Alice in Wonderland 60th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review

For years I have been dying to figure out what the movie is that has Alice going through a mirror and there's a dragon with it.  It's got to be like at least 20 years old and for the life of me I can't figure it out!  Seriously, it drives me batty.  But, there I go starting with a tangent.  Back to the blu-ray at hand...

Walt Disney’s 1951 take on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland made its high def debut on Blu-ray Disc February 1st.  Alice in Wonderland is presented in 1080p high definition, with a  1:33:1 (4:3) aspect ratio.
The richness of the colors is crazy gorgeous!  Talk about a beautiful trip to be on!  Already a brilliantly animated film, the remasteredness of this edition is mind-blowing.  

Of course you know the story- a girl experiences a wild adventure full of crazy people, wild trips and experiences as she tries to figure out how to get back to the real world.  Will she lose her head?  I guess you will have to watch to find out!

Two English audio options are available on the BD: the original mono mix in Dolby Digital 2.0 and a new lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 Disney Enhanced Home Theater Mix. Both have been restored and sound excellent.

There are several brand-new features exclusive to the BD, like two expanded viewing modes, newly-discovered reference footage, and a short pencil test for the “Alice Shrinks” sequences. Classic extras from previous DVD releases can be found on the disc as well.

Family Time Factor:  Can be enjoyed by all ages!  Not my favorite Disney classic, but still worth the watch!

MOTR Grade: B+

Alice in Wonderland is currently available on DVD and Blu-Ray!!!
