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 and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Director James  Bobin  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 is produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd with Tim Burton and 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 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.
