Trailer Watch: Alice Returns to Wonderland and Battles Time in 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'

Alice Through the Looking Glass” has a new trailer. The action-adventure sees Mia Wasikowska returning to Wonderland to reprise her role as Alice, and a new TV spot gives us a sense of what adventures await her through the looking glass.

The footage begins with Alice being described, likely by a physician, as “excitable, emotional, prone to fantasy,” but she insists, “There’s nothing wrong with me.” Who wouldn’t be excitable and emotional after being thrust into a psychedelic fantasy world with talking caterpillars and cats?  

Wasikowska will go from battling haunted spirits from the past in “Crimson Peak” to duking it out with Time himself — yes, in this world, Time is an individual (Sacha Baron Cohen) — and one who seemingly bears a grudge against our plucky protagonist. “Tick-tock, your time is up,” he threatens. 

This extended look at “Alice Through the Looking Glass” features a rendition of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” by Pink. The singer-songwriter, who has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, will also write and record an original song that will appear in the film and be included in the soundtrack. 

The first installment of the franchise, “Alice in Wonderland,” grossed over $1 billion worldwide when it was released in 2010. Alice’s follow-up journey will be penned by the screenwriter behind the first film, Linda Woolverton (“Maleficent”). 

“Alice Through The Looking Glass” opens in theaters May 27. Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter co-star.
