These descriptions seem to pay some homage to the comics, while still implementing new aspects of the character's mythos. In the comics, The Mad Hatter, first appearing in 1948, is a scientist who invents devices to influence, and manipulate, the minds of his victims. The character was created to reflect "The Hatter" from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
This news follows other new additions to the cast including Maggie Geha as Poison Ivy, James Carpinello as Mario Falcone, and Jamie Chung as Valerie Vale. Stay tuned
When it comes to the “behind the sofa” entertainment of their youth, older readers will have plenty to talk about, from the Child Catcher to the Daleks. For kids, the splashes of horror in otherwise family friendly films are what teach them how not to be scared. In recent years, we've seen an even greater resurgence of the horror genre in animated movies.
Features like Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania evoked the tropes of classic horror to either pastiche or parody expectations, but we'd go so far as to say that Laika has been stridently leading the charge for horror movies aimed explicitly at a family audience. The Boxtrolls is the third stop-motion feature from the studio, following 2012's zombie movie ParaNorman and 2009's Coraline, which is probably the scariest family film of this century.
This week my choice came down to two movies directed by a prolific no-budget auteur named Dennis Devine: Don’t Look in the Cellar and Alice in Murderland. (Fun fact: In 2000 Devine directed a movie called Bloodstream. Full circle!) Knowing both movies would likely be nigh unwatchable, I decided to choose whichever was shorter. As a result, I won’t be looking in the cellar this week. At 87 minutes it's a full minute longer than Alice and who has time for that?
The story, insofar as it's coherent, is this: A seven-woman sorority decides to throw a
To clarify something we've seen some confusion about -- the female villain in "Ouat in Wonderland" is the Red Queen (Emma Rigby, pictured above), not to be confused with the Queen of Hearts, who we all know is Cora, Regina's mother. In Carroll's books, the Queen of Hearts is from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and the Red Queen is from "Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There."
You may have noticed the Red Queen's chess piece palace (which is awesome) -- that's because she is the Red Queen from a chess game. Looking-Glass Land
The story of a grown-up Alice (Sophie Lowe), who has been haunted by her memories of Wonderland ever since visiting as a little girl, features sumptuous visuals and a couple of strong central performances from Lowe and Michael Socha as the Knave of Hearts. It's a little weaker on the villainous side of things, unfortunately, and its central romance is less than swoon-inducing at the outset. All the better to create a triangle, perhaps.
"Wonderland" isn't a spinoff of "Ouat" per se, at least not in the way we usually think of them. "Once
To believe in something, to stand for something, can make a man look like a fool to skeptics and sophisticates, but that doesn't worry Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, creators of the hit ABC fairy-tale drama "Once Upon a Time" and now its spinoff, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," premiering Thursday, Oct. 10.
In a dark time, Kitsis and Horowitz have staked their claim in the light.
"When we started to do 'Once,' " he tells Zap2it, "[we learned that] everything that's cool in the world is something you have to s*** on. It's a lot cooler to say you hate something than to say you're for something. Everything was bleak and dark. Adam and I wanted to write a show that gave us the feeling we did when Charlie got
The new series was created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz, Zack Estrin and Jane Espenson for ABC Studios, based on author Lewis Carroll's fairy tale classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland":

"...setting in motion their adventures into 'Wonderland'..."
