Hey, remember when Alice in Wonderland made a billion dollars at the box office?

The star-studded sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through The Looking Glass has released its first full trailer and it is as visually beautiful as one would expect from a Tim Burton production. Director James Bobin certainly has maintained that Burton style of madness in set design.  Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter are back to reprise their roles with the addition of Sacha Baron Cohen as the movie’s more sinister character of Underland.
