Earlier this month, Disney released two TV spots from the highly-anticipated sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, which featured the voice of the late great Alan Rickman, who passed away last month. Last week, fans saw new footage with the Super Bowl 50 trailer, but now, in honor of Valentine’s Day, the studio has released three brief TV spots from this fantasy adventure, set to hit theaters on May 27. The footage give us new looks at Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and a new character, Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Time.
Johnny Depp returns as The Mad Hatter, who is in great danger! Anne Hathaway (White Queen), Mia Wasikowska (Alice) and Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen) are also back. They join the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters including Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
In Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, we get an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll‘s beloved stories. Alice meets Time himself, and must set off to rescue her beloved Underworld friends. Directed by James Bobin, he 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 Kingsleigh 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 (Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) 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. It will go up against X-Men: Apocalypse, setting the stage for what could be an epic box office showdown. Take a look at the first trailer!
