Disney's Alice in Wonderland is almost like a sequel to the original story. The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton of Beauty and the Beast fame. Press notes describe the film as, "Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember."
