“You’ve been gone too long, Alice.”
So says an ominous voiceover at the beginning of the trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass
, Disney’s sequel to its hit, live-action Alice in Wonderland
movie. And indeed, it has been five years since the original was released and went on to gross more than $1 billion worldwide
But Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is finally back
, alongside scene-stealers Johnny Depp, as the Mad Hatter, and Helena Bonham Carter, as the Red Queen.
It’s safe to say Alice Through the Looking Glass looks just as colorful and kooky as the first, but with one notable addition: Sacha Baron Cohen, who is sure to steal a few scenes of his own as Time, a creature who is part human and part clock.
Unfortunately, Tim Burton did not return to direct the sequel. Instead, James Bobin (The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted) stepped behind the camera. But Burton did produce this one, so his fingerprints are still all over this.
Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
