Long ago, as a little girl, while feeling bored and drowsy, I sat on the lap of my grandmother.I traveled through the rabbit hole, as my grandmother read from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. There were no pictures, only those from the magical place that filled my mind with a world of imagination and peculiar creatures.
Years later, I'd realize how influential this story was in my life as I read it to my children.
I heard its impact while at the 1989 World Tour concert of Taylor Swift as she sang, "Wonderland".
Then there was yesterday, May 9th.
Hold on to your hats! Disney's highly anticipated Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, has the Red and White Queens Clashing, turning Underland a shade of P!nk!
Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass takes audiences on a new adventure. There's typical Disney magic and characters with the original cast, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, Anne Hathaway and there are new additions, Sacha Baron Cohen and music performed by P!nk!
One only has to look back to Frozen to know that Disney has incredible soundtracks. Music that has everyone singing along. P!nk does not disappoint. Her powerful voice for the movie's anthem "Just Like Fire" is amazing.
The video features P!nk in an elaborate lace gown, topped with a thorny crown, standing on a giant chess board. Her trademark voice a reminder that we've missed P!nk, since she took a break in 2012 after her multi-platinum album The Truth About Love.
It's hard to say whether it's P!nk complementing Disney or the other way around, with the video. It even features cameos from P!nk's husband Cary Hart and their daughter, Willow.
Rediscover the magic of Alice in a new way with P!nk's new video.
#ThroughTheLookingGlass is based on the children's stories by Lewis Carroll, however, it will appeal to tweens and adults as an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters as Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.
Through the Looking Glass Movie Synopsis:
Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father's footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Sheen), Absolem (Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself.
The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends - and enemies - at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.
Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D, and IMAX® 3D, Disney's "Alice Through the Looking Glass" opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
