The New Alice Through the Looking Glass Trailer Is a Visual Smorgasbord
The sequel to Tim Burton’s successful Alice in Wonderland movie is just around the corner, the new Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer has arrived. Mia Wasikowska returns as Alice, and she will be joined once again by Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham-Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, with many others also reprising their roles. The movie is directed by James Bobin, who says that he wanted to mix Burton’s Wonderland with the work of legendary Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrator, John Tenniel. “I hope the film is a combination of Tim’s great work in the first one, in terms of creating the universe and look to a degree, but also … Alice in England is a huge deal, I mean, obviously everyone in England has that book. Your grandparents have it, your parents have it, you have it. Everyone has it. You know it really well. And so, my experience of that was far more from the book in terms of the illustrations by John Tenniel, so I also knew of that world. I want to bring a bit of that to it.”
The synopsis of the movie is as follows:
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. Apart from the characters that we all know and love, 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.
The movie is set for release on May 27th, so be sure not to miss it.
