We have our first trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, the followup/sequel to Tim Burton’s massively successful 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. All the players are back in their roles, including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, and Tim Burton is on board as a producer this time with James Bobin in the director’s chair.
Here is the Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer:
And here is the synopsis:
In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
If you’re into this sort of thing, and if you liked the first film (I didn’t particularly enjoy it), Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters May 27, 2016.
