Walt Disney Pictures is planning a return trip to Lewis Carroll's Wonderland. Variety reports that the studio has hired Linda Woolverton to draft a follow-up to Tim Burton's 2010 film, Alice in Wonderland.

The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll's 19th century texts, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," starred Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, Mia Wasikowska, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor and grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.

Woolverton, who wrote the original film, also turned in the screenplay for Disney's upcoming Maleficent. There's currently no word on what other cast and crew from the 2010 film might return, but check back for details as they become available.
