Ahead of the movie's premiere in less than three weeks, the House of Mouse has unveiled two new clips for its upcoming Alice In Wonderland movie sequel.
Alice Through the Looking Glass reunites Mia Wasikowska in the role of our young heroine Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. While Tim Burton directed the first Disney film, Flight of the Conchords helmer and creator James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) is now sitting in the director’s chair and is all set to bring the second of Alice’s zany adventures in Wonderland and the Underland to the big screen.
Returning for an encore are Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Matt Lucas, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, the late Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor. The new players include Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s dad, Zanik Hightopp, and Sacha Baron Cohen as the movie's villain, Time.
Both clips focus on Alice and the Mad Hatter and the intricacies of time when an older Alice meets a younger Hatter. Have a look!
