"Everyone wants [it]. Alice needs it, but the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) wants it most of all," according to producer Suzanne Todd. "It basically powers time moving forward."
Todd adds that Sacha Baron Cohen's character, Time, is someone to be wary of in the film, "Alice Through the Looking Glass."
"Not someone you want as your enemy... He's definitely the kookiest of all," added Todd. "His comedy won't feel like Ali G, and it won't feel like Borat. It feels like it fits into our world."
"Alice Through the Looking Glass" producers said they thought of using time to create an equally interesting plot as "Alice in Wonderland," reported Entertainment Weekly.
"At first, a story didn't originally present itself," Suzanne explained. "So we took a long time to settle on this idea that was interesting to all of us, which was to take on the concept of time."
Time, says Todd, is part-human, part-clock. The plot of the film will have Alice going back to London, in an attempt to help the Mad Hatter.
"Alice Through the Looking Glass" is set for release May 27, 2016.
