Celebrate a very merry un-anniversary in the whimsical,
fun-filled world of Walt Disney’s masterwork of animation, music and fantasy
— ALICE IN WONDERLAND SPECIAL UN-ANNIVERSARY EDITION, a 2-disc set complete
with never-before-seen bonus features. Follow Alice as she chases the White
Rabbit on a magical journey into the fantastical world of Wonderland. It’s a
topsy-turvy place that gets “curiouser and curiouser” as Alice’s madcap
adventures introduce her to some truly unforgettable characters — the Mad
Hatter, March Hare, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Cheshire Cat, the Queen of
Hearts and more. Filled with spectacular songs and dazzling animation, ALICE
IN WONDERLAND SPECIAL UN-ANNIVERSARY EDITION is a timeless classic your entire
family will love.|At one point Walt Disney considered using a combination of
live action and animation to tell the story. His plan was to have real actors
play Alice and her sister at the introduction and conclusion of the film, with
the rest of the film being an animated dream.|The movie took five years to
complete and cost $3 million.|At one point, “Brave New World” author Aldous
Huxley worked on the script for the movie.|Disney had been thinking about
making this movie since 1933, when he considered making a live-action version
starring Mary Pickford, then later, Ginger Rogers. He shelved the project
after Paramount filmed a version of the story. Walt Disney seems to
have had a special affection for Lewis Carroll’s “Alice” stories. “Alice’s
Wonderland” (1923), a short about a live-action little girl in a cartoon
world, led to his first successful series, the “Alice” comedies (collected on
Walt Disney Treasures: Disney Rarities–Celebrated Shorts, 1920s -1960s).
During the early ’30s, he talked about making an animation/live-action feature
of “Alice in Wonderland” with Mary Pickford in the title role. But almost two
decades would elapse before Disney released his Alice. It’s the most uneven of
the classic Disney features, juxtaposing brilliant and dull sequences. The Mad
Tea Party, the Queen of Hearts’ Croquet Game, and Alice’s encounters with the
Caterpillar and Cheshire Cat fuse the spirit of Carroll’s words, the vitality
of the polished animation, and the stylized look and brilliant palette of
designer Mary Blair. But the song “I Give Myself Very Good Advice” and the
unsatisfying adaptation of “The Walrus and Carpenter” bring the story to a
halt. Disney’s Alice in Wonderland remains a beloved film, and its better
moments are truly magical. (Rated G: cartoon violence, some scary moments,
tobacco use) –Charles Solomon
