Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass has arrived for home viewing just in time for the holidays. I’m sure that we weren’t the only ones singing P!nk’s “Just Like Fire”, which is Alice Through the Looking Glass‘s theme song, all summer long!
The Cheshire Cat gives a hint of what is to come when he says “When the day becomes the night and the sky becomes the sea, When the clock strikes heavy and there’s no time for tea. And in our darkest hour, before my final rhyme, she will come back home to Wonderland and turn back the hands of time.” Visually arresting, Alice Through the Looking Glass takes us not only to Wonderland, but also introduces viewers to the wonder of Underland.
In “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.”
The special features are not to be missed, and they include:
- A Stitch in Time: Costuming Wonderland
- Music Video: “Just Like Fire” by P!nk
- Behind the Music Video
- Filmmaker Audio Commentary by Director James Bobin
- Deleted Scenes
and much more! Alice Through the Looking Glass is now available to own on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD!
