Release dates for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland 2 and Ron Howard’s real life drama, Heart of the Sea, have been announced:
- Alice in Wonderland 2 will be released on 27th May 2016.
- Heart of the Sea will be released on 13th March 2015.
Other news with Alice in Wonderland 2 is that The Muppets director James Bobin will be assuming the directorial role for the Disney sequel from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. THR have also confirmed that Mia Wasikowska will be returning to the role as Alice and Depp will be reprising his role as the Mad Hatter.
No other plot details and further cast information have been released as of yet, but with a release date of 2016, I think we might have to wait a while.
Ron Howard’s Heart of Sea stars Chris Hemsworth and is based on the Nathaniel Philbrick novel, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex. The story follows a whaling ship that is preyed upon by a sperm whale, stranding its crew at sea for 90 days, thousands of miles from home. The disaster of the whaleship Essex served as the inspiration for Moby Dick. Also starring are Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, and Brendan Gleeson.
