Alice in Wonderland

Synopsis: Classic tale of a girl named Alice who follows a white rabbit down a hole into Wonderland, where she can change sizes by eating and drinking and animals talk. After escaping the disturbing Queen of Hearts, she finds that she has ended up on the other side of the looking glass in Looking Glass Land and that there is a mind-created Jabberwocky after her. With the advice of a wise owl and royal chess pieces on her mind, she ventures home, vowing to grow up in this two-part movie which remains most faithful to the original stories written by Lewis Carroll.

Thank you, Alice.

You've been a big help.

I wish I could have tea

with everyone.

I really wish I could.

Tea is for grownups,


But, Mother,

when will I be grown up?

Oh, be patient, Alice.

Teatime for you

will come soon enough.

Now, why don't you

go outside and keep

your sister company?

Yes, Mother.


You know,

I really do wish

you'd tell me,

just what good is a book

without any pictures?

It looks so dull.

I mean, it really does.

You'll understand soon enough,

when you grow up.

Look, I'm already

seven and a half.

I think

that's quite grown up.

And I really do wish

you'd stop talking to me

as though I was a child.

But you are

still a child, Alice.

You can't really think

that you're a grownup.

Yes, I do. Almost.

I mean, just how on Earth

am I supposed to know

when I'm grown up or not?

Would you mind

telling me that?

There are a lot of ways

to know that.

Well, then tell me.

At least a hint.

Well, for one thing,

you have to be much taller

to be grown up.

And you won't cry as much.

You are a bit

of a crybaby.

I am not.

I don't cry much at all.

Hardly ever.

Well, when you've grown up,

you'll cry much less

than you do now.

And one of the best ways

to know if you've grown up

is when Mother asks you

to join the rest

of the grownups for tea.

Dinah, dear,

you think I'm grown up,

don't you?

Oh, dear! Oh, dear!

I shall be too late.

Mr. Rabbit!

Mr. Rabbit!

Mr. Rabbit!

Oh, my ears and whiskers,

how late it's getting!

Mr. Rabbit!

Mr. Rabbit!

Wait! Wait!

That's strange.

I wonder how many there are.

How am I ever

gonna get home?

I can't imagine

who could fit through there.

Unless it was for a mouse.

This must fit

that little door.

Oh, how beautiful.

This must surely

be the way home.

I can't get through.

It's all very well

to say, "Drink Me."

I'll look first and see

whether it's marked poison

or not.



Oh, I... I feel so strange.

Oh, my.


What's happening to me?

I'm shrinking!

I'm so small.

So very small.

But now, at least,

I'm the right size

for going through

the little door.

Oh, how stupid!

How really stupid!

I've forgotten the key

way up on top of that table.

Come on now, Alice,

there's no use

starting to cry.

Stop it this moment.

Stop! Stop! Stop!

Now, what's this?

"Eat me."

That's certainly

a strange thing

to write on a cake.

But I will eat it.

Perhaps it'll make me

grow bigger.

And If it makes me

grow bigger,

then I can reach the key.

But if it makes me

grow a little smaller,

then I can creep

under the door.

Bigger or smaller?

Which way?

Oh, I think

I'm staying the same size.


Oh, something is happening.

Curiouser and curiouser.


Now I'm opening up

like a telescope.

Ooh. Goodbye, feet!

I'm so big, now I'll never

get through that little door.

I wanna go home.

I wanna go home.

I wanna go home.

Oh, the Duchess,

the Duchess!

Won't she be savage

if I kept her waiting?

If you please, sir.

Sir, Rabbit!

What's happening now?


It's the fan

that's making me shrink!

Oh, that was a narrow escape.

Oh, now I've fallen

into the sea.

But this isn't the sea.

These are my tears

when I was nine feet tall!

Oh, I wish

I hadn't cried so much.

I should be

punished for it now,

for being drowned

in my own tears.

Won't that be a queer thing?

However, everything's

been queer today.

What is that?

It must be a walrus

or a hippopotamus!

For goodness' sake,

stop crying.

Stop crying!

Don't cry anymore!



Do you know

the way out of here?

I'm a stranger here myself.

Lewis Carroll
