A to Z Challenge!

So the A to Z challenge has started up! This is my first time doing anything like this, so I'll admit I'm a little nervous! If any of you are interested, you can still sign up before Monday night HERE

So for the very first day, the letter A and I've decided to stick with A Disney theme for the month! Whether its movies, characters, quotes or fun fact that you didn't know, that's what I'll be sticking to this month! So here's the Disney salute to the letter A!

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland was made in 1951 based on the children's books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass, both by Lewis Carrol. As the title states, the movie is about a young girl Named Alice who was curious as to where a white rabbit in a red coat carrying a watch was headed. She followed him down the rabbit hole and entered the eccentric world of Wonderland. There, she meets the strange inhabitants of the land such as: The Mad Hatter, March Hare, Door Mouse, Tweetle Dee & Dumb, and The Queen of Hearts. 

Reasons Why I Like It:

Its got catchy songs, amazing animation, and an incredible cast! I mean, Kathryn Beaumont had the perfect innocent voice for the character! The comedy always brought a smile, if not a laugh, to everyone's faces. It was one of Disney's finer movies that not only taught good morals, but it kept kids entertained throughout the whole thing! 

Fun Fact: The Cheshire Cat was supposed to have a song called "I'm Odd" but it was eventually cut. Instead, it was replaced by the Cheshire Cat singing lines from the Lewis Carrol poem The Jabberwocky.

So with that, I leave you all with a quote by my favorite smiling cat: 

 'Twas brilig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: / All mimsy were the borogroves, / And the mome raths outgrabe'
