Did you love Alice in Wonderland? Then your gonna love Alice Through the Looking Glass. The kids and I arrived at the
The kids and I arrived at the Xscape Blakenbaker theater here in Louisville (wonderful theater, big comfy leather electric reclining seats, lots of room, and very friendly staff. I highly recommend it) First thing we did was to get our 3D glasses and head to our seats. Once the seats were taken care of we headed to the concession stand for drinks and of course popcorn. What’s a movie without popcorn right?
Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, 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 spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: ZanikHightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Sheen), Absolem (Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself.
The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out. After you watched Alice in Wonderland did you have questions like ” How did Mirana (the White Queen) who is so sweet and nice end up with a mean and nasty sister like the Red Queen?” “How did the Red Queen’s head become so big?” “Did the Mad Hatter have a family? If so, where are they?” Well, wonder no more it is all is explained in Alice through the looking glass!
What was our favorite scene of the movie? ALL OF THEM!! Lol, really this movie was fantastic! Between the talented cast of actors, a wonderfully written script, the 3D and the special effects, there is only one word that would best describe this film “WOW”!!! Grab the family, head on out to the theater and see this film. Your gonna love it!
