Alice Through the Looking Glass opens in theaters on May 27th. Thanks to Disney Social Media Moms Celebration this past weekend, we were able to get a glimpse of what exactly is going on behind the looking glass. From viewing some of the behind the scenes to enjoying some of the movie costume displays. It just gets curiouser and curiouser. Let’s take a peak “through the looking glass” together.
Take a Peak Through the Looking Glass
To give you a quick preview of the what to expect in the movie (without giving away the show), Alice is lead back to Wonderland (Underland) via the looking glass in order to save her friend; The Mad Hatter. Hatter has found something that has given him hope, but no one will believe him. After thinking the impossible not to be possible, Alice finds herself on an adventure to save her friend. We also receive an excellent backstory of our two favorite queens in the movie. It all begins to make sense from “Alice in Wonderland”. The two stories are marvelously tide together. Please go into this movie realizing this is more of bringing the two movies “hand-in-hand” rather than following by the book.
If you are a fan of the Walt Disney Pictures version of “Alice in Wonderland”, this will be a perfect marriage of the two films. We finally have an understanding of why some of our beloved characters are who they are. All while enjoying the continued adventures of Alice.
Alice’s character also receives a bit of a “face-lift” from the curious girl we met in “Alice in Wonderland”. She is ready to take on just about every obstacle in her way. The only thing holding her back is realizing that the impossible might be just that…or is it?
“Alice Through the Looking Glass” is rated PG. I would suggest that parents do take caution in bringing young children to the film as there are darker characters that might startle them.
If you have the opportunity, see this movie in 3D. You will have the chance to truly get the full effect of going “through the looking glass”.
I hope you have a moment to enjoy “Alice Through the Looking Glass” this May 27th. Perhaps you will learn that being mad isn’t so crazy at all. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know your thoughts on Twitter.
