Since Disney’s new Alice Through the Looking Glass isn’t really based on the book of the same name, we don’t really know exactly what to expect from the new film. However, when you combine the imaginations of Lewis Carroll and Tim Burton, one can anticipate that what you’ll get is going to be a head trip of visual style. It turns out that’s pretty much the case. Check out the new trailer for the trip Through the Looking Glass.

Hello, Alice! Watch the brand new trailer and prepare to go #ThroughTheLookingGlass on May 27. Get your tickets now: http://fandan.co/22YfgwU

This new trailer gives a little bit of the film's setup on our side of the looking glass for a change. Alice has apparently been committed, because that’s what happens when you tell people you fell down a rabbit hole and ended up in a world with talking caterpillars. Mia Wasikowska also looks to be auditioning for future action movies as Alice now repels down walls and drives carriages. Our caterpillar is now a butterfly, who brings Alice back to Wonderland (or Underland if you insist) in what will be Alan Rickman’s final film role. We know that the plot has Alice traveling through time in order to help Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter. Sacha Baron Cohen portrays Time, who will be the story’s primary antagonist. If nothing else, Alice Through the Looking Glass is set up to be a visually stunning movie, even if the trailer does end on a fairly twisted and dark moment.

The new movie isn’t actually directed by Tim Burton, instead he’s simply acting as producer and handing the reins over to James Bobin. Burton’s stalwart companions Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are back, however, as is the rest of the cast from the original Alice in Wonderland, a film which successfully banked over $1 billion at the box office. Sequels are expected to build on the successes of their original film, and Alice Through the Looking Glass looks to be upping the ante when it comes to both the adventure and the amazing visuals that the first film provided. While the basic premise is clear, the visuals are so manic and disjointed that it’s more difficult than usual to figure out how everything in the trailer might fit together. The sequels embracing of the Alice in Wonderland-inspired Jefferson Airplane song, "White Rabbit," only adds to the movie’s psychedelic feel.

Are you looking forward to another trip to Wonderland? Alice Through the Looking Glass arrives in theaters May 27.
