On Thursday, the first major trailer for Through The Looking Glass hit the Internet in a beautiful, brightly-colored verse, getting us all psyched for second Alice adventure. And, since it borrows it's name from the actual sequel to Alice's Adventures In Wonderland , you have to wonder — how close will Through The Looking Glass be to the original book? Well, there are two answers to that question. The first is, "there's no way to be completely certain until the movie comes out," and the second is, "not very. It's primarily a matter of Time: he's a brand new character and not really in the book, whereas in the movie he seems to be the primary antagonist. That alone is going throw of the entire plot.
The sequel to Disney's live-action adaptation of Alice in Wonderland opens on Friday, and parents with young kids who might not have the attention span for the original classic books might be tempted to use the films as a gateway to Wonderland. But those hoping to see an Alice Through the Looking Glass based on the book will be sorely disappointed. Yes, Through the Looking Glass is based on Lewis Carroll's book, but it seems that every film adaptation of the books brings us farther and farther away from an accurate representation. While Disney's animated Alice in Wonderland strove for accuracy, it got overly caught up the kookiness of Alice's new friends, leaving her with no character herself, as one of the original writers lamented to The New York Times. Two books about a girl named Alice became a movie about a wacky cat, a pompous queen, and a garden full of singing flowers. But the live action movies made no effort to stick to the original stories, instead functioning as Tim Burton fever-dream sequels. Seven-year-old Alice from the book became a year-old, returning to Wonderland now called Underland to slay the Red Queen.
