Disney has released the first trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass online. The sequel to the 2010 hit Alice In Wonderland, sees the return of Mia Wasikowska as Alice, who must save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and help stop the nefarious Time (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock. The sequel also sees the addition of Rhys Ifans who will play Zanik Hightopp, the Mad Hatterâ€™s father.
We saw two small teasers for the film just a few days back, and some interesting footage while at the D23 Expo. But just in case you missed it all, this is your first look at the CGI-kaleidoscope colored splashed sequel. Check out the trailer below.
Also returning are Anne Hathaway as the White Queen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall have voice roles in the movie.
Alice Through The Looking Glass looks as you might expect a film to look like coming from the mind of Tim Burton, but with a tad bit more CGI. A bit wacky, zany, and just plain strange. However, Burton handed over his directing duties to James Bobin. The first film ended up grossing just over a billion dollars worldwide, so there was no question that there was going to be a sequel. But the question is, could The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted director meet or even exceed those expectations?
We’ll just have to find out. Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
