The film that has a huge fanbase is back with a new story, a sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010). Like many adaptations that have been made right from the early 1900’s, the tale from a 1865 novel written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Caroll, this well produced film gives insight into the characters from the first movie Alice in Wonderland, with amazing picture quality and a story line that teaches you the true meaning of time and letting go. A true family entertainer, it not only has a good sense of humour, but also packs some great special effects on a vibrant color palette.

Having returned from her sea voyage to China as a sea captain, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) is faced with many problems. Her male financiers have duped her family and the decisions made by her mother, while she was away have all gone wrong.

Disgusted by all this, Alice sees a familiar face, the blue butterfly that was once the caterpillar Absolem. She decides to leave her mother and stumbles upon a looking glass that magically transports her back to Underland. Once there she encounters Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) who is not the person she used to know. She discovers that the Mad Hatter has lost his “Muchness.” Alice must go back in time using a Chronosphere to save him, thus breaking all the rules that come her way. She meets Time (Sacha Baron Cohen), who warns her of the eminent risk in meddling with the past.

Alice takes on the challenge and is reunited with her beloved childhood friends, namely the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), the White Queen (Anne Hathway), the Tweedles (Matt Lucas), Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and Absolem the caterpillar. Alice embarks on a journey to save not only the Hatter, but others as well, but in doing so she encounters both friends and enemies intent on stopping her from turning the hands of time.
