I am always amazed at the creative ability to “repurpose” a story that has been told and retold – Will this version be a hit? Not sure but for now it is in my opinion joyful eye candy and I am not so secretly hoping it will take the story in a new and exciting direction .
“Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
