A new teaser for the second Alice In Wonderland movie has been released and features a voice over by the late Alan Rickman.

Rickman voiced Absalom, The Blue Caterpillar in the first film, which came out in 2010. In a short clip released by Disney, the Harry Potter star's distinctive voice can be heard.

In the video for Alice Through The Looking Glass, Rickman says: "You've been gone too long, Alice. There are matters that cannot be neglected. Hurry."

Rickman passed away on January 14 after a battle with cancer. Alice Through The Looking Glass was one of the actor's final projects.

The film, directed by James Bobin, will also star Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Anne Hathaway and Mia Wasikowska as Alice.

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen also joins the cast, playing the part of Time in the Disney franchise.

Alice Through The Looking Glass will be released in New Zealand this July.
