'Alice Through the Looking Glass' Trailer: It's a Race Against Time
Let me just say that I was not a fan of Tim Burton's rehash of Alice in Wonderland in 2010. It felt like more of the same gothic circus junk that Burton has pushed before, but without any of the originality that made some of his earlier work great. However, the new trailer for the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, has my full attention. Maybe it's Jefferson Airplane's track "White Rabbit" that's making everything work better than it should, but this is a very well-cut trailer. Maybe director James Bobin is what this sequel needed to make Wonderland, and hopefully Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, interesting again. Watch!
Here's the new trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass from Disney:
Directed by James Bobin (The Muppets) with a screenplay by Linda Woolverton (Maleficent, Alice In Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast), the film "revisits Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time." Sacha Baron Cohen as Time and Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter's father Zanik Hightopp, join the returning cast, which includes Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter – Hatter Tarrant Hightopp, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen – Mirana, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Mia Wasikowska as the title character of Alice Kingsleigh, Matt Lucas as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, with Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, and a score by Danny Elfman. Disney will debut Alice Through the Looking Glass in theaters (in 3D) on May 27th early this summer.
