Trailer Spotlight: Alice Through The Looking Glass
Alice in Wonderland was Disney foree into the reimagining of the animated films that they built their company on. Tim Burton Brought to life the animated version with stunning visual concepts that amazed audiences, but with a dull flat story that underwhelmed. Regardless of the original film’s shortcomings, it garnered serious profit, and as a result, Disney has moved forward with a sequel. The first Trailer for Through The Looking Glass, gave us a glimpse into the world, and a brief look at Sacha Baron Cohen as the new antagonist, and the second trailer has dropped and amplifies the visuals producing a psychedelic color explosion.

The plot seems to have pit Alice against the nefarious time, in an attempt to save her friend the Mad Hatter. The plot seems a bit thin here but the visuals are expressively powerful, and this certainly will be an event film based on the visceral and vibrant color palette and epic graphical cinematography. Whether the story will match the visuals is another story, but nevertheless, the trailer, mixed with an epic score is pleasing to the ears and eyes, and has peaked excitement for the sequel.
Here’s the official synopsis!
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 Wonderland 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.
