Alice in Wonderland: 60th Anniversary on BLU-RAY & DVD 2/1 – CLOSED

I love that all these classic Disney movies are now coming out on Blu-ray, the newest one to hit the shelf on February 1st is Alice in Wonderland.  This is a classic movie that I remember enjoying as a young girl (despite it being first released before my parents were born).

Here’s a Synopsis:

ALICE IN WONDERLAND is a story about a young girl who grows bored listening to her older sister read aloud from a history book about William I of England. While dozing off, she dreams about falling down a rabbit hole (“Wonderland”) that is populated by a peculiar series of misadventures. The always sensible Alice whirls through a world of contradictions, imagination and surprises where she encounters amazing creatures – including a pocket watch-toting White Rabbit, the imperious Queen of Hearts and her army of playing cards, a Cheshire Cat with a lingering smile in an unforgettable fantasy, and the off-kilter Madhatter – and tests her sensibility and courage. In the end it’s all a dream, she is awakened by her sister’s voice, and as the two of them return home for teatime where she realizes that perhaps logic and reason exist for purpose. And in return, her sister realizes affectionatelythat Alice is still young, but will grow-up in time.

I really love this movie!  It’s very funny and so odd that it keeps your guessing the whole time.  There are very few very scary parts in this movie, perhaps the Queen yelling “Off with their head” isn’t appropriate for a 2 year old.  But overall, it’s not a dark movie.  Perhaps it will give your kids a bit of anxiety as Alice makes her way through all the mazes, but there is plenty of fun and silliness along the journey.  I absolutely love the “do-do” flamingos, I could watch them over and over while Alice and the Queen play the ever important game of croquet and mess things up for Alice.

I recently watched the new Tim Burton version of Alice and Wonderland, and I found it to be way too odd, dark and strayed too far from the original for me. I like the classic Disney cartoon version.  It’s fun, silly and very creative!

  5. I am 34 years old and since I left for college, every time I came home I would sit and watch this movie, recorded off TV (i’m old) with my Dad. Still do to this day. I have a 10 month old daughter who has taken an uncanny liking to Alice too! Must be in the blood. Can’t wait to get this for her!

  6. The White Rabbit is my favorite character. When I am getting ready to go out I often repeat his best known line about being late.
