Watch the Fantastical New Trailer for 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'

Nov 05, 2015

Our first fantastical extended look at Alice Through the Looking Glass has arrived online, delivering a hearty (and Mad Hatty) preview of the much-anticipated sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland.

Check it out below.

With worldwide grosses of over $1 billion, Alice in Wonderland was an instant hit for Disney and helped usher in a new era of live-action Disney remakes, with Cinderella, Maleficent and many more on the horizon (Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, among others). Now all of your favorite Wonderland characters are back for a story that tasks Alice (Mia Wasikowska) with returning to the wondrous world of Underland where she travels back in time on a quest to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp).

The first full-length trailer for the film -- due in theaters on May 27, 2016 -- sets up the time-twisty story by reintroducing us to returning characters, as well as teasing some new ones -- most notably Sacha Baron Cohen's Time, a character who's part human, part clock. James Bobin replaces Tim Burton as director this time around, and while it's clear many of Burton's visual flourishes carried over to the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass definitely feels a bit darker and more dangerous than its predecessor. Were we the only ones who felt a bit of a Harry Potter vibe going on?
