Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) in Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Alice Through the Looking Glass villain Sacha Baron Cohen feels Johnny Depp is the “only” actor who can bring the Mad Hatter to life in the movies.

Depp will be seen playing the Mad Hatter in Disney’s forthcoming film Alice Through the Looking Glass, which will release in India on Friday.

“There are not many people who could pull off the character of the Hatter that is that extreme, over the top and flamboyant, so Johnny is probably the only person that can pull that off and make it still believable and not absurd. That’s his brilliance, really,” Cohen said in a statement.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Time Burton and Disney’s Alice in Wonderland took the audience on a delightful journey across wonderland. And Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass is set three years after the events of Alice in Wonderland. Alice has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas.
