Rickman can also be heard at the beginning of the film’s trailer, which was released back in November. For the new film, the actor reprised his voice role of Absolem the Caterpillar, and in the new teaser, he tells the title character, “You’ve been gone too long, Alice,” and that “there are matters which cannot be neglected.”
Directed by James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) with Tim Burton on as producer, Alice Through the Looking Glass sees Alice (Mia Wasikowska) go back in time to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), and goes up against Time (Sacha Baron Cohen). Anne Hathaway is back as the White Queen, with Helena Bonham Carter as the wicked Red Queen. Returning to their voice roles along with Rickman are Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall, while Rhys Ifans comes aboard for the first time as Zanik Hightopp, the Mad Hatter’s father.
Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
