Nineteen-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.
Despite the fact that there have been many other Alice in Wonderland movies, Tim Burton has said he never felt an emotional connection to the story and always thought it was a series of some girl wandering around from one crazy character to another. (In fact, the original books by Lewis Carroll are part of a once-popular fantasy genre in which the character does nothing except wander around from one crazy encounter to another. Those movies which replicated this were being true to the spirit of the original books.) So with this, he attempted to create a framework, an emotional grounding, which he felt he never really had seen in any version before. Tim said that was the challenge for him, to make Alice feel like a story, as opposed to a series of events.
Charles, you have lost your senses? This picture is impossible.
Charles Kingsleigh: Precisely. Gentlemen, the only way to achieve the impossible, is to believe it's possible.
When they are lining up before going into battle and are waiting for Alice to arrive, the reins of the White Queen's horse are hanging down. The shot cuts to the White Queen and Alice talking. When it cuts back to show the horse the reins are over the neck of the horse.
In the opening credits the Cheshire Cat can be seen smiling in the form of a cloud overlaying the moon.
Also released in a 3D version.
