‘Alice in Wonderland 2’ named ‘Through the Looking Glass’ with Sacha Baron Cohen playing the villain

Disney has officially named the sequel to Alice in Wonderland and may have landed a villain for the second film.

Now titled Through the Lookng Glass, Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska will reprise their roles for a second film and may be joined by Sacha Baron Cohen.

 Variety reports that Baron Cohen is in early talks for Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.  Details on both the plot and the nature of Baron Cohen’s role are being kept quiet, but The Wrap reports that he may play a villain named Time.

After a few failure at the box office (Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger) Depp agreed to return as the Mad Hatter following his filming of the fifth Pirate of the Caribbean film.

There are no other plot details at this time, but the title borrows its name directly from the 1871 Lewis Carroll novel.

The Muppets director will be helming the project due to open in theaters on May 27, 2016.
