As Tracking Board previously reported, Universal picked up the rights to the series in May and is working off a three-book proposal. The film will follow the titular character from her beginnings as a lonely, good-natured princess to her rise as the cruel and murderous tyrant of Wonderland. It has been pitched tonally in the vein of Snow White & The Huntsman and Maleficent. It has also been favorably compared to Gregory Maguire’s Wicked.
Sara Scott will be overseeing the adaptation for Universal.
