The sequel to the 2010 live action blockbuster “Alice In Wonderland” is proving to be just as hysterical and fascinating as its predecessor, if the “Alice Through The Looking Glass” trailer song is to be judged. The latest preview of the movie shows up some exciting themes. The fans can see how the film will discuss gender roles.
The trailer highlights a doctor telling Alice that she has “hysteria” because he is unable to believe that Alice was actually just on a mission back in Wonderland. Hysteria is a medical condition of extreme emotional pressure once attributed to many women back in the day. The song summarizes both the craziness of Wonderland and the Victorian gender roles of the time, and it’s recorded by P!

According to Bustle, the song shown in the trailer is a cover of one of Jefferson Airplane’s most popular tracks, called “White Rabbit.” “White Rabbit” was written by Grace Slick, the lead vocalist. According to the official website of Jefferson Airplane, Slick wrote “White Rabbit” as a blow at parents who read their children stories like “Alice in Wonderland.” A story where the leading girl Alice uses various stuff to change herself. Now there is no wonder why these kids do drugs when they grow up.
