Llanelli Star - - FILM REVIEWS -

FROM an early age, June Bai­ley (voiced by Bri­anna Den­ski) has spun tall tales with her mother (Jen­nifer Garner) about a mag­i­cal theme park run by her menagerie of stuffed an­i­mals.

When Mrs Bai­ley falls ill and seeks hos­pi­tal treat­ment, June stum­bles upon the vine-cov­ered ru­ins of the real Won­der­land.

The plucky girl joins forces with the crea­tures there to re­store the park be­fore an army of Chim­pan­zom­bies can tear apart the fix­tures and fit­tings and fling them into a swirling vor­tex called the Dark­ness.

For­mer Timelord Tom Baker and so­cial me­dia dar­lings Joe Sugg and Cas­par Lee per­form ro­bust vo­cal du­ties for the UK ver­sion of the film, trad­ing ver­bal quips in the guise of an­thro­po­mor­phised crit­ters with Hol­ly­wood stars Mila Ku­nis, Garner and Matthew Brod­er­ick.

Above and be­yond the eye candy, the film is dis­ap­point­ingly short of awe and wonder.
