The movie is a sequel to Burton’s first Alice In Wonderland and features the star studded cast with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. Before his death in January, Rickman lent his voice for The Blue Caterpillar.
The film continues Alice’s journey, played by Mia Wasikowska. She is on a quest to save the Mad Hatter from the pressures of a ticking Chronosphere, a device that powers all of time itself.
Burton’s adaptation of Lewis Carrol’s story in 2010 made over a billion dollars at the box office when it was first released. The sequel is set to be released in May of this year.
