Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter are this time joined by Sacha Baron Cohen, in a film that is said to revisit Lewis Carroll’s stories with an “all-new new tale that travels back to Underland —and back in Time.”

The all star cast continues with Stephen Fry, Alan Rickman and Michael Sheen will provide voices for the Cheshire Cat, the Blue Caterpillar and the White Rabbit.

Directed by James Bobin (The Muppets), the film is slated for release in 2016. Tim Burton, who directed the first instalment (which grossed more than $1 billion at the global box office and won two Oscars for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design), is on board as executive producer.
