‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Offers Another Tiny Teaser
If you blinked at all over the weekend, you may have missed the first teaser for Alice Through the Looking Glass, Disney’s sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, featuring Mia Wasikowska reprising her role as the adventurous titular protagonist. The studio has released a second, equally brief teaser, which features enough footage for maybe two or three blinks, depending on how dry your eyes are.
The new teaser features Wasikowska watching as a butterfly flies and disappears into a mirror, with a title card once again riffing on the concept of time — this time, it says “It’s about time,” which means we’ll probably be getting an actual, honest-to-goodness trailer for this sequel any day now, which would be excellent since these teasers are mighty thin.
James Bobin is taking over directing duties for Burton on the not-quite-anticipated sequel, which also features Johnny Depp reprising his role as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen alongside Wasikowska’s Alice. We’ll also meet the Mad Hatter’s father, Zanik Hightopp (yeah…), played by Rhys Ifans, and Sacha Baron Cohen plays a new character named Time whom we’ll absurdly speculate is an existential avatar for our collective endurance of these shenanigans.
No official plot details have been revealed thus far, though the sequel will likely offer some origin stories for a few of its characters. Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
