Briefly: Back in November, it was reported that Disney would be releasing the sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in theaters in May of 2016. Both Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp will be reprising their roles as Alice and The Mad Hatter, respectively. Now it’s been reported that Borat and Hugo star Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks with Disney to appear as a villain in the sequel, which is now titled Through the Looking Glass.
Details on his character aren’t known as of yet, but I’m sure the always theatrical Cohen will fit into the zany cinematic world that was already established by Tim Burton and co. nearly four years ago. The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted director James Bobin will be directing Through the Looking Glass, which will arrive in theaters on May 27th, 2016.
