Alice in Wonderland
A world of wonders in One Great Picture
On a golden afternoon, young Alice follows a White Rabbit, who disappears down a nearby rabbit hole. Quickly following him, she tumbles into the burrow - and enters the merry, topsy-turvy world of Wonderland! Memorable songs and whimsical escapades highlight Alice's journey, which culminates in a madcap encounter with the Queen of Hearts - and her army of playing cards!
Dear Disney People,
This one was really strange. I don't think I understood everything. I really, really liked the cat with the big grin.
My dad liked it a lot. Maybe more than I did. He kept laughing all the time. He's a bit strange.
Hugs and kisses,
(Dirk is my dad. He made me watch this)

Question of the Day: Can I like a film that has beautiful animation but has no plot, no character development, and not point to it?
The simple answer is no I cannot. This film will be easily forgettable once my journey with Disney is done. I always thought this film came out of after the death of Disney because it lacked that Disney magic, it lacks those fantastic songs and characters you just adore. The only part of this film that is great is the party with the Mad Hatter and March Hare. Disney must…
This is the definitive Alice in Wonderland for me and will never be topped.
Now I understand why people may not love this as much as I do as sure the plot is all over the place and yes it does kind of end abruptly but this is one my my favourite Disney films of all time. I remember as a kid there were a load of classic Disney films to choose from whenever I stayed at my Grandparents house and this, (as well as Fantasia strangely enough) above any other was by far my most watched Disney film for me growing up.
Watching it again I was really apprehensive as I really do love it that much. Fortunately then it DEFINITELY still resonates with me today as much as it did with me…
The Good: Incredible animation. Imagery is gorgeous, colorful, imaginative, surreal, and magical. Love the characters, the dialogue, and the story (even if it's mostly just nonsense).
The Bad: None.
The Bottom Line: A very underrated and underappreciated Disney classic. Highly recommended.
Think about watching the Pink Elephants scene from "Dumbo" for a full 90 minutes, and you will begin to imagine what this drug trip of a movie is all about. It's absolutely bizarre, and not all of it works -- Especially the songs. But it gets it right more often than not, capturing the zany spirit of the two Lewis Carroll novels and bringing them to vivid life. Plus, it's really quite funny.
I sure do miss Humpty Dumpty, though. He's one of my favorite characters in either of the novels.
They sure were high-as-fuck when they did this .
Not that it's a negative thing .
You HAVE TO be high when you're adapting a Louise Carol's novel .
I could watch this film every day for the rest of my life.
Not as good as I remembered it. Neat though.
This movie is like what I would imagine a bad acid trip would feel like.
A lot of old skool Disney was over stuffed with dull side characters that take away time from the much more interesting main plot. Alice has some nice moments, her tumble into Wonderland, the flower singing scene, the catipillar meeting, but a lot of it is very boring too and for a 75 min long film it drags terribly.
Sweet, imaginative and obviously a classic, but it lacks the fairytale magic of Sleeping Beauty and the musical scope of Bambi, two Disney classics i much prefer.
Walt Disney Animated Feature Series
This coming directly after Cinderella was a breath of fresh air. Watching this made me realize why I'm doing this series in the first place. You can literally see the phases begin and end, and this is definitely the beginning of a new phase.
Alice in Wonderland marks an important turning point in Disney animation. This no longer has that all-important reminder of fairy tale structure that plagued much of the earlier films. It finally understands that it can embrace the limitless creative potential of the medium and run wild, so to speak.
I'm not saying this film has more emotional or thematic depth than its predecessors - it doesn't - but there's this…
This movie is nothing more than a collection of weird scenes and images that do not really go anywhere or offer character development. My five-year-old even felt ripped off that it was "just a dream." I wouldn't consider this a classic but it is classic Disney animation.
The Mad Hatter scene is so fun and inspired in this that I'm convinced it's what's given this it's enduring classic status because the rest of it nonsensical gibberish (albeit fun in a few spots). And is this the worst Disney ending ever?
The bouncy animation of Disney and the ludicrous world of Wonderland turn out to be a fun combination.
