Alice in Wonderland script
Synopsis: Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 American fantasy film directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay written by Linda Woolverton. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, the film stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, and Mia Wasikowska and features the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall. Based on Lewis Carroll's fantasy novels, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, the film is also a live-action re-imagining/sequel for the 1951 animated film of the same name. The film tells the story of a nineteen-year-old Alice Kingsleigh, who is told that she can restore the White Queen to her throne because she is the only one who can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon-like creature that is controlled by the Red Queen and terrorizes Wonderland's inhabitants.

HAMISH (CONT’D)

Do I amuse you?

ALICE:

No. I had a sudden vision of all the

ladies in top hats and the men wearing

bonnets.

He doesn’t even crack a smile.

HAMISH:

It would be best to keep your visions

to yourself. When in doubt, remain

silent.

Alice’s smile fades. Without her father, she feels there’s

no one like her in the whole world. They dance on. Alice

sees a flock of geese overhead. Distracted, she bumps into

the dancers in front of them.

HAMISH (CONT’D)

Pardon us! Miss Kingsley is

distracted today.

(to Alice)

Where is your head?

ALICE:

I was wondering what it would be like

to fly.

HAMISH:

Why would you waste your time thinking

about such an impossible thing?

ALICE:

Why wouldn’t I? My father said he

sometimes believed in six impossible

things before breakfast.

She laughs at the memory. Hamish looks pained. He sees his

mother nearby. She waves him on impatiently.

HAMISH:

Meet me under the gazebo in precisely

ten minutes.

He goes off. Suddenly two giggling girls appear in front of

Alice. It’s the Chattaways.

FAITH:

We have a secret to tell you.

ALICE:

If you’re telling me, then it’s not

much of a secret.

FIONA:

Perhaps we shouldn’t.

FAITH:

We decided we should!

FIONA:

If we tell her, she won’t be

surprised.

FAITH:

Will you be surprised?

ALICE:

Not if you tell me. But now you’ve

brought it up, you have to.

FAITH:

No we don’t.

FIONA:

In fact, we won’t.

ALICE:

I wonder if your mother knows that you

two swim naked in the Havershim’s

pond.

FAITH:

You wouldn’t!

ALICE:

Oh, but I would. There’s your mother

now.

Alice starts to walk toward her. Fiona blurts out.
