‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Teaser Features the Voice of the Late Alan Rickman
The countdown has officially begun until the highly anticipated follow-up to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland opens in theaters, after Disney released a new teaser trailer for the film Monday night that highlights the final role of late actor Alan Rickman, who reprises his role as the Blue Caterpillar.
“You’ve been gone too long, Alice,” the British actor speaks ominously at the opening of the trailer. “There are matters which cannot be neglected. … Hurry.”
The teaser shows some indication of what our favorite returning characters, the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), the Chesire Cat (Stephen Fry), the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) and Alice (Mia Wasikowska), have been up to since we last left them on their adventure.
The trailer also introduces a new character that is half-clock, half-human named Time, played by Sacha Baron Cohen.
The sequel, directed by James Bobin, picks up three years after Alice in Wonderland left off with Alice on “her quest to rescue the Mad Hatter from a heartbreaking end against the pressures of a ticking Chromosphere, a device that powers all of time itself,” shared Entertainment Weekly.
“She faces that moment that a lot of young adults do in their 20s, which is that the way you spend your time is really important of what you’re going to accomplish in your life,” producer Suzanne Todd told EW. “She has to face this decision of what she’s going to do with the rest of her life.”
