Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland after finding success in the real world as a ship's captain, only to discover that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is suffering from severe depression. Eager to help her friend, she steals a time-travel device called the Chronosphere and journeys into the past in order to save the Hatter's family. Elsewhere, the deposed Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) also attempts to go back in time and heal old wounds. Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Michael Sheen co-star. James Bobin (The Muppets) directed this time around, taking over from Tim Burton (who helmed 2010's Alice in Wonderland).~Jack Rodgers

I had not read the book so I have no familiarity with the story line. Time travel movies always have confusing, continuity concerns and the risk of "Destroying the known universe", and this movie was rather predictable in all of that. Still, it was a fun movie to watch and the time-travel elements make you need to really watch this more than once to really keep track of what is going on.
The movie does carry over an element of the first film and fully shows what kind of damage and hurt can be done through being dishonest, especially when it comes to tarts.
I purchased this along with Alice in Wonderland. I'm ensuring I have movies before the politics going on takes things away.
