Helena Bonham Carter Back For Through The Looking Glass
The Red Queen will return for the Alice sequel

Helena-Bonham-Carter-back-for-Through-The-Looking-Glass

With new director James Bobin in place and stars Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp back on board to reprise their roles as Alice and The Mad Hatter, the Alice In Wonderland sequel Through The Looking Glass is setting up deals with other cast members. According to Variety, Helena Bonham Carter will be back as the Red Queen.

The Queen, who had become a tyrant ruler in Wonderland before she was defeated and banished to the Outlands by the Hatter and Anne Hathaway’s White Queen, will return in some capacity, probably causing trouble again.

We don’t know exactly what she’ll be up to this time, as Disney is keeping a tight hold on the details of Linda Woolverton’s sequel script. And since Tim Burton’s first Alice borrowed from both the Wonderland tome and Through The Looking Glass, the plot is still a mystery. So far, none of the other cast members have made deals to return, but there’s always a chance the likes of Hathaway and Matt Lucas could be back. The release date is set, however, with Disney planting a flag on May 27, 2016.

Bonham Carter, who was last seen in The Lone Ranger, has Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet set for release on June 13, and will also be seen in the new Cinderella, which arrives on April 3 next year.
