Disney fans have much to look forward to in terms of live adaptations in the coming years as the legendary production company has recently announced both a live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book and an all-new sequel to 2010's Alice In Wonderland. The latter of the two is titled directly after Lewis Carroll's actual book sequel, Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, and is currently set for a release in 2016. In the meantime, we've got ourselves some casting news on our hands! First and foremost, almost all of the original film's stars are confirmed to return: that's Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as Red Queen Iracebeth, and  Mia Wasikowska as Alice herself. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are returning, as well, and will once again be played by Matt Lucas. Otherwise, all of the voice cast are also basically set for a reprise, with Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit, Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, Timothy Spall as Bayard, Barbara Windsor as the Dormouse, and Paul Whitehouse as the March Hare. There's also a few promising new roles confirmed for the movie, including The Amazing Spider-Man actor Rhys Ifans as Zanik Hightopp, the Hatter's father! Sacha Baron Cohen is playing Time and Eragon's Ed Speleers is returning to the silver screen in a big way, playing a mystery character named James Harcourt. Lastly, Toby Jones is offering his voice to the character of Wilson. The impending sequel also has an incredibly impressive production staff, including Danny Elfman as score composer, Oscar winners Colleen Atwood and Ken Ralston, Hobbit production designer Dan Hennah, Walter Mitty director of photography Stuart Dryburgh, Gravity SFX supervisor Neil Corbould, Black Swan editor Andrew Wisblum, and Return of the King makeup designer Peter King. Finally,  of course, the acclaimed Tim Burton is returning as showrunner and lead producer! Are you looking forward to Through the Looking Glass? Let us know! Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
