Alice Through the Looking Glass Now Available!
Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Disney’s live action Alice in Wonderland movie. I was pretty hesitant to watch this movie. I wasn’t a big fan of the first one. I’m happy to say that this movie surprised me! I liked a whole lot more than the first one.
The movie brings back all of the original characters, like Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as Mirana (the White Queen), Helena Bonham Carter as Iracebeth (the Red Queen), and Mia Wasikowska as Alice. It also introduces Sacha Baron Cohen (yes, Borat) as Time.
The movie brings together three different story lines. Alice is the captain of her late father’s ship but is losing it because A) she is a woman and B) she turned down to marrying the man who is about to own it.
The Mad Hatter is reminded of his parents, who died many years ago. He is convinced that his family is still out there somewhere and falls into a great depression when he realizes he can’t find them. This is the main story line, as Alice tries to save his family in order to save the Hatter.
The last of the story lines is about the relationship between the White and Red Queen. What made the Red Queen so evil? And how is it basically all of the White Queens fault?
I highly recommend checking this movie out. It is surprisingly delightful and kept my attention. You should also check out dressing up as Alice for Halloween, because her outfit is awesome.
