For all the eye-goggling special effects and “3D everything” in kids’ movies nowadays, the 60-year-old Alice in Wonderland will still leave your kids’ mouths agape as it still does mine, no funny glasses needed.
Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland’s 60th Anniversary Edition may be a familiar story to most, but I was blown away with how gorgeous this remastered version looks, from the opening where Alice dances among daisies, to her trippy interactions with the Cheshire Cat.
As for the extras we expect on discs these days, older kids and grown ups will love the “Through the Keyhole: A Companion’s Guide to Wonderland” addition to the Blu-ray disc which runs as an optional picture-in-picture feature to offer insight and extra details about scenes. This feature definitely makes the Blu-ray worth owning, even if you already have an older DVD release of the movie; it’s like having a bunch of Alice experts next to you to explain that “wha??” parts. And boy did I need that. –Christina
