"Tick tock, your time is up!"

Walt Disney Pictures have recently released their latest trailer and one sheet for James Bobin's (The Muppets) Alice In Wonderland (2010) sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass.

Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Sheen, Toby Jones, Anne Hathaway and Alan Rickman are all returning, with the addition this time of Sacha Baron Cohen (The Dictator) as a creature of shifting morality called Time. Also on hand is Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) as Zanik Hightopp, the Mad Hatter's father. No such character appears in the original books, but any priority along those lines is a distant memory at this point.

Hitting harder than it otherwise might have thanks to narration this time from the late Rickman, it promises more of the brightly coloured madness that helped earn the Tim Buron's original more than $1 billion at the box office.

Produced by Joe Roth (Alice In Wonderland), with a screenplay once again by Linda Wolverton, Alice Through The Looking Glass arrives in the UK 27 May.
