Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

In Victorian England, the young Alice tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a smoking caterpillar and playing cards that talk are just some of the things she's seen during this impossible adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane and her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything.

Character Bio

Cyrus photo
In the land of Agrabah, the dangerous and powerful Jafar visits a merchant, having noticed all the good fortune that has come his way recently, such as that he earns very little income but his home is very well acquainted, that he has a garden of fresh vegetables out back and two camels outside where most men in the market place can barely afford either.

The merchant tries to argue that he has merely been very fortunate and Jafar comments that he has everything a man could possibly wish for, suggesting that he has perhaps met someone who can grant them. Pretending that his good fortune merely comes from family investments, the merchant makes his way into a back room, telling Jafar that he wants to turn off his stove, when in actuality he wishes to alert his genie (Cyrus), that the man with the serpent staff is there, referring to Jafar. Cyrus, concerned, tells the man to leave, but instead, the merchant wishes for Cyrus to be gone; to be as far away as possible. Jafar bursts into the backroom, outraged that he was unable to steel Cyrus, and the genie's bottle is meanwhile transported to Wonderland with him in it, resting in the foot of the hedges of the Queen of Hearts.

Upon returning to Wonderland, Alice manages to track down the White Rabbit and capture him in a bag as proof that she didn't make up such a place after her original visit. She then manages to steal a piece of magical mushroom from the Caterpillar and runs deep into Wonderland, despite his pleas to give it back. She finds herself in the Queen of Heart's maze, being chased by the royal guards, so she and the rabbit eat the mushroom to shrink and avoid being captured.

She hides beneath the hedges in the maze and comes across a golden bottle. She climbs inside to seek refuge, but discovers that a genie is living inside. Cautious at first, Alice threatens to grow herself and break the genie's house. She feels safer once the genie introduces himself as Cyrus and welcomes her kindly. The two begin talking and learn that they're both strangers to Wonderland, causing Cyrus to ask if she needs to go home soon. She explains that she has what she came for, proof that Wonderland is real, and she shows him the White Rabbit. Cyrus wonders if the proof is for a husband, but she tells him its for her father as he thinks she's insane. Cyrus is shocked that Alice is risking her life for somebody who doesn't believe in her, stating that when you love someone, you don't need proof because you can feel it. Alice isn't so sure, claiming that most things from Wonderland are impossible in her land, but he tells her that she found his bottle, so anything is possible. Cyrus then grants Alice three wishes.

Cyrus exits his bottle along with Alice, who lets go the White Rabbit, and he tells her again that his will is hers and that she now has in her possession three wishes, explaining to her the four laws of magic (he cannot be asked to kill someone, bring back the dead, change the past or make someone fall in love). The two of them later get a drink together, where Cyrus tells Alice that being a genie means that he never stays in one place for too long and people are always after him. She wonders if anyone is after him currently, and he warns her against Jafar, a dangerous man with a serpent staff who he hopes she never meets.

After telling her of his skills with a sword, Cyrus gives Alice an origami rose which smells like real roses, due to the paper it's made out of being magic. Alice asks the genie if he would teach her how to use a sword, and he promises to do so; during her first lesson, she learns rather fast, and her and Cyrus end up kissing by the end of it. One morning when the two of them wake up, Cyrus asks Alice to make her wishes so that she may move on as he's scared he's falling in love with her. Alice promises to never use her wishes so that she can be with him forever, and the two of them decide to bury Cyrus' bottle together in order for him never to be summoned by anyone ever again. Unbeknownst to them, however, the White Rabbit sees them as they bury it, meaning he knows the bottle's location.

A long while later, having now fallen in love, Cyrus and Alice visit the Boiling Sea, where they watch it from a ledge on the rocky cliffs. Alice comments on how amazing it is in person, and Cyrus tells her she's the same. As the two look lovingly at each other, Cyrus apologizes and explains that he was always the one granting wishes, not making them. Alice asks what he's talking about, so he explains that throughout his time as a genie, all he wanted to be was free, but now he has another wish. He gets down on one knee, trying to mimic a proposal from Alice's land, but before he can give a speech, Alice agrees cheerfully. The two of them embrace in a kiss and then Cyrus shows Alice his necklace, which is glowing red, stating their hearts are entwined, so from now on he'll know when she is near.

However, this moment is soon ruined when the Red Queen arrives with her armed guards. The Red Queen attempts to capture Cyrus, but he and Alice fight off the guards. When it seems like they've won, the Red Queen gives a flick of her hand, pushing Cyrus backwards and down into the Boiling Sea. Alice watches in horror, screaming his name as he falls to his apparent death. However, unbeknownst to her, Jafar is waiting on the cliffs with his magic carpet and he catches Cyrus, taking him prisoner.

Alice is visited by the Knave of Hearts in her asylum back in a land without magic, being told by him that Cyrus is still alive. With Will's help, Alice is able to escape the facility, before undergoing a procedure that shall cause her to lose her memories, and jumps down a portal created by the White Rabbit, who aids in her escape. Now back in Wonderland, Alice is disappointed to hear that the White Rabbit didn't actually see Cyrus as stated, but rather he heard it from the untrustworthy Dormouse. Still believing he could be alive, Alice decides to make it to the Mad Hatter's house anyway, as that's where he was last supposedly seen. When she makes it, however, Cyrus is nowhere to be found, but outside, Alice finds his magical necklace and takes this to mean that he's still alive somewhere. Elsewhere in Wonderland, Cyrus senses that Alice has discovered his necklace and is shown to be locked in a large cage hanging from a long chain in Jafar's palace. As Jafar returns to his prisoner, Alice, Will and the White Rabbit are seen to be continuing their search for Cyrus.

Cyrus wakes up with a start in his cage when he again feels Alice's presence in Wonderland via his magical necklace, which causes the old prisoner in another nearby cage to ask him if he's alright. Later, Cyrus is inspecting the burn on his arm and the same old prisoner, who knows it's from his cage's bars, realizes why Cyrus' is the only cage made from silver, and Cyrus explains that genies and silver "don't mix". To take his mind off the pain, the prisoner attempts to continue the makeshift game of chess he started, but Cyrus says that he has something else to do, before going on to write a message on a piece of magic paper he owns. He soon fashions it into an origami swan and forces his hand through the bars, much to his discomfort and pain, telling the swan to find Alice. After it flies away, Jafar returns to check on his prisoner and the Red Queen stops by to announce that she has procured Cyrus' bottle, which levels the playing field between her and Jafar. Meanwhile, Cyrus' swan finds Alice and delivers the message, and she sends one back assuring her true love that she's coming for him.

Cyrus' cage is lowered so that he may witness Jafar and the Red Queen enjoying a banquet together. Jafar then reveals the dinner's centerpiece: the origami swan he sent to Alice. The dark magician tells Cyrus that his true love wrote back: "I'm coming for you!", but this does not worry him, and he and the Red Queen begin looking for a way to force Alice to make one of her wishes. The two villains search through a book of magical monsters, wondering which would be the best to send after Alice, and Jafar notices Cyrus' concerned reaction when they talk about the Bandersnatch; he decides that this shall be the beast that they send. However, the Bandersnatch is easily killed by Alice and Will as it's, as Cyrus taught her, dumb and can barely see. Cyrus then tells his friend in another cage that his plan worked, as if they sent a Bandersnatch after Alice, then she can surely handle it with ease.
