Take in the wild and beautiful ride of Alice Through the Looking Glass

Sponsored post DSC01890
As you may know, I have a really big soft spot for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. Maybe it’s that I watched the animated version hundreds of times growing up or maybe it was that Lewis Carroll’s books were some of my absolute favorites, but I loved the curious {and couriouser} world of Alice. So, as soon as I heard that a sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland {2010} was planned, I knew it would be one that we had to see.

But, then at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, Suzanne Todd gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of James Bobin’s movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Hearing some of the backstory and all that went into bringing it to life made me even more excited to see the film. Knowing how much work went into each and every scene and how deliberate all the little details are made me so excited to see how it all came together on the big screen.

The answer to that is that it came together beautifully and intricately. So beautiful that I didn’t want to look away for a second for fear of missing something, and so intricate that I know I could watch it dozens of times and catch something {or many somethings} new each time I saw it.

But for this viewing, I loved being immersed in the story and finding myself transported through space and time back to Alice’s Underland by way of the looking glass. I loved seeing a little more about Wit’s End, a town that is filled to the brim with beautiful Victorian beauty, curious creatures, bigger than life characters, and enough color to fill a small country, and I loved the back story to many of the familiar characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories.

We see the relationship between the Red Queen {Iracebeth} and the White Queen {Mirana} deteriorate in a sisterly feud that grows to include nearly all of Wit’s End. In this feud’s path is the Hightopp family, and at the center is the Mad Hatter. AliceThroughTheLookingGlass56fac374d5851
In the film, Alice must put aside her own troubles and her fear of losing her father’s ship, the Wonder, and help her dear friend Hatter come to terms with the fate of his own father. His search for his family leads Alice to find the Chronosphere, which she steals from Time {played brilliantly by Sacha Baron Cohen} to alter the past in hopes of changing the present. AliceThroughTheLookingGlass573ba043550e1With Alice at the wheel of the Chronosphere, she uses her expertise gained as captain of her father’s ship and takes us on a wild ride to save all of Underland. What we find out is that playing with time and space can have disastrous effects, not just for Wit’s End, but also for Time itself.

If you are a fan of Alice like we are, this is definitely a trip you want to make sure you take. Sure, it’s going to be great to watch over and over at home so you can take in all the little details, but seeing it on the big screen shouldn’t be missed. AliceThroughTheLookingGlass56c20221afcf7
