Alice Through the Looking Glass movie quotes bring viewers back to the magical world of Wonderland in a sequel to the 2010 Tim Burton film. The fantasy adventure movie was directed by James Bobin using a screenplay Linda Woolverton adapted from the characters created by Lewis Carroll. Alice Through the Looking Glass opened in theaters in the United States on May 27, 2016.
In Alice Through the Looking Glass, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) has been traveling for three years since she last visited Wonderland. But when she runs into the Caterpillar (voiced by Alan Rickman, in his final film appearance), Alice realizes that she is needed in the fantastical world. So Alice heads to Wonderland, meets up with the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) and Tweedledee and Tweedeldum (Matt Lucas, as both), and learns that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is in dire need of her help.
But to save the Hatter, Alice must take on a new enemy, Time (Sasha Baron Cohen), to go back into the past to prevent the heartbreaking events now tormenting the Hatter. But Time isn't exactly cooperative, plus Alice must deal with old foes, including the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), making this journey to save the Hatter quite the adventure.Alice Through the Looking Glass joined theaters on Memorial Day weekend in 2016 alongside X-Men: Apocalypse, The Nice Guys, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, The Angry Birds Movie and The Lobster.
The Hatter's the Matter
Alice Kingsleigh: Have I come at a bad time?
White Queen: On the contrary, we were afraid that you weren't coming at all.
Alice Kingsleigh: What's the matter?
White Rabbit: The Hatter's the matter.
Tweedledum: Or the matter of the Hatter
Tweedledee: The former
Tweedledum: No, the latter
White Queen: Tweedles
Tweedledum and Tweedledee: He's mad!
Alice Kingsleigh: The Hatter? Yes, I know. That's his marchness. That's what makes him so, him.
Tweedledum: But he's grown darker, less dafter
Tweedledee: Denies himself laughter
Cheshire Cat: And no scheme of ours can raise any sort of smile. We rather hoped you might help us save him.
Alice Kingsleigh: Hatter is my truest friend. If he's in need, I will help him.
Turn Back the Hands of Time
Cheshire Cat: 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.In a rhyme, the Cheshire Cat explains an overview of the plot of the film. Alice needs to return to Wonderland, do a little time travel and save the Hatter. Piece of cake!
The Only Thing Worth Doing
Alice Kingsleigh: The only thing worth doing is what we do for others.Alice shares some of her philosophical thoughts about priorities. For her, the only things she feels are worth doing are those which benefit others.
You Cannot Change the Past
Time: You cannot change the past.Time firmly tells Alice that she cannot change the past, but this is not the answer she accepts. Alice needs to change the past if she is going to save the Hatter and sets out to do just that.
