Fans are gearing up for another trip to Wonderland in Alice Through the Looking Glass, but all's not well upon her return. Everything's gone wrong for the Mad Hatter, and it's up to Alice to save the day.
An exclusive clip shared with Entertainment Weekly shows Alice's return to Wonderland with a scene that sets the film into motion.
In the clip, Alice is joined by returning favorites like the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), Thackery the March Hare (Paul Whitehouse) and more, who task her with traveling through time to save the Mad Hatter. As they tell Alice, the Hatter's delusional, and the only way to save him is to go back in time and make his delusions reality. It's sure to be a difficult adventure, but one Alice is more than willing to undertake. As the heroine proclaims at the end of the clip, "Hatter is my truest friend. If he's in need, I'll help him. No matter what."
The clip provides a solid jumping-off point for Alice's next adventure in Wonderland, showcasing plenty of returning characters while establishing the new narrative's premise. We should get to see past versions of Alice's friends in the new film and, given the nonsensical nature of Wonderland, that could provide some unique moments for fans.
Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27. Are you excited for the new movie? What do you think will happen in Alice's next adventure through Wonderland? Let us know in the comments.
