Alice Faces Down Dragons, Queens + Chess Pieces in ‘Looking Glass’ Trailer
Here's hoping Alice considers investing in a parachute—after tumbles down the rabbit hole and, more recently, out of a door in the sky (what a pain!), preparation might ultimately wind up saving the Disney character's life.
In a new trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass released today (November 5), the character, who first appeared on film in 1951's Alice in Wonderland, is back to help save the Mad Hatter from peril. She'll have to face down dragons, Time (a human character) and, of course, the Red Queen if she wants to restore order to the alternate universe, but the latter, for one, won't make it easy.
"When the day becomes the night, and the sky becomes the sea, then the clock strikes heavy, and there's no time for tea," a voice warns in the clip above over bold images of a giant clock, dark castle corridors and a life-sized chessboard.
Through The Looking Glass stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time, himself. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay and James Bobin directed the picture.
"I really love the character of Alice and I read all the books and I have a deep sort of affection for her character and the other characters in the film," Wasikowska told Legion of Leia in August. "I think it’s so nice that something that’s so classic kind of lends itself to so many different interpretations."
Check out the trailer, and be sure to catch Alice Through The Looking Glass on May 27, 2016.
