Coming in 2022, new animated preschool project follows Alice, the great-granddaughter of the original heroine, as she cooks up recipe adventures in the enchanted Wonderland Bakery.
Disney Junior has just announced that production has begun on a new CG animated series, Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, slated to debut in 2022. Geared to kids ages 2-7 and their families, each episode will feature two 11-minute stories about Alice's recipe adventures with her best pals - Fergie, a white rabbit; Hattie, her madcap friend; and Rosa, the Princess of Hearts.
The series centers on Alice, the great-granddaughter of the original heroine and a budding young baker at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery, where treats bring a new generation of characters together. It will celebrate the culture and creativity of food, highlight self-expression, and impart age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about friendship, collaboration, and community.
"The magic and mischief of Alice in Wonderland has been treasured by millions for over a century, and we are delighted to introduce this version of a young Alice and her charming friends to a whole new generation,” shared Disney Junior Senior VP, original programming and general manager, Joe D'Ambrosia. "Inspired by the sense of connection that food brings about—and recipes filled with enchantment and heart—the series will showcase whimsical stories with relatable themes for our Disney Junior audience."
