Disney used last night’s 2016 Grammy Awards to unveil a new trailer for their Alice in Wonderland sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.
The live-action follow up looks to be a trippy adventure down the rabbit hole thanks to the film’s colorful visuals and characters.
Notably, the new Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer includes a great cover of “White Rabbit” (get it? Get it?) by P!nk. The song was originally by Jefferson Airplane, who released it in 1967. It fits Alice perfectly, and for good reason: Jefferson Airplane was inspired by the original Alice stories when they wrote it.
Disney used the unveiling of “White Rabbit” to announce that P!nk will also “write and record an original song” for Alice, which we assume we’ll be hearing within the next couple of months.
Check out the trailer below:
Also notable: The late Alan Rickman (who died in January) appears in the trailer thanks to his portrayal of the Blue Caterpillar. “You’ve been gone too long, Alice,” he says in his signature voice. “And do mind your step.” This is expected to be his final movie role.
In related news, Disney unveiled a new poster for the movie. It’s quite whimsical, and Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter is giving us a Willy Wonka vibe:
“Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter,” reads a synopsis from Disney. “Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen with Alice in Wonderland, the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll. The producers are Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton. John G. Scotti serves as executive producer. Alice Through the Looking Glass reunites the cast from the 2010 worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter and introduces new characters played by Rhys Ifans and Sacha Baron Cohen. Also back are the talented voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor and Paul Whitehouse, and they are joined by Toby Jones.”
Alice Through the Looking Glass opens May 27. Do you think you’ll see it?
