A new series inspired by Disney’s Alice in Wonderland is coming to Disney Junior in February. You’ll also be able to see it on Disney Channel and on the Disney+ streaming platform.
The series, called Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, will be another component of the original programming on the Disney Junior Channel and will feature the talents of 13-year-old Libby Rue as the voice of Alice, as well as Craig Ferguson, Eden Espinosa, Jon Secada, Saturday Night Live‘s Bobby Moynihan, Vanessa Bayer, and Ana Gasteyer, Donald Faison (Dr. Turk in NBC’s Scrubs), Yvette Nicole Brown (NBC’s Community, Disney+’s Lady and the Tramp and Big Shots.
The original new series follows the adventures of Alice, but she’s not Disney’s Alice from the 1950s. She’s that Alice’s great-granddaughter, and the series definitely has nods to the original 1951 Disney animated feature, Alice in Wonderland.
Other stars lending their voices to the new Disney Junior series include Abigail Estrella as the Princess of Hearts, C.J. Uy as Hattie, Jack Stanton as Fergie the White Rabbit, Secunda Wood as Cookie the Cookbook, and Audrey Wasilewski as Dinah the cat. Musician and singer Jon Secada plays the King of Hearts, and Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan play as Tweedle Do and Tweedle Don’t. Captian Dodo is voiced by Rich Sommer, and Yvette Nicole Brown voices Mama Rabbit. Ana Gasteyer voices Kiki, Lesley Nicol plays Iris, Lamorne Morris plays Dandy, and Matthew Moy plays a character cleverly named David of Spades (not that any preschooler will pick up on the name).
No word yet on whether the March Hare will make an appearance in the new series.
The series was created with preschool-aged children in mind and will include musical numbers as well. Alice’s Wonderland Bakery will debut on Disney Junior on February 9 at 10:30 a.m. and will also air at the same time on Disney Channel. The first few episodes of the Alice-themed series will also be streamable on Disney+.
