“You’ve been gone too long, Alice.” Indubitably! Disney has unleashed the first visually stunning full-length trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass.

In the upcoming movie, our heroine, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the Underland and travels back in time in order to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). She also engages in an epic faceoff with the menacing Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) along the way. Also starring are Anne Hathaway, Matt Lucas, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Paul Whitehouse, Barbara Windsor and Rhys Ifans. Helena Bonham Carter also makes her splashy return as the murderous “off with her head” Red Queen.

Directed by James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords, Muppets Most Wanted), Alice Through the Looking Glass is a direct sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 blockbuster movie Alice in Wonderland. From the looks of the trailer below, the new movie will boast some spectacular visual effects worthy of Burton’s (and Lewis Carroll's) wacky imagination. Check it out:
