ALICE’S WONDERLAND BAKERY is a brand-new series coming to Disney Junior and it promises to be a colorful whimsical take on a very familiar world! Aimed at preschoolers and their families and based off the classic world “Alice in Wonderland,” the series will make its debut on February 9, 2022.
Ready for a jump? This show takes place a good bit after the adventures of Alice in 1951’s animated feature and centers in on a new Alice — the great-granddaughter of our original heroine — who is a budding young baker at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery. Reimagined versions of familiar iconic characters will join memorable new ones.
Each episode of ALICE’S WONDERLAND BAKERY, comprised of two 11-minute stories, centers on Alice’s magical recipe adventures with enchanted kitchen tools and ingredients to help. The series celebrates the culture and creativity of food, highlights self-expression, and imparts age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about friendship, collaboration, and the importance of community.
Disney Consumer Products, Games and Publishing will obviously follow up with a robust product line by Just Play inspired by the series featuring dolls, role-play products, figures, and more in Fall 2022. A digital soundtrack featuring songs from the series will be released by Walt Disney Records in February.
