Alice: Through The Looking Glass is coming! Awww yeah. Can you hear that? That’s the sound of me fudderwacking. And why am I fudderwacking, you ask? Because Alice: Through The Looking Glass is coming to theaters May 27th. Fudderwacking seems the only acceptable course of action for this news.
Through The Looking Glass – Because Sometimes Sequels are Good
I have to admit, there are some movie franchises out there that have soured me on sequels. I won’t name names, but Michael Bay was involved in beating my childhood to death. That’s all I’ll say on that.
However, I have lots to say about the upcoming sequel to Alice in Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass. I am super stoked about this one. The first movie blew me away with its acting and visuals, and the second one is going to be just as fantastic. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, take a look.
Pretty sweet, right? All of the old gang is back, and we’re seeing some new faces, as well. All of the great feel of Alice is back, too. The vibrant colors, the costumes, the whole vibe is just delightfully weird.
All the Awesome of the First Alice with a Little Something Extra
Through the Looking Glass brings back the all-star lineup we love of Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, and Helena Bonham Carter, along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall. We’ll also see new characters like Znik Hightopp, the Mad Hatter’s father, and Time, Sacha Baron Cohen.
In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
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.
