Much of Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a forgettable, unsavory mess, but it did have some redeemable qualities. The filmmaker’s eye-popping visuals and imaginative production design were the best aspects of the largely unbearable Disney movie. But you’ll find none of that in the new sequel.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is one of the more curious sequel developments in recent years. Tim Burton’s CGI / live-action Wonderland hybrid (okay, the scales were definitely tipped in CGI’s favor) did fairly well at the box office, but we can thank international audiences for its real success…and for this sequel, which has a brand new trailer filled with wacky characters and lots of cute wordplay involving “time.”
Psychedelic rock icons Jefferson Airplane brought their acid-laced San Francisco sound to national prominence on the strength of such trippy singles as “Somebody to Love” and “Embryonic Journey” during counterculture’s heyday in the Summer of Love...
It’s sad to hear Alan Rickman’s voice. We lost the great Die Hard and Harry Potter star just a few weeks ago; Rickman died after a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. His work in Alice Through the Looking Glass is his final onscreen performance; he plays Absolem, the Caterpillar. That’s him saying “You’ve been gone too long Alice. There are matters that cannot be neglected.
The week of Alice Through the Looking Glass promo isn’t over yet. After that ridiculously teasey teaser and the first trailer for Disney‘s sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, we now have a slew of character posters.
Yes, the first substantial look into the 2010 smash’s sequel is here, five long years later and not a moment too soon. Starting with Alan Rickman’s purred opening line, “You’ve been gone too long, Alice,” a possible nod to the unusually long gap separating installments of the franchise, time is the name of the game.
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 promotional clip for the follow-up to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, clocking in at a whopping eleven seconds, does actually feel like it’s teasing us with its tantalizing brevity and refusal to surrender any actual information. The word “teaser” has never felt more appropriate.
