Many expected the cast presence of Johnny Depp to boost the audience of Alice in Wonderland during its 2010 release, but no expected billion-dollar territory for the film’s success. Needless to say, a sequel was almost a lock and 2016 sees Alice’s return to Wonderland, but sharing a release date in May with X-Men: Apocalypse almost certainly cancels the franchise’s chance at a billion-dollar repeat. With most of the original cast returning in Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, and more, expect continued success from the Disney family franchise, but not on the same scale as the 2010 Tim Burton entry. Without Tim Burton at the helm, it’ll be hard to repeat such success.
