Whether you're a die-hard Johnny Depp fan or devoted Disney obsessive (if you can tick both boxes, even better) then we've got some exciting news for you. Brace yourselves, girls, as Disney have just staked out a May 2016 release date for its sequel to Alice In Wonderland, and stars Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Alice and the Mad Hatter. Exciting stuff, right? Although the return of the original cast hasn't yet been confirmed (Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Stephen Fry to name a few), we're over the moon to be taking another trip down the rabbit hole with number-one Grazia fave Johnny Depp.

When Tim Burton released the initial instalment of Alice in Wonderland back in 2010, we were blown away by the stunning visuals and weren't surprised when the film beat 3D hit Avatar in the box offices to bring in over $1 billion worldwide. Although a sequel to Alice was pretty much guaranteed, we're still over the moon to see the flick confirmed and cannot wait to check out what's coming next for Alice and her intrepid adventures. However, director Tim Burton opted not to sign up for the sequel and has instead handed over the reigns to James Bobin, who also directed The Muppets and Flight Of The Conchords. Stay tuned ladies- we're predicting big things! What's more, earlier this year, Depp announced that he might be retiring from acting sooner rather than later, saying, "I wouldn't say that I'm dropping out any second, but I would say that's probably not too far away." Well fear not, Depp-devotees, as it seems Johnny will be hanging around for a few more years at least. Phew!

It's certainly been a busy few months for our friends over at Disney- not only have they just confirmed a summer 2016 release for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film, but a new adaptation of The Jungle Book will also hit the big screens in October 2015. We just hope Orange Wednesday is still around in a couple of years' time, as we're envisaging plenty of cinema trips.
