Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass is an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories in which Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the visually-stunning world Tim Burton created on screen with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll. The producers are Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd, p.g.a. and Jennifer Todd, p.g.a. and Tim Burton. John G. Scotti serves as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the cast from Burton’s 2010 worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter and introduces new characters played by Rhys Ifans and Sacha Baron Cohen. Also back are the talented voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor and Paul Whitehouse, who are joined by Matt Vogel.
Following the storyline of 2010’s Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass takes place three years after the events of it’s predecessor. A now 22-year-old Alice is the sea captain of her father’s beloved ship Wonder, and after returning home to London she finds that while much has changed while she’s been gone, society’s views haven’t changed at all, and the plans she had for the future may no longer be possible. Alice and her mother attend a reception at the home of Lord Ascot, and after causing a scene and running away, she spots Absolem, now in the form a blue Monarch butterfly, and she follows him through a magical looking glass to Underland. The Mad Hatter believes his long lost family is still alive, and thus he has lost his Muchness. In order to save her dear friend, Alice must seek out Time and his Chronosphere to try to go back to the past and save the Hatter’s family, and Hatter himself.
I was thrilled to be able to see this movie not just once, but twice, before it’s theatrical release. Once again, the vibrant, fantastical world of Underland and Lewis Carroll’s equally enchanting cast of characters come to life on-screen. No longer just about good vs. evil, a bit more complex and engaging, it is a film that the entire family will enjoy. My personal favorites were of course The Mad Hatter, and Time, played by Sacha Baron Cohen. I can’t imagine anyone else playing either of these characters. Alice Through The Looking Glass is rated PG. Go check see it with your family and let me know what you think!
Ah, can’t forget to mention: one of my favorite artists is featured on the soundtrack. Check out P!NK’s video for Just Like Fire below.
