“You’ve Been Gone For Too Long Alice”

Alice has been away from her friends for a little too long. Alice proves that even if you move away from home you’ll always have to go back eventually. Wonderland may not be Alices “real” home but it is a place of importance in her life. No matter what, Alice will always end in Wonderland somehow.

Time Can Be Your Enemy

Time may not always be on your side and it never stops. In Alice in Wonderland, Time is a man and evil. But, in real-life time is never ending. Sometimes time is on your side, but a lot of the time it’s not. It’s better to just accept that life is going to keep moving and won’t stop for anyone.

Use Your Imagination

Lewis Carroll brought us the wonderful world of Wonderland in his novel Alice in Wonderland. A world, full of imagination and wonder, mad tea parties and an evil red queen. When you enter Wonderland, you enter a world where anything is possible. So when you watch Alice and Wonderland this summer let your mind wander during and after you enter the theater. I think that Carroll created Wonderland to prove that with a little imagination you can go anywhere.

You Never Know When Your Friends Might Need You

It’s important to always be there for your friends. Alice returns to Wonderland to help the Mad Hatter when he is in need. She faces the evil foe, Time, who controls the Hatter. When your friends are in trouble you need to always be there for them. Who knows maybe one day you’ll need them to be there for you.
