Disney's 'Alice In Wonderland 2,' 'Jungle Book' Get Release Dates

Disney has penciled in May 27, 2016 for a return to Wonderland.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that's when the studio plans to release the sequel to Tim Burton's 2010 fantasy adventure Alice in Wonderland. Johnny Deep and Mia Wasikowska are expected to reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter and Alice, with James Bobin (The Muppets) directing.

But that's not the only weekend Disney staked out: The studio also set Oct. 9, 2015 as the release for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, announced earlier this month. Justin Marks is writing that film based on Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name and, possibly, Disney's jazzy 1967 animated adaptation.
