“Alice Through The Looking Glass” Trailer: Johnny Depp Returns To Wonderland – WATCH!
The upcoming film looks visually stunning, as is to be expected from a live-action fairy tale in which the main character enters a fantastical world by walking through a mirror. Unlike the first film, the sequel introduces an element of time travel as Alice must travel back in time to prevent Wonderland from being destroyed.
Depp reprises his role as the Mad Hatter, while Wasikowska is Alice once again. Also returning for the sequel are Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Michael Sheen as the voice of the White Rabbit, and Alan Rickman as the voice of the Blue Caterpillar. A notable new cast addition is Sacha Baron Cohen as the evil Lord of Time, a villain who is part human, part clock.
The first film’s director, Tim Burton, isn’t returning behind the camera, although he remains on board as a producer. James Bobin, who directed 2011’s Muppets reboot, takes over directing duties this time around.
Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016. Watch the first trailer for Disney’s highly-anticipated sequel, and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
