as they are portrayed in the Disney
rendition of Lewis Carroll's
Alice in Wonderland
This book has been explored a great deal on film in a variety of countries. Visit the Alice in Wonderland - Archive to see just how much.
Reading the original is by far the most rewarding way to know Alice and her creator.
To compare the Disney version to the original is always interesting but there is also a great deal to be learned by expressing our gut reactions to the various characters as they appear in Disney.
Consider how you feel about each character and share any experiences you may have had with these types in your own life and fantasies:
Alice had the voice of Kathryn Beaumont . Look at the snapshots of Kathryn at this site, she looks a bit like the animated character because, in fact, she was the model, as she also was in her other famous voice role as Wendy in Peter Pan.
Discuss the Characters:
How do you feel about Alice and her imagination, did you have such dreams as a child?
What did you feel about the teacher? How lucky for Alice to have such a gentle and patient teacher, have you known one like her?
Is the "Late I'm Late. . ." rabbit like anyone you know?
