Disney is creating a new series for its Disney Junior programming based on the classic film Alice in Wonderland (1951). Alice’s Wonderland Bakery is currently in production and will make its Disney Junior premiere in 2022.
Disney’s newest children’s show will focus on the great-granddaughter of the original Alice, whose name is also Alice. Alice works at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery. The new show will also introduce its young viewers to all-new characters they can grow to love.
D23, The Official Disney Fan Club, released information on the show from Disney:
Each episode of Alice’s Wonderland Bakery will feature two 11-minute stories that detail Alice’s recipe adventures with her best pals—Fergie, a white rabbit; Hattie, her madcap friend; and Rosa, the Princess of Hearts. The series, which is geared to kids ages 2–7 and their families, will celebrate the culture and creativity of food, highlight self-expression and impart age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about friendship, collaboration and community.
A statement was also made from Joe D’Ambrosia, senior Vice President of Original Programming at Disney Junior:
Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming, and general manager, Disney Junior, announced that the deliciously fantastical animated series is slated to debut in 2022. “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,” he said. “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.”
Alice’s Wonderland Bakery will be targeted at children ages 2 to 7, as it most Disney Junior original programming. Disney Junior is currently home to many popular Disney shows including Doc McStuffins, Elena of Avalor, Puppy Dog Pals, and Muppet Babies.
