See Disney's Super Bowl TV Spot for 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'
"You've been gone too long, Alice. There are matters which cannot be neglected. Hurry…!" Disney has debuted their very vibrant TV spot for Alice Through the Looking Glass that will be airing during the Super Bowl this weekend. This sequel to Disney's live-action Alice in Wonderland is directed by "Flight of the Conchords" veteran James Bobin, and the entire cast from the original returns. They even use the voice of the late Alan Rickman, who plays the Blue Caterpillar, which is a bit manipulative considering he just passed away a few weeks ago. Mia Wasikowska is back as Alice, along with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen as Time, Michael Sheen voicing the White Rabbit, and Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat. I dig the shot of all the hanging clocks/watches. Fire this up.
Here's the Super Bowl TV spot for James Bobin's Alice Through the Looking Glass, on YouTube:
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, 2016 this summer.

That's an awesome tv spot for Alice: Through the Looking Glass. @Alex Billington When do you think Pirates 5's teaser trailer will be released online? In August 2016 with Pete's Dragon or in November 2016 with Doctor Strange or in November 2016 with Moana?

Looks like it could be Electric Bugaloo territory. // It is always weird to see (or hear) these posthumous performances.

An excellent 30 sec spot, it really gets the juices flowing to see this. Actually, they also used Alan Rickman's voice over in the first full trailer a couple of months back, well before the actor's death. I like the use of the ticking clock and drum beat.
