story and how much the audience empathises with the characters' humanity.
