Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is an American fantasy series directed by Edward Kitsis , Adam Horowitz , Zack Estrin and Jane Espenson and produced by ABC Studios . It is a spin-off of Once Upon a Time ... and is loosely based on Lewis Carroll's novel Alice in Wonderland . It is about Alice who returns to Wonderland to look for her lover.

In Victorian London , Alice tells her psychiatrists about a wonderland that has an invisible cat, a smoking caterpillar, walking playing cards and a genie named Cyrus, whom Alice has fallen in love with. The doctors think she is crazy and Alice begins to doubt it too, although she knows that Wonderland is real.
One day, Will Scarlet and the White Rabbit show up and take Alice to Wonderland. There she meets the red queen who, together with the evil wizard Jafar, keeps her lover Cyrus imprisoned in a cage.
History of origin
At the beginning of February 2013 Deadline.com reported that the original series Once Upon a Time ... is looking for a new Mad Hatter (in the original "Mad Hatter") because the previous actor Sebastian Stan has no time because of other film projects. Furthermore, this should then get its own television series. At the end of March 2013, it was announced that the Mad Hatter is no longer the lead actor, as there were mixed reactions to the news that the role would have to be re-cast. So it was decided to give Alice from Alice in Wonderland the lead role in the spin-off.
In April 2013, a four-scene presentation was filmed that prompted ABC to give the television series the green light for a first season of 13 episodes a month later. With a similar success as the main series, it was planned that each season would contain a self-contained plot. Filming for the actual pilot episode began in late July or early August 2013.
In a preview of the last episode of the first season, ABC referred to this as the series finale; the series finale ran on April 3, 2014.
For the lead role of Alice was Sophie Lowe cast. Other roles got Peter Gadiot as Alice's lover Cyrus , Michael Socha as the Jack of Hearts, Emma Rigby as the red queen and John Lithgow as the voice of the white rabbit. The possibility was also mentioned that Barbara Hershey could continue her role as Cora / Queen of Hearts in the spin-off. In July 2013, Lost star Naveen Andrews was cast in the lead role of the villain Jafar , the wizard from the movie Aladdin . In addition, Keith David and Whoopi Goldberg were hired for pure dubbing roles. In October 2013, Peta Sergeant received a role on the series.
