Disney Developing Sequel to Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland'

It looks like a sequel to Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ is currently in the works over at Walt Disney Studios. The first film was a smash hit globally, bringing in over $1 billion worldwide, so it’s no surprise that Disney would look at returning to it. The studio has hired Linda Woolverton, who wrote the script for the first film, to return to pen the sequel. Plot details about the sequel are being kept under wraps, so we have no idea who will return, but I’d bet we’ll see Mia Wasikowska return as Alice, and with Depp’s great working relationship with Disney, he may return as the Mad Hatter. Tim Burton is the wild card though, because he’s only made one sequel in his career, ‘Batman Returns’, and has avoided sequels for the most part. But with rumors circulating that he’s toying with the idea of ‘Beetlejuice 2’, maybe there’s a chance we’ll see Burton return to the director’s chair as well. For now, there’s very little else we know, so keep an eye out, as we’ll post more when we know it.

The growing trend right now for Walt Disney Studios seems to be returning to many of their animated films and turning them into live action films. I like the unique storytelling it brings to the stories. With work right now on live action re-tellings of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in the form of ‘Maleficent’, a new take on Peter Pan in ‘Peter and the Starcatchers’, and the development of a new ‘Cinderella’ film by the studio, I wonder what else we could see the studio returning to?

Are you excited to return to the world of Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’? Or would you rather it be left alone and Disney wouldn’t do live action versions of their animated films? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company.

  1. Please let me know where I can get the Disney Addict sign ? You sent me a picture of it but never told mewhere I can get one . I have to have one !!! Thanks !

  2. I would love to see a sequel of Alice in Wonderland. Essentially they could take the story “Through the Looking Glass” (the other half of Alice in Wonderland) and make it the sequel I would hope that Tim Burton is at least brought on as a consultant on the project because the first film had such a Burton-esk style in every aspect. As to Peter and the Starcatchers, this is actually a book written by Ridley Pearson, who has also written “The Kingdom Keepers”. I would love to see his books turned into films.
