Set years after Tim Burton’s 2010 take on Alice in Wonderland, the film’s sequel follows Alice on her unexpected return to Underland, with the help of a looking glass. Written by the first film’s scribe, Linda Woolverton, Through the Looking Glass will see Alice battle against the villainous Time itself in an effort to save the Mad Hatter.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

Take a look at the images below that show the film’s director, James Bobin, aims to maintain the same colorful aesthetic set by Burton six years ago.
