Alice In Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 (7 years ago) fantasy adventure movie directed by Tim Burton, written by Linda Woolverton, and stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp (9 walls), Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway (44 walls), Crispin Glover, Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry. It is an extension of Lewis Carroll's novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The movie uses a technique of combining live action and animation.

In the film, Alice is now 19 years old and accidentally returns to Underland, a place she previously visited 13 years ago. She is told that she is the only one that can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon controlled by the Red Queen. Burton said the original Wonderland story was always about a girl wandering around from one weird character to another and he never felt a connection emotionally, so he wanted to make it feel more like a story than a series of events. He does not see this as a sequel to previous movies or a re-imagining. It premiered in London at the Odeon Leicester Square on Feb. 25, 2010 (7 years ago) and was released in Australia on Mar. 4, 2010 (7 years ago) and the United States and the United Kingdom on Mar. 5, 2010 (7 years ago) through Walt Disney pictures (wallpaper) in 3-D and IMAX 3-D, as well as in regular theaters.

Plot

Alice Kingsley, 19, attends a party at a Victorian estate shortly after the death of her beloved father. She learns that the formal affair is actually an engagement party to eventually wed her into the Ascot family who now own her father's trading firm. Unsure of how to properly reply to Hamish Ascot's proposal, Alice runs away and follows the White Rabbit, Nivens McTwisp. She then falls down a rabbit hole into Underland, a bizarre world she previously visited as a child, although she has no memory of it. It is explained throughout the course of the movie that Iracebeth, the Red Queen, conquered Underland by stealing the ruling crown from her sister Mirana, the White Queen, but Alice will slay the Red Queen's guardian, the Jabberwocky, on the Frabjous Day using the Vorpal Sword. However, a misunderstanding of words from Absolem the Caterpillar makes everyone believe that Alice is the wrong one. The forces of the Red Queen attack and capture McTwisp, Uilleam the Dodo, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee, whilst Alice escapes. The Knave of Hearts, Ilosovic Stayne, informs the Red Queen of Alice's return; the Red Queen orders Alice's capture.

Alice is found by Chessur, a grinning cat, who leads her to The Hatter, Mar. Hare and Mallymkun the Dormouse. As Stayne searches for Alice, The Hatter flees toward the White Queen's castle with a shrunken Alice, but he is caught, leaving Alice and his hat behind. A bloodhound named Bayard, who was forced to work for the Red Queen due to his imprisoned family, aids Alice in sneaking into the Red Queen's castle to rescue The Hatter. McTwisp, now a page for the Red Queen, gives Alice some food which makes her grow to a large size, but she fools the Red Queen into believing she is "Um from Umbridge", and The Hatter is made the Red Queen's hat maker. Alice learns that the Vorpal Sword is hidden in the den of the Bandersnatch, whose eye was removed by Mallymkun earlier. The eye is restored by Alice, making the Bandersnatch choose to side with her and escape from the castle with her and Bayard. Chessur saves Tarrant and Mallymkun from execution, and they lead all of the enslaved Underland creatures to flee the Red Queen's castle. Alice delivers the Vorpal Sword to the White Queen and returns to her normal size, but she remains unsure whether she can kill the Jabberwocky.

Absolem, going into his pupa stage, reminds Alice of her past visit to Underland and gives her the courage and belief to fight the Jabberwocky. On the Frabjous Day, the forces of the White and Red Queens converge on a battlefield to decide the fate of Underland. Alice fights the Jabberwocky and decapitates him, while the Red Queen's forces side with the White Queen, who regains her crown and then banishes her sister and Ilosovic to the outlands forever. Alice returns home by drinking blood of the Jabberwocky. She then refuses Hamish's proposal and becomes an apprentice for Hamish's father with the idea of beginning trade routes with China. The movie ends with Alice sailing away on a ship with Absolem, now as a butterfly, fluttering off and away from her shoulder.

