Watch: ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Falls Back Into Wonderland in New Teaser

Get ready to head back to Wonderland — or to fall back into it.

Disney released a new short teaser for the upcoming “Alice Through the Looking Glass” on its social media accounts Sunday, showing the first look at the live-action follow-up to “Alice in Wonderland.” In it, Mia Wasikowska as the titular heroine stumbles out of a door in the sky.

“It’s time to go back,” teases the clip.

Wasikowska will star along with returning cast members Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. Sacha Baron Cohen and Rhys Ifans are also joining the franchise as Time and the Mad Hatter’s father, respectively.

The Tim Burton-directed “Alice in Wonderland” was a massive hit when it was released in 2010, pulling in $334.2 million domestically and more than $1 billion worldwide.

James Robin is directing the sequel from a script by Linda Woolverton. Joe Roth, Jennifer Todd and Suzanne Todd produced.

Disney previously released a pair of posters for the upcoming movie in August, giving a glimpse at Wasikowska as well as Depp’s Mad Hatter.
