Here’s an interesting comparison inspired by Caroline McCarten and her blog post: Daydream or Nightmare?.
She says that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is similar to The Wizard of Oz. I began to think, is The Wizard of Oz based on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I mean we can link The Matrix and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, why can’t we link The Wizard of Oz. Alice falls down the rabbit hole, and Dorothy’s house gets sucked up in a tornado. They both have adventures in their different “Wonderlands.”
There is something I am not sure about, but maybe you could answer.
They both meet new people while in their “Wonderlands”, but later we know that the creatures in Dorothy’s adventures are her family. Are the people in Alice’s Wonderland her family? I can link the Cheshire cat and Alice’s cat Dinah, but I’m not sure about anyone else. What’s your opinion? Who else is related to Alice in her Wonderland?
Another movie would be Narnia. The kids enter a whole new world as well, except they are essentially four prophets and Azlan is Jesus. Unlike The Wizard of Oz and Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland the kids are there for a reason, to save Narnia. At the end I thought that Azlan was the man that was taking care of the kids. What’s your opinion? It seems like every story has the same story line shown in a different fashion, just like Campbell said.
