On 26 July 1951, exactly 70 years ago today, Disney’s cartoon movie “Alice in Wonderland” premiered in London. Two days later it was released in the US.
Although Disney’s cartoon does not follow the plot of the books very strictly, and combines elements of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass and what Alice found there”, and although it wasn’t an immediate success, it has had a great influence on how we see and remember Lewis Carroll’s story. Thanks to this movie, most people associate a blue dress with Alice, and pink stripes with the Cheshire Cat.
