Tick, tock. Tick, tock.
It won’t be long now before the long-awaited sequel to 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland” opens in theatres. And while we count down the months to the release of “Alice Through the Looking Glass“, you can bet that Disney will continue to keep us excited.
The Mouse House recently released a new teaser for “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and although it’s short, it’s also bittersweet, for it features the iconic voice of the late actor Alan Rickman.
You’ve been gone too long, Alice. There are matters that cannot be neglected. Hurry.
In the movie, Alan Rickman voices Absolem, better known as the Blue Caterpillar. He was last seen as a butterfly on Alice’s shoulder as she sailed off to China, but we’ll be able to hear a lot of him in the upcoming sequel.
“Alice Through the Looking Glass” is the last film Alan Rickman completed before his death last month.
“Alice Through the Looking Glass” finds Alice returning to Wonderland to battle the half-clock, half-human creature, Time, to save her best pal, the Mad Hatter. She is warned that she won’t be able to win a race against time and change the past, but she winds up going on a time travel adventure to prevent the loss of her friend.
Check out the 30-second teaser below, which shows various clips of Alice (played by Mia Wasikowska) falling through the sky and encountering strange characters such as the Queen of Hearts (played by Helena Bonham Carter) and Time himself (played by Sacha Baron Cohen).
