Experience the magic, fun, and adventure of Alice in Wonderland like never before in this new Masterpiece Edition 2-Disc set. Join Alice as she falls into the madcap world of Wonderland and meets extraordinary characters such as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, and the frantically late White Rabbit. And the fun continues with new bonus features including the Virtual Wonderland Party, the newly discovered Cheshire Cat song "I'm Odd," Mickey's "Thru the Mirror" animated short, plus sing-along songs and all-new games. Your family will want to experience this timeless Disney masterpiece again and again!
The first title in Disney's "Masterpiece Series" delivers the 1951 tale in its best home video edition. The restored and remastered print looks better than the original DVD release, with slightly brighter colors and more detail in the dark backgrounds. A center speaker channel has also been added for 5.1 surround. The second disc brings on the bevy of extras, albeit with more historical context than most other Disney discs. Here's the precursor to The Wonderful World of Disney, the hour-long "One Hour in Wonderland," a 1950 special hosted by Walt and the live-action Alice (cartoon voice actress Kathryn Beaumont), the first such TV show from the empire. The Fred Waring Show excerpt has Beaumont showing up again as Waring's orchestra performs songs from the movie. Ms. Beaumont also talks about the many songs that were composed for the film but never made it in. One, the Cheshire's Cat's "I'm Odd," has been fully animated as an extra. For kids, the new Virtual Wonderland Party is a live-action activity, much more intriguing than the usual DVD set-top games with games, jokes, sing-along songs, a variation of "Simon Says," and more. Since the choices are random, kids 3 to 9 will want to play it several times. --Doug Thomas

The story is relatively true to Carroll's novel, but some things are left out and some things, for the sake of music, have been added. The film creates an entirely new aesthetic, in contrast to John Tenniell's original black and white, pen and ink drawings. Disney's Cheshire cat, White Rabbit, Mad Tea Party, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, caterpillar, and Alice herself have replaced Tenniell's images in the popular imagination.
This is done at the height of the Disney studio's conventional animation technique, released between Cinderella and Peter Pan. At the time, the technique was vastly superior to TV animation, except for the shorts which began as material for the big screen. I watched this film a few days ago, after buying the DVD, and my impression is that the animation is almost as good as Disney's best, but it seems to lack the subtitles I see in Bambi or Fantasia.
But, after 64 years, the film holds its own and charms me one more time. This may be the best Alice worth buying, even if you could find the older ones on DVD or even tape.
I'm so disappointed! What a rip off! I purchased the "2 Disc Special Edition", and there's only one DVD. And to top it off, it's the bonus material, not even the actual movie. Will be returning.
It keeps her busy since she loves to sing and dance, it is nice to have the extra's on there for her to explore further.
