For some reason, Disney has given the sequel to “Alice in Wonderland” a go and now we have the first official trailer for the film titled “Alice Through the Looking Glass.”
This new teaser shows Alice traveling back in time to help the Mad Hatter. There are not many details about the plot other than the cast is returning and there is time travel.
Tim Burton, who directed the first film, is a producer, with James Bobin directing this time around. Returning to the cast are Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. Rhys Ifans and Sacha Baron Cohen have also joined for the sequel. Cohen looks to have a particularly important role as the personification of “Time” via a half-clock, half-human who has the ability to travel back and forth through different time periods with a special skill secreted in a gold-colored chromosphere.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is out May 27, 2016. You can watch the trailer below:
Sacha Baron Cohen, who is very obviously a time traveling 1920’s villain, is rumored to be eyeing a role in the upcoming film, Through The Looking Glass. The film is director James Bobin’s big screen sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Cohen appears to be looking to take on the role of the lead villain in the project, as if he could audition or any other role. Though there is no word on what the role would entail or even a broad synopsis regarding the plot of the sequel.
The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll’s 19th century texts, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass,” starred Johnny Depp alongside Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, Mia Wasikowska, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor and grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.
Linda Woolverton, who scripted the Burton film, is again providing the screenplay this time around with Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska both set to reprise their roles.
