Sacha Baron Cohen is in early talks to join the cast of Disney’s sequel to “Alice in Wonderland,” “Through the Looking Glass.”

Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska will return for the “Alice” sequel, which will be directed by “The Muppets” helmer James Bobin.

Plot details are being kept underwraps. Pic will bow on May 27, 2016.

Baron Cohen will play the villain, although details behind the character are unknown.

Baron Cohen has been developing a handful of projects, including the Louis Leterrier-directed “Grimsby” that he will shoot in early summer and will then segway into the “Through the Looking Glass” shoot.

He is also developing “The Lesbian” at Paramount, which he will star in and produce.

The WME-repped Baron Cohen was last seen in “Les Miserables.” Baron Cohen and Depp previously worked together on Warner Bros. film, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”
