Alice Through the Looking Glass comes to theaters this May, and Disney has released the film’s latest trailer. It shows that Alice may be time-pressured this time as Alan Rickman’s Blue Caterpillar caution her to hurry up. Will she be able to save the Mad Hatter in time?
The latest trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass shows Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar since 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. As strict as he was during the first film, this time, he cautions Alice to hurry up.
The clip shows the Blue Caterpillar saying, “You’ve been gone too long, Alice.” Actress Mia Wasikowska who plays Alice is then seen juggling through time to save the Mad Hatter, played by Johnny Depp. The Blue Caterpillar then adds, “There are matters that cannot be neglected. Hurry.”
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the film’s producer, Suzanne Todd, revealed, “She [Alice] 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.” She added, “She has to face the decision of what she’s going to do with the rest of her life.”
In other news, Slash Film reports that Tim Burton did not direct “Alice Through The Looking Glass” as he did in “Alice in Wonderland.” For the film’s second installment, “The Muppets” director James Bobin took over, and others have speculated that “this cannot be good.”
Despite Burton’s absence, the original cast from the franchise have reprised their roles. Wasikowska still plays Alice, Depp as the Mad Hatter, Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.
The production also welcomed comedian Sacha Baron Cohen as the newest member of the cast. He plays the half-clock, half-human character named Time.
