Walt Disney Studios has unveiled the second trailer for the sequel to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass. The new trailer was debuted at the 2016 Grammys and features one hell of a trippy ride.
Watch the trailer here:
Alice Through the Looking Glass sees Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) returning to London five years after going out into the sea to mimic her father’s footsteps. AsAbsolem the Caterpillar (voiced by Alan Rickman) says in the trailer, Alice has been gone too long, and she finds herself again in the magical world ofUnderland, the opposite of Wonderland.
Alice joins Absolem, the White Rabbit (voiced by Michael Sheen), the Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry), and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), as they are sent by the White Queen Mirana (Anne Hathaway) to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe located inside the Grand Clock’s chamber.
Other reprising cast include Helena Bonham Carter (the Red Queen), Matt Lucas (Tweedledum), and Timothy Spall (Bayard the Bloodhound).
Alice and the gang must travel back in time. Along the way, they encounter old and new friends and enemies, including the Mad Hatter's father, Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans) and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen).
The background music used Pink’s version of the Jefferson Airplane’sWhite Rabbit. The studio also put out a new featurette with Pink recording the soundtrack.
Check it out:
I have to say I’m quite excited to see the film when it comes out in May. It’s quite refreshing to see this fantasy film with all the comic book films lined up for the year. Besides, it would be a kind of tribute to the late Alan Rickman to watch the last film he’s appeared in. That isn’t to say I wouldn’t like to watch all of the superhero films in 2016. I’m still excited for them!
Alice Through the Looking Glass is set for release on May 27. The film is directed by James Bobin and penned by Linda Woolverton.
