Alice is back for her latest adventure

James Bobin replaces Tim Burton at the helm for the madcap time-travelling adventure, Alice Through The Looking Glass.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who adapted the first film, largely abandons Lewis Carroll’s 1871 novel, introducing an eccentric new character - Time - in order to facilitate some trippy excursions through the past and present and reveal how the decapitation-happy Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) came to be cursed with an oversized noggin.

Like its predecessor, the sequel spares no expense with the visuals and The paucity of characterisation is even more pronounced, tethering much of the nonsense to Johnny Depp’s wide-eyed theatrics as the Mad Hatter.
