The film is presented as a sequel to the 2010 film, Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. In fact, the two films share many of the cast members in common: Mia Wasikowska plays Alice, Johnny Depp the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen while Anne Hathaway stars as the White Queen.
In this new film chapter, Alice passes through a magical mirror that carries her to Underland where she meets her old friends. Here, the White Queen sends the young heroine on a mission back in time to stop the Lord of Time and save the Mad Hatter.
