Disney plans sequel to Alice In Wonderland

Back down the rabbit hole

Having scored over $1 billion at the global box office following its release back in 2010, it should come as little surprise that Disney has finally given the greenlight to a sequel to Alice In Wonderland.

Despite failing to wow critics with its fairly pedestrian storytelling and curiously flat 3D, Tim Burton’s film was a global smash nonetheless, and that’s more than enough to convince Disney of the merits of another go-around.

Whether Burton will be involved or not remains to be seen, but the script is currently being penned by Linda Woolverton, who was responsible for both The Lion King and Beauty And The Beast.

The first film was a fairly loose adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s source material, so we wouldn’t expect this one to stick to Alice Through The Looking Glass, Carroll’s own follow-up to the original story.

If Burton doesn’t decide to return, they’ll have to look long and hard to find somebody with as keen an eye for the visual as their original director, given that the design aesthetic was the first film’s strongest suit. No small task for the House of Mouse…

Would you be interested in a sequel, or did the first film leave you cold? Tell us, below!

      Please God NO, the first one was s**t and if Burton has anything to do with this project you can guarantee this one will be s**t too.

      very excited about this news!! hope they a invest a truckload of money into this and come up a even disastrous sequel. and what i really want is that no one, not even a single person should watch it at the theaters! when the studios and producers will lose a lot of money only then will they realize that they have a responsibility towards there audiences! the way they handled the pirates franchise, truly disgusted!

      The only reason this grossed 1 billion is because it was released right after Avatar's Imax run ended.

      I for one like the movie. Some parts could of been better but I think this movie should not get a sequel. It should just be left as this one movie.

      while I havent read all of the second book, I am pretty sure the Jabberwocky was in Alice through the looking glass and not Alice and Wonderland.....what i remember while watching this dreadful film was that it seemed more loosely based on through the looking glass than in Wonderland.........

      Now a film version of America McGee's "Alice" followed by a "Madness Returns" sequel would be an Alice project worth watching... though it would require the director, the d.o.p. and the entire design team to take copious amounts of LSD while filming.
