Disney’s marketing machine is firing on all cylinders in anticipation of tomorrow’s full-length trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, with the latest teaser to arrive focusing on the fragile beauty of time.
It’s the latest in a long string of snippets for James Bobin’s live-action feature, with the first gracing the web during the company’s D23 event back in August. Now, on the eve of the bona fide trailer, the House of Mouse is offering budding fans a final peek behind the curtain at Alice’s (Mia Wasikowska) mind-bending trip back to Wonderland.

Guided by Sacha Baron Cohen’s newcomer – he’s primed to play the part of Time itself – Alice will journey back to various time periods to reconnect with core members from Tim Burton’s 2010 picture Alice in Wonderland. That includes Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonhan Carter as the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and each star is back for another whimsical tale of adventure and fantasy.
James Bobin’s alternative, prequel-esque Alice Through the Looking Glass will beckon fans back to Wonderland when it hits theaters on May 27, 2016. For now, check out the official synopsis below and check back tomorrow when we’ll have a full breakdown of the full-length trailer.
Director James Bobin brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” in which Alice (Wasikowska) returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. The film, which once again features Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall, introduces several new characters as well: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father, and Time.
