Alice (Mia Wasikowska) 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. There she discovers that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) has lost his Muchness, so the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) sends her on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock that powers all time. Returning to the past, she embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.

Critics Consensus: Alice Through the Looking Glass is just as visually impressive as its predecessor, but that isn't enough to cover for an underwhelming story that fails to live up to its classic characters.

Uneven, less-violent sequel has girl-empowerment theme.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Alice Through the Looking Glass is the less-violent sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, based on Lewis Carroll's classic tales. Although Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, and other main characters reprise their roles, Tim Burton isn't the director this time. While there are certainly moments of peril and fantasy violence -- including some close calls when key characters seem on the verge of death -- the sequel is actually less scary/bloodthirsty than its predecessor. There's one comical death (someone's time is literally up) and tense moments when it seems like the past, present, and future have been destroyed. Alice's courage and determination make her a force to be reckoned with, even though she's considered "hysterical" back in 19th-century England. Expect some insults along the lines of "imbecile" and "stupid."
