Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass marks the return of Mia Wasikowska playing the title heroine who must return to Wonderland to help fix the Mad Hatter who is suffering from a depressing stupor. Anne Hathaway also reprises her role as the White Queen, whom we find out has a few skeletons in her closet.
We were recently invited to the film’s press junket where we learned about why the cast wanted to come back to Wonderland, their memories of reading Lewis Carroll, and why Hathaway thinks it is wrong to think of actors as role models. Check it all out below.
Disney has released the latest trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass. Directed by James Bobin, the film follows Alice (Mia Wasikowska) who needs to return to the realm of the Underland where she discovers that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is madder than usual, haunted by past events that he refuses to reveal.
Wasikowska, Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter all return to reprise their original roles, while they will be joined by newcomers Sacha Baron Cohen, who will play the villainous embodiment of Time, and Rhys Ifans, who will play the Mad Hatter’s father. Check out the trailer below.
