Helena Bonham Carter - Helena Bonham Carter returning for Alice in Wonderland sequel

Helena Bonham Carter is returning for the 'Alice in Wonderland' sequel.

The British actress has been confirmed to reprise her role as the evil Red Queen in 'Through The Looking Glass' opposite Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska, who are back as the Mad Hatter and Alice respectively.

According to Variety.com, the tyrant ruler will once again cause havoc after she returns from the Outlands, where she was banished by the Hatter and the White Queen (Anne Hathaway).

However, details of the plot remain a mystery since Tim Burton borrowed from both Lewis Carroll's classic novels 'The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There' for the first film.

New director James Bobin is directing from a script by Linda Woolverton, with a release set for May 2016.

Hathaway and Matt Lucas - who played twins Tweedledee and Tweedledum - could also be returning for the sequel.

Bonham Carter next appears in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 'The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet' this summer, followed by the new 'Cinderella' adaptation next Spring.
