The Muppets' James Bobin in early negotiations to direct Alice in Wonderland 2

05.31.2013

Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND has its fans and detractors but there's no denying that the movie killed at the box office. $334 million domestically. Over $1 billion worldwide. Disney had already announced plans for a sequel in December but it looks like Tim Burton won't be returning to Wonderland.

The Wrap is reporting that James Bobin (THE MUPPETS) is in early talks to helm the sequel. A source for The Wrap made it very clear that these talks are in the early stages and Bobin hasn't met with the producers for the film yet. One person Bobin apparently needs to talk to first is actor Johnny Depp, who is likely to return even though no official announcement has been made.

James Bobin is currently working on THE MUPPETS...AGAIN! and doesn't have any commitments after that movie so he'll certainly have the time to direct the film Disney goes with him. Obviously ALICE IN WONDERLAND 2 is a much bigger film than THE MUPPETS so it'll be interesting to see how he handles the directing duties.

Regardless of how you feel about ALICE IN WONDERLAND a sequel is going to happen. When a movie makes that much dough it'd be more of a surprise if there wasn't a sequel. But will it be able to duplicate the same success the first film had, especially since the excitement for 3D films has dropped since ALICE IN WONDERLAND was released in 2010?

At this time it's not clear when ALICE IN WONDERLAND 2: MAD HATTER'S BOOGALOO might hit theaters.

Extra Tidbit: I actually didn't get to see ALICE IN WONDERLAND in theaters. Did it look good in 3D or did people just flock to theaters because of the goodwill created by AVATAR?

Oh man, that movie was such a flying piece of crap. I'm still angry at myself for seeing it in the theaters.

The movie was terrible. It managed to walk the line between way overstimulating and boring as hell. I would never subject myself to a second.

If they make a sequel, focus less on the Mad Hatter, please.

good

I love the classic stories.

Needless to say i detested burtons vision. Its was just awful, had absolutely no charm to it. Jefferson aeroplane tell the story better than that hack burton did.
Fingers crossed Depp and the rest of the awful cast get dropped.

This is up there with Sweeny Todd and planet of the apes.

I enjoyed the first one and thought it was a fun time. I don't really see the need for a sequel. I thought the film was a good one and done.

2 things.

Firstly, is this another of your favorite movies ever?

Secondly, again you don't seem to know the source material.

I take it your 15 - 17 years old and think johnny Depp is the best actor ever?

who cares? I hated the movie as well, so what if soloist likes it? A movie doesn't have to follow the source material for someone to enjoy it.

teenagers talkng out their ass just annoys me- Why? If ya don't like it, don't read it. I know it's hard sometimes with some of the dumb things posted here (which we're all guilty of) but that's why there's the thumbs up/down system. Don't like it? Thumbs down, plain and simple. Insulting others because they like certain movies you don't accomplishes absolutely nothing.

Every second post relates to another of his "favorite movies ever"- Some People use that term looser than others, so what?

He has awful taste. Like wore than a 13 year old girls taste.- We all have different taste in movies, what's your pont?


He sems to enjoy Childs films.- Pixar movies are childs movies, Dreamworks Animation movies are kids movies, the majority of disney movies are kids movies, a lot of superhero movies are kids movies, what's your point?

Oh and its only either only comic book movies or huge blockbusters he talks about.- What are the majority of the news reported on this site again? BIg movies/comic book movies/blockbusters.

IMO you're just being a hater buddy. Appreciate the viewpoints of others (even if they are completely dumb), if you don't agree with them, debate. 100 different people seeing the same movie are gonna all see it 100 different ways.

a.kavanagh@live.co.uk....

First off, I'm not a teenager. Older than that. So you can stop with the whole mind or opinion of a child thing that you always like to reply with my posts with.

And second, why so mad? You just purposely trying to be a hater on this site?

Ok...
So, Soloist is a twentysomething optimistic who finds a way to enjoy himself at (almost every) movies... How is it a bad thing ? Have you EVER read him post a hateful, disrespectful or an insulting comment ? Neither did I ! Your opinion is different than his ? Fine, it's called having one (yes, to like everything is having an opinion as well !). So please, if you want YOUR opinion respected, start by respecting others' !
