HOLLYWOOD — Cinematic giants Disney and Netflix recently released major trailers this week for some highly anticipated series and features. Oh, and apparently someone decided it was a good idea to make a “Kindergarten Cop” sequel. Here are four trailers that have made their way onto the Internet this week.

‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’

During Monday’s Grammys, we got a look at the sequel to Tim Burton’s imagining of the Lewis Carroll novel, “Alice and Wonderland.” Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” will follow Alice’s return to her previously visited whimsical realm and features Sacha Baron Cohen as the character of Time with Johnny Depp returning to play the Mad Hatter. Cohen looks positively creepy as a psychedelic Burton character. Recently passed away actor Alan Rickman is also featured in the trailer as the voice of the Blue Caterpillar.

Pink’s version of Jefferson Airplane’s psychedelic 1967 single “White Rabbit” makes for the perfect accompanying soundtrack to the teaser.

‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’

It’s been 31 years since Pee-wee Herman went on a big adventure, and now Netflix is ready to give the beloved 80s character a “Big Holiday.” With the help of a stranger played by Joe Manganiello, Pee-wee is going to explore the wide world in a comically small, blue car and experience some high jinks and the occasional bout of well-mannered trouble along the way.

“Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” will be released on Netflix on March 18.

‘Daredevil’ Season 2

Netflix is sending us back to Hell’s Kitchen to visit Matt Murdock and Co. with a strong word of warning: “No good deed goes unpunished.”

The trailer introduces Frank Castle played by “The Walking Dead’s” Jon Bernthal as the antihero Punisher. Much like “Batman vs. Superman,” the trailer makes it seem as though the two may not get along as swimmingly as some might hope.

Oh, and a former paramour, Elektra, appears right at the end of the trailer. Romance. Intrigue. This show has it all.

All 13 episodes of “Daredevil” season two will be available to stream March 18.

‘Kindergarten Cop 2’

There’s not much point in asking why, but apparently there is a new kindergarten cop in town.

With a trailer released Tuesday, audiences got a sneak peek at the Dolph Lundgren-centric sequel that comes 26 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger played detective John Kimble, a police officer who went undercover as a kindergarten teacher while he searched for a drug dealer.

With a similar premise, Lundgren will immerse himself into a school with a “liberal, politically correct environment” in order to recover some sensitive stolen data.

Luckily for all of us, “Kindergarten Cop 2” isn’t making any theater appearances and will go straight to DVD and VOD on May 17.
