Time For A Little Madness in Alice Through the Looking Glass
Disney’s enchanting 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.
After slipping through a mirror, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself back in Underland with the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Her friends tell her that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is in a funk over the loss of his family. Hoping to save his loved ones, Alice steals the Chronosphere from Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) to travel into the past. While there, she encounters the younger Hatter and the evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter).
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.
Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” enchanted readers around the world when it was first published in 1865. Set in a curious world full of unusual characters, the book changed the landscape of children’s literature. The release of “Alice Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There” six years later further cemented Carroll’s reputation as one of the world’s most creative and prolific authors.
Disney’s animated version of “Alice in Wonderland” in 1951 introduced a whole new generation to the genius and eccentricity of Carroll’s classic tale, and in 2010, the visually-stunning “Alice in Wonderland” directed by Tim Burton (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Beetlejuice”) which combined live-action, CGI and motion-capture technology, all in 3D, hit theaters. Burton’s visionary reinterpretation went on to become a global blockbuster and cultural sensation. The story and characters are now indelible fixtures in the landscape of pop culture, and have inspired countless stage, television and film adaptations, making an indelible mark on fashion, music, art and literature.
