The teaser, which is set to air during Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, is narrated by Rickman's character, the Blue Caterpillar, and tells a dark story of what has happened to Wonderland in Alice's (Mia Wasikowska) absence.
"You've been gone too long, Alice," Rickman's voice intones with the dire gravitas only he could ever fully embody. "There are matters which cannot be neglected."

Alan Rickman's life through photos:
"Alan was a towering person, physically, mentally and as an artist," the 70-year-old actress said. "He was utterly distinctive, with a voice that could suggest honey or a hidden stiletto blade, and the profile of a Roman Emperor. He was also a great friend, generous and social. He will be very missed by many."
Mirren was joined by many fans, friends and former co-stars, who took to Twitter to share tributes and memorials to the celebrated star. Check out the video below to see some of the outpouring of love honoring Rickman's life and career.
