Following 2010’s Alice in Wonderland from Tim Burton, this sequel sees Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returning to the world of Underland to travel back in time to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway return, starring alongside new faces Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s father and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time himself. From the director of 2011’s The Muppets (and much of TV's Flight of the Conchords).
Alice Kingsleigh has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), Absolem (Alan Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and the Mad Hatter, who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.
