Disney presents the spectacular live adventure Alice Through the Looking Glass.?The all-star cast from the 2010 blockbuster is back with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter who's desperately searching for his family; Anne Hathaway as Mirana, the kind, mild-mannered White Queen; Helena Bonham Carter as Iracebeth, the short-tempered, big-headed Red Queen; and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, the heroine at the heart of the story. Sacha Baron Cohen joins the ensemble as Time, a magical being that is part human, part clock, and the late Alan Rickman?to whom the film is dedicated?is the voice of Absolem, the blue Monarch butterfly who metamorphosed from the blue caterpillar ?Alice in Wonderland.?

How to Throw the Perfect Tea Time:
Here are some fun printables to enjoy with the family.
I was not much of an Alice in Wonderland fan growing up but both the Alice in Wonderland live action films from Disney have completely converted me into a really big fan. The casting choices or so spot on that I can't help but get attached to each and every character. The bonus features are not to be missed an my favorite is A Stitch in Time: Costuming Wonderland segment. I always find it so fascinating to learn about what goes on behind the scenes. The making of movies is truly amazing! For any Alice in Wonderland fan both big and small this movie should be on your wish list.
