Alice Through The Looking Glass
Last night you lost an hour to Daylight Savings…or perhaps it was stolen? (Ours was stolen as my husband set the alarm clock back before he went to bed, then the alarm clock went another hour ahead). He got up only to say it was much earlier than he needed to get up.
So don’t waste any more time…check out the new TV spot from Disney’s all-new spectacular adventure ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter, opening in theaters May 27th.
In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.
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 Underland 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.
