Last month, we reported the unfortunate news that screen legend Alan Rickman had passed away at the age of 69, after battling cancer. While we won't get to see him on screen, the beloved actor's final performance is yet to come, returning to voice Absolem, the Blue Caterpillar in this summer's Alice in Wonderland sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, hitting theaters May 27. Today, the Disney Twitter feed debuted a new TV spot which features this beloved actor's voice, along with plenty of new footage.
Last week, we reported that Disney will have a huge presence at this weekend's Super Bowl, with the studio expected to promote a number of their upcoming movies during the big game. While no specific titles were mentioned, Alice Through the Looking Glass could certainly be one of them, especially considering that a few months have passed since the first trailer was released. While Disney didn't specify whether or not this is their actual Super Bowl TV spot, it's certainly possible.Read More
Although only one month has passed in 2016, fans have already had to say goodbye to a number of beloved Hollywood icons in such a short period of time. One of the many legends we lost last month was Harry Potter star Alan Rickman, who passed away at the age of 69 after battling cancer. Over the weekend, Harry Potter fans from around the world gathered at Universal Studios Orlando, where a new video was taken, courtesy of Inside the Magic, to pay tribute to the late actor by raising their wands.
This homage to Alan Rickman took place at A Celebration of Harry Potter 2016, an annual event that has taken place ever since the theme park opened at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section back in 2010. Since this was the first public event that took place after the late actor's death, it's not surprising that fans turned out in droves to say goodbye to the actor, who played Severus Snape in all eight Harry Potter movies. While they weren't seen in this video, other franchise stars such as Rupert Grint and Matthew Lewis were present for the Expo portion of the weekend's festivities.Read More
