I’m super excited that Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass will be in theaters just 10 days from now, but I am even MORE excited (like crazy super excited) that next week I’ll be walking down the red carpet at the Alice Through the Looking Glass premiere! It has been a long wait since Disney’s Alice in Wonderland waaaaaay back in 2010, but the next adventure is here and reunites the amazing cast including Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter. It just wouldn’t be the same without them, would it? Along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall, there will be a few new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
What’s the “story” for Through the Looking Glass you ask? Well, Alice has spent the past three years sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out. See the trailer:
While I won’t be heading to the fantastical world of Underland, I will be heading to the fantastical world of Hollywood. Besides the magical experience of walking the red-carpet, I’ll have a chance to interview talent from the film and the filmmakers. I don’t quite yet know which ones they will be, but I’ll be sure to let you know! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and follow the hashtag #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent and I will share there as soon as I find out!
But that’s not all we’ll be doing! We’ll also be attending a special press day for the in-Home release of ZOOTOPIA (available on Blu-ray and Digital HD on 6/7) where we’ll have a chance to interview members of the creative team behind the making of the movie, including Directors Byron Howard & Rich Moore and Raymond Persi (Story Artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios and the voice of “Flash”) and get a chance to step into the recording booth to voice a character from the film! That is going to be so fun!!
As you may remember from my Zootopia review, I LOOOOOOOOOVE this movie and I can’t wait to talk with some of the creative geniuses behind it.
