Plot Summary:
In this wonderful re-telling of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland," Tim Burton goes beyond the cartoons and creates a story that most have have never known. Alice Liddell is on her way to be engaged to a man she does not love, or really like. Alice has a wild imagination, just like her father's, so this marriage is the only means of security for her and her mother. However, before the moment of fate, Alice sees a white rabbit in a waist coat, tapping at his pocket watch, Alice follows him through a tree trunk and falls down a hole to Wonderland. This movie is visually stunning and viewers will love the many characters Alice meets such as: Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dumb, the March hare, the Door Mouse, and the one and only Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp).

According to the Wonderland prophecy, Alice will return to slay the Red Queen's (Helena Bohnman Carter) Jabberwocky to restore the White Queen's (Anne Hataway) as ruler of Wonderland. As the White Queen's champion Alice must remember her true self in order to save Wonderland from the tyranny of the Red Queen or Wonderland will continue to live in darkness. However, Alice cannot confirm that she is the one since this place seems to be but a dream and must outrun villains and outsmart an evil queen to realize that she is capable of anything she puts her mind to.
