Alice in Wonderland

Special thanks to my friend Hiro for sharing with us!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s post for our #DisneyTrivia segment!  Special thanks to my friend Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and Heidi from Heidi’s Head for letting me join in!  Today we’ve got a bit of Disney History for you!

Did you know, that on this day in 1951:
Walt Disney’s 13th animated film Alice in Wonderland is released in U.S. theaters by RKO Radio Pictures, two days after its London premiere. Kathryn Beaumont, the voice of Alice, will later narrate the Alice attraction at Disneyland. Alice features the animation of all of Walt’s “Nine Old Men.” Alice’s musical score, written by Oliver Wallace, will be nominated for an Academy Award.

I’ve always thought that the movie version of Alice in Wonderland didn’t compare to Alice as a character at Walt Disney World.  I really enjoy seeing her in the parks, and hope you do too!  However, this movie was certainly a big one, and the fact that it had all of the Nine Old Men featured in the animation certainly does reflect the importance of the movie!

What do you think of Alice in Wonderland?  Like it, don’t like it, or have never seen it?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!  Don’t forget to check out the rest of the entries by clicking on the links below, and thanks!
