Disney has released a new Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer. The sequel is returning to Underland with a new story that finds Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter all returning in their original roles, alongside new cast members Sacha Baron Cohen and Rhys Ifans. The plot finds Alice (Wasikowska) out to save her friend the Mad Hatter (Depp) from the nefarious Time (Cohen).
It’s a bit of a thin plot, but it looks like it will be more than enough to hang all of the gorgeous production design on. Director James Bobin has seemingly outdone what Tim Burton accomplished on Alice in Wonderland, but hopefully he has a better story to go along with it. At the very least, the eye candy appears to be boundless.
Check out the Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer below. The film opens May 27th, and also features the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall.

Here’s the official synopsis:
Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Sheen), Absolem (Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
