Helena Bonham Carter’s Red Queen Heads Through the Looking Glass


Helena Bonham Carter is making plans to return to Wonderland. Variety reports that she’s now set to reprise her Alice in Wonderland role as the Red Queen for director James Bobin’s upcoming sequel, Through the Looking Glass.

The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll’s 19th century texts, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass,” was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp alongside 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.

Linda Woolverton, who scripted the Burton film, is again providing the screenplay this time around with Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska previously announced to reprise their roles.
