Back at D23 Expo, earlier this year, actress Mia Wasikowska made a surprise appearance for her forthcoming sequel to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, next Summer's Alice Through the Looking Glass. Now, after a week of short teasing, Disney have finally unveiled the first trailer for the film.

The film will act as both a sequel but also a prequel, of sorts, to its predecessor as whilst the story will pick up where that one left off, Wasikowska revealed that something has happened to Alice's good friend Hatter (Johnny Depp) which leads her on a trip throughout time in which she'll come across younger versions of some of the characters, including herself, and also find out just how the Mad Hatter became... well... mad.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several 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.
