Alice in Wonderland 2 and The Jungle Book Both Get Release Dates

It’s been over three years since Alice in Wonderland hit our screens and raked in the dough, and when a Disney film this big makes over a billion dollars it’s usually fit to hear a sequel is in the works.

Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska have been confirmed to star in the fantasy epic and The Muppet’s director James Bobin will take over Tim Burton’s helm as director.

Alice in Wonderland 2 has been given a May 27th, 2016 release date.

Another film to join the roster of book adaptations will be The Jungle Book. Jon Favreu is attached to direct the Rudyard Kipling classic and has booked in an October 9th, 2015 release date.

With Disney releasing The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars Episode VII in the same year, 2015 is looking to be a promising year of blockbusters.