Cast

  • Mia Wasikowska as Alice, a 19-year-old young lady "who doesn't quite fit into Victorian society and structure." Her return to Wonderland "becomes a rite of passage as she discovers her voice and herself." Screenwriter Linda Woolverton researched how young women were expected to behave in the Victorian era and then made Alice the opposite. Although facing pressures to conform to society's expectations, Alice grows into a more strong-willed and empowered heroine who chooses her own path. Alice changes size throughout the story, ranging from a height of merely six inches to a maximum of 20 feet tall. Mairi Ella Challen portrays Alice as a six-year-old.
  • Johnny Depp (9 walls) as Tarrant Hightopp, the Mad Hatter. Tim Burton explained that Depp "tried to find a grounding to the character, something that you feel, as opposed to just being mad. In a lot of versions it's a very one-note kind of character and you know his goal was to try and bring out a human side to the strangeness of the character." The orange hair is an allusion to the mercury poisoning suffered by many hatters who used mercury to cure felt. According to Depp: "I think he was poisoned, very, very poisoned, and it was coming out through his hair, through his fingernails and eyes." The Mad Hatter is Alice's ally. Wasikowska says: "They have an understanding about each other. They both feel like outsiders and feel alone in their separate worlds, and have a special bond and friendship." In an interview, Depp stated that the Mad Hatter is like "A mood ring, his emotions are very close to the surface". Depp and Burton decided that the Mad Hatter's clothes, skin, hair, personality and accent should change throughout the movie to reflect his emotions. Illusionary dancer David Bernal doubles for Johnny Depp (9 walls) during the "futterwacken" sequence near the end of the film.
  • Helena Bonham Carter as Iracebeth of Crims, the Red Queen. Bonham Carter's head is increased in size by three times on screen. The Red Queen is the older sister of the White Queen. She also hates animals, and she proves this by using animals as furniture. Bonham Carter's character is a combination of the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts. The actress took inspiration from her young daughter, Nell. "The Red Queen is just like a toddler, because she’s got a big head and she’s a tyrant. Toddlers have no sympathy for any living creature. That’s our toddler, Nell just bosses us around with no please or thank yous. It’s ‘Mummy, come here’, ‘Mummy, carry me’. It’s all about her, she never considers us."
  • Anne Hathaway (44 walls) as Mirana of Marmoreal, the White Queen. Her character does not require digital manipulation. Hathaway summed up her character with a caption on a magnet of Happy Bunny holding a knife; "Cute but psycho. Things even out." She is very eccentric and dramatic. According to Hathaway, "She comes from the same gene pool as the Red Queen. She really likes the dark side, but she's so scared of going too far into it that she's made everything appear very light and happy. But she's living in that place out of fear that she won't be able to control herself." Hathaway describes her interpretation of the White Queen as "a punk-rock, vegan pacifist", with inspiration drawn from Blondie, Greta Garbo, and the artwork of Dan Flavin.
  • Crispin Glover as Ilosovic Stayne, the Knave of Hearts. He is the head of the Red Queen's Army. Seven feet, six-inches tall, with a scarred face and a heart-shaped patch covering his left eye, Stayne is an arrogant, tricky character who follows the Red Queen's every order. He is the only one capable of pacifying her and calming her dramatic mood swings. "I am the martial element for the Red Queen," says Glover. "The Red Queen has a fair amount of short-tempered reactions to things that people do, and so my character has to be quite diplomatic." His darker side emerges in the shadows of the castle hallways.
  • Matt Lucas as Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Burton said it was a mix of animation and Lucas. "It's a weird mixture of things which gives his characters the disturbing quality that they so richly deserve."
  • Stephen Fry as Chessur, the Cheshire Cat. He is a dapper tabby with the ability to appear and disappear. He is all calm, casual sensuality with a seductive grin that masks his cowardice. It's the cat's disembodied head that first appears to Alice in Tulgey Wood after she has been attacked by the vicious Bandersnatch. He offers to purify the gashes on her arm by licking them. Alice declines, although she allows him to lead her to the Hatter's Tea Party where the Hatter blames him for deserting them on the day the Red Queen seized control of Wonderland. Using his skills and the Hatter's coveted top hat, the Cheshire Cat later finds a way to redeem himself.
  • Michael Sheen as Nivens McTwisp, the White Rabbit. The White Rabbit works for the Red Queen, but is also a secret member of the Underland Underground Resistance. He was sent (by the Hatter) to search for Alice. Sheen stated, "The White Rabbit is such an iconic character that I didn't feel like I should break the mold too much."
  • Alan Rickman as Absolem, the Caterpillar. Rickman was filmed while recording his voice in a studio, but his face was not composited onto the character's face as originally planned.
  • Barbara Windsor as Mallymkun the Dormouse. Burton said that Windsor's voice sealed the deal for her role as the character.
  • Paul Whitehouse as Thackery Earwicket, the Mar. Hare.
  • Timothy Spall as Bayard Hamar, the Bloodhound.
  • Marton Csokas as Charles, Alice's father.
  • Tim Pigott-Smith as Lord Ascot, a man who now owns Charles's trading firm.
  • Lindsay Duncan as Helen, Alice's mother.
  • Geraldine James as Lady Ascot, Lord Ascot's wife.
  • Leo Bill as Hamish, the son of Lord Ascot who proposes to Alice.
  • Frances de la Tour as Imogene, Alice's delusional aunt.
  • Jemma Powell as Margaret, Alice's sister.
  • Eleanor Gecks and Eleanor Tomlinson as Faith and Fiona, a pair of twins who, when pressured by blackmail, reveal to Alice that she is to be proposed to by Hamish.
  • Michael Gough as Uilleam, the Dodo.
  • Imelda Staunton as the Tall Flowers.
  • Christopher Lee as the Jabberwocky, a vicious and nasty dragon that is owned by the Red Queen. An item in the movie called "The Oraculum" suggests that John Tenniel's original design for the Jabberwocky will be used in the film.
