Helena Bonham Carter back for ‘Alice in Wonderland’ sequel, James Bobin reveals look of film

“I have hired Dan Hennah, who did The Hobbit, which was beautiful and Lake-Town particularly impressed me,” Bobin tells Collider in a new interview.
“This one is a slightly different—it’s set in Underland but it’s in different parts of Underland, so it has a slightly more human world.  I can’t really talk about it very much, but I certainly knew that the work he showed in The Hobbit was so spectacularly good [so] he’d be perfect for this.”
Bobin discusses his lost of history, ruins and how this inspires his vision of Wonderland.
“The movie is not a real action movie.  The movie is a movie where you wanna create a world where you’re happy to spend two hours of your life.  You wanna be there and think, ‘What’s around that corner? I love being in this place.’  And that’s what it felt like in the first movie, I liked being in Underland and I love the idea that we’re gonna create that world again, a place where you’re happy to spend time.”
It’s unknown if Anne Hathaway and Alan Rickman will return as well.  
Through the Looking Glass on May 27, 2016.
