It's time to go down the rabbit hole again.

Although, as it happens, time is not on anyone's side in Walt Disney Pictures' Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland. A new trailer debuted during the 2016 Grammys on CBS. After spending five years following in her father's footsteps and sailing the seas, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) returns London only to wind up back in the whimsical world of Underland. She reunites with the White Rabbit (voiced by Michael Sheen), Absolem (voiced by Alan Rickman) and the Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry), as well as the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), who has lost his Muchness. Mirana (Anne Hathaway) sends Alice on a journey to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock. Alice meets old friends and foes as she travels back in time, and also encounters new people, like Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter's father, and even Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen).

Helena Bonham Carter, Matt Lucas, Timothy Spall also reprise their roles.

The studio enlisted Pink to sing Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit."

Alice Through the Looking Glass


Linda Woolverton—who wrote 2014's Maleficent, 2010's Alice in Wonderland, 1994's The Lion King and 1991's Beauty and the Beast—penned the script for Alice Through the Looking Glass. The film is based on author Lewis Carroll's second Alice novel, 1871's Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. After the first live-action film earned over $1 billion worldwide, Tim Burton decided to hand the directorial duties down to James Bobin, though he stayed on board as a producer.

Wasikowska spoke about the highly anticipated sequel during the D23 Convention in August 2015. "I grew up watching all of them, so I have such an affection for all them," the actress said of the beloved storybook characters. "It's been almost six years since we did the last film, so to be able to kind of reunite with Helena, Johnny and Annie, it was lovely. We all get along really well, so it was just really fun."

Alice Through the Looking Glass is in theaters May 27.
