‘Alice Through The Looking Glass:’ Mia Wasikowska As Alice To Rescue Johnny Depp As The Mad Hatter
The James Bobin-directed movie “Alice Through the Looking Glass” is the sequel to the movie “Alice in Wonderland” released in 2010, and actually based on a novel titled “Through the Looking-Glass” written by Lewis Carroll in 1871. The upcoming movie of Bobin will star Hollywood’s renowned actors like Johnny Depp, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Rhys Ifans, Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway. Tim Burton, who directed the film “Alice in Wonderland,” will not be directing the sequel.
In the much-anticipated movie “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” the viewers will surely be mesmerized by seeing Wasikowska’s character Alice going back to an alternative or fantastical world termed “Underland.” Alice’s objective is to save her friend, “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor Depp’s character, the Mad Hatter from going dark.
According to Venture Capital Post, Time (the character to be played by “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” actor Cohen) is not exactly a human being. He is reportedly a peculiar creature – part human and part clock. In the movie “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” Time will be having a magnificent role in managing Alice’s travel time adventure in Underland where she will find things going absolutely wrong. Although Alice will be facing several warnings of not interfering in changing the past and going in a race against time, she finally will listen to her heart and move on for a time travel adventure.
Cinema Blend earlier revealed that the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” actor, Ifans will play the role of Zanik Hightopp, the father of Depp’s character, the Mad Hatter. The movie is already in the production and Ifans has joined with some returning castmembers like Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall, Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry.
A few footage of the upcoming movie “Alice Through the Looking Glass” was previewed at the 2015 D23 Convention that took place in Southern California’s Anaheim. A trailer featuring some scenes was shown to the audience to intensify their curiosity. Disney also revealed two new posters in August featuring Wasikowska’s character Alice and Depp’s character the Mad Hatter.
“Alice Through The Looking Glass” is scheduled to hit the big screen on May 27, 2016.
