Disney has released a new full-length trailer for “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” In the sequel to ‘Alice in Wonderland, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland. There, Alice 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.
“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. The voices of the late Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall also enrich the film. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp, played by Rhys Ifans, the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself portrayed by Sacha Baron Cohen who is a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
The story follows young Alice Kingsleigh, who has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the Cheshire Cat, and the Mad Hatter; who is not himself.
The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D, Real D 3D and IMAX 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
