During our whirlwind weekend of fun at Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration, we were offered the chance to see an advance screening of Alice Through the Looking Glass in 3D. Having not seen the first movie, I didn’t know what I was in for, but was excited to see the movie after listening to the producer the day before during our conference day.
Not knowing what to expect, I wasn’t the least bit confused or lost during the movie. I’m sure it would have been more helpful having seen the first movie but don’t miss this one just because you haven’t seen the first one. We watched the 3D version of the movie but I don’t know how much that actually added to the experience (I’m normally a “regular” movie girl).
The basic plot of the movie is Alice going back “Through the Looking Glass” because her friend Hatter needs her help. He’s found something to give him hope but is heartbroken that no one believes in him or is willing to help. Alice sets out to help her friend and is faced with several challenges/adventures along the way. (Yes I’m fully aware that’s incredibly vague but I don’t want to give away too much – you really need to see the movie!!)
One song in the movie is called “Just Like Fire” and was written just for the movie by P!nk. My kids are in love with the song and always beg me to turn the radio up when it comes on the radio. If you haven’t seen it, check it out:
We also got a sneak peek at some of the costumes worn in the movie at the theater. There were only two sets made and we able to get up close and personal with one set of them. It was shocking the amount of detail on each of them and unbelievable that only two sets were made.
The movie is rated PG and I think my boys who are 11 and 9 would be fine watching this movie. There were a few moments that might have been a bit intense but nothing over the top inappropriate for them in my opinion. My four year old might sit through the movie because there’s enough action to keep her attention but I don’t know that she’d be able to follow along with the story line (she’d make up her own to go along with what she saw).
Are you heading out to see Alice Through the Looking Glass when it opens May 27th?
