The trailer is released for the highly anticipated Alice Through the Looking Glass. This upcoming American adventure is written by and produced by Tim Burton. It is based on Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll and is the sequel to the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland. Alongside Sacha Baron Cohen the film stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway.
Directed by Flight of the Conchords helmer James Bobin, Alice Through the Looking Glass brings audiences face to face with Time himself, a quirky, half-clock, half-human character played by Sacha Baron Cohen. In terms of his behaviour, he’s definitely the kookiest of all,” Todd says of the film’s ensemble. In keeping with Disney’s tradition of villains with special powers, Time has the ability to travel back and forth through different time periods, a coveted skill secreted in a gold-colored chromosphere, which “everyone wants, Alice needs it, but the Red Queen wants most of all,” shares Todd. “It basically powers time moving forward.”
The film is set to be released by Walt Disney Pictures on May 27, 2016.
