A MODERN-DAY RETELLING OF ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND: IN WHICH A LITTLE GIRL NAMED ALICE MOVES TO NYC AND HAS HER WONDERLAND ADVENTURE IN A VIBRANT AND FANTASTICAL VERSION OF THE CITY. STARRING QUVENZHANÉ WALLIS AS ALICE; EVERYONE ELSE IS UP TO YOU AS LONG AS IT’S A DIVERSE CAST! PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPY! \(^O^)/
note: I don’t think I achieved exactly what you wanted, sorry. I tried and this is the only thing that I came up with that I actually liked. So basically, Alice moves to NY with her sister after their parents die (I know, not happy, again sorry). She’s artistic and has quite the imagination. Escaping in her mind whenever she feels stressed or sad. She begins to draw Wonderland and it sort of becomes like an escape. The characters she creates are based on people she knows in real life as well as the situations mirror her problems or adventures in her reality. The story would alternate between reality and the world she created, eventually the problems/conflicts get resolved simultaneously and in the end she doesn’t need to escape to Wonderland anymore.
