Trailer for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (the spinoff show)!

The doctors think Alice is insane.

This looks very good! Much better than I had expected from the show’s description. Great chemistry between the romantic leads. Sinister doctors. Lots of tension. I’m drawn in — and rooting for Alice — already! What about you?

(Editing to add: If you can’t see the trailer, there’s another copy in the comments below, which should play on more systems.)

  1. What trailer?

    • This page is behaving really strangely for iPad/Safari. I added the YouTube link cause I didn’t see the trailer, just a still photo of Alice sitting at a table being grilled by her doctors.

      Comment for the spinoff…much better special effects than the original show.

      • Oh, okay, thanks.
        Yes, special effects are better. And the set design is very atmospheric. Great production values overall — like movie quality. I hope that holds true throughout the series and that they didn’t just pull out all the stops for the pilot alone.

  2. Just thinking — I like that Alice is a young woman here, and not a child as she was in the Lewis Carroll book. That lets romance into the story (as we’ve seen), and it also lets Alice be a stronger heroine. In the book, Alice was basically bewildered by everything going on around her — which was fine in the book but might wear thin in an ongoing TV series, where you need more dramatic tension. Also, a child actor might not be able to carry the show as the lead. So it was a good decision on the part of the creators to make her older.

  3. Yeah it is better that she is older because if she was a child the plot and storylines would have to be limited.

  4. What bothers me about this spin-off is that TPTB will now be dividing their creative resources between two shows. They already seem to have taken a lot of dramatic shortcuts with OUAT in season 2 and I don’t want to see the show suffer further because the writers and producers are distracted by a new pet project. I’m not anti- Wonderland in theory; I just want Once Upon a Time to be the best it can be.

What do you think?
