Helena Bonham Carter

Disney has already rounded up Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska to return for Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Tim Burton's 2010 hit adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Now another character from the first film will be returning as Variety reports frequent Depp co-star and Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter will reprise her big-headed role as the villainous Red Queen for the sequel slated to hit theaters on May 27th, 2016. However, this time it's not Burton directing Carter, but rather The Muppets helmer James Bobin behind the camera. No story details are available, so we're not sure what to expect.

Is there a chance that Anne Hathaway might be back as the White Queen, or Alan Rickman as the voice of the Cheshire Cat? We're not sure if they're even involved in the sequel's story, so that might not be necessary. It's probably safe to safe that Depp was one of the biggest draws for the first film, not to mention him working with Tim Burton again, but the film earned over a billion worldwide at the box office, so mostly everyone found something to like about the film (though some of us didn't). Carter will also be seen in Disney's new, live-action Cinderella as the fairy godmother, so stay tuned.

Pretty sure it was Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat. Wasn't Alan Rickman the Caterpillar?

She is a great actress. But I wish she do more Indie stuff. She was amazing in THE KING'S SPEECH.

Hmmm i didnt think she got much movie time to be able to say she was "amazing" in that particular movie. She definitely shines more in other movies though
