Sacha Baren Cohen is the Lord of Time in the new Alice Through the Looking Glass movie. With a release date of May 27, we have quite a wait ahead of us.
Among returning cast members, you’ll find Mia Wasikowska, Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter (Tim Burton’s wife). Bonham Carter has been in most of Tim Burton’s movies, in case you hadn’t noticed. (See: Big Fish, Sweeney Todd, and Dark Shadows to name a few.) James Bobin (co-creator of Flight of the Conchords) is directing the film.
In the second installation of the Alice in Wonderland Franchise, Alice is tasked to save the Mad Hatter from Time, who has transformed the once vibrant and vivacious world of her dreams into a dark and dreary place of nightmares.
For me, the Wonderland Burton fleshed out in the first movie was like a bad acid trip in full Technicolor, but let’s see how dark the rabbit hole can get in this next movie.
