An insider's look at the vast and whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland! Nearly 60 years after Lewis Carroll's literally masterpiece Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was first published, a new filmmaker named Walt Disney created a silent film about a little girl named Alice and her adventures in Cartoonland. The pilot launched a 56-episode series and led Disney down a rabbit hole to form company that would go on to become synonymous with fairy tales-including making further versions of the Alice story with the beloved 1951 animated film, the more-recent live-action versions, and several iconic Disney Park experiences. Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland: An Illustrated History delves behind-the-scenes of those whimsical worlds.
