Earlier this week Disney teased fans with two ten second teasers of the 2010 Alice in Wonderland sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, leaving much to the imagination. This morning, however, the studio released the first full-length trailer for the film, giving us more details as to the plot direction and characters.

Watch this first glimpse at Alice Through the Looking Glass to see what kind of adventure Underland has in store for audiences this time.

From the looks of things, Underland has become a lot darker since Alice's last visit. Perhaps it has something to do with Tim Burton producing the film, while James Bobin is taking on the role of director.

Along with Mia Wasikowska playing Alice, Alice Through the Looking Glass will bring back fan-favorite characters like the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), the Blue Caterpillar (Alan Rickman), and the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry).

Additionally, two new characters, Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) and Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter's father, will be joining the all-star cast.

Time will clearly be a big theme

And I mean that literally. That is one big clock.

Part human and part clock, Sacha Baron Cohen will be playing the villain in the sequel.

If you thought being sent into exile would be the last we saw of the Red Queen, you thought wrong.

'Alice Through the Looking Glass' will premiere in theaters on May 27, 2016.
