Years after the events of the first two adventures, Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now nineteen years old, attends a party only to find she is about to be proposed to. She runs off, following the White Rabbit into a hole and ending up back in Wonderland, a place she visited in a similar manner 12 years before. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen overthrew her sister, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway). The creatures of Wonderland, such as the Cheshire Cat , Tweedledee and Tweedledum (Matt Lucas) and the March Hare (Noah Taylor), ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them. With the help of the White Queen, the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the Caterpillar (Alan Rickman), Alice starts seeing flashbacks of her original visit, back when she was seven.
