Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass In Theaters Now
Recently as part of the Disney’s Social Media Mom’s Celebration we were treated to a screening of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass. As you know already, I am quite a big Disney movies fan but I’m new to the whole live action flicks. I never did end up seeing the original Alice In Wonderland live action movie, but I am completely a fan now. I was won over with this movie within the first ten minutes of the film. In this all-new spectacular adventure Alice travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter who believes his family is still alive somewhere. Only Alice can get the job done and try to change the events that took place many years ago.
One of my favorite characters in the movie is Time. He is definitely a perfect representation of what we think of time and he advice that he gives throughout the movie holds very true in reality. He says, “You can’t change the past, but you can learn from it”. Yes, you can. As I have seen in my own life, you definitely cannot go back and change the past, but you can learn from it so you can makes much better decisions if given the chance. There are so many jokes about time. I can’t give them all away, but one teaser would be when Chesire Cat arrives late and jumps onto the character Time. He then says, “I’m not late, I’m actually ON Time!”. So, if that kind of humor is something that makes you chuckle, you will definitely be a fan of this movie.
We had the pleasure of meeting and listening to producer, Suzanne Todd who gave us all the back stories on just how real the filming was and how tough it was to focus with so much green screen time. But, alas, that is what makes Alice Through the Looking Glass an amazing movie and one you will definitely want to see with your friends and family. Don’t listen to the critics, listen to your heart and go and see this movie. You will find and incredible movie and story line, a lot of jokes and definitely some conversation starters that you can discuss with your kids or friends when the movie ends. What if you could go back and change time. What would be the one event you would change? How can you learn from the past? No matter how young or old we are, we are constantly learning from the moments that have just slipped through our fingertips. I found this movie to be so much more than what was just on the screen before me. Suzanne Todd also graced us by bringing along one of only two sets of costumes. The original costumes were within reach to actually get an up close look at the delicate details that were sewn into each piece.
In 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 to save her friend the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings a unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in “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, Matt Lucas 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: Zanik Hightopp (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 three years sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
