As those of you who are coming to our upcoming Spring meeting are aware, our fellow Carrollian’s exhibition of Disney Alice memorabilia is now on exhibit at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum in Baltimore. Animation Scoop magazine just posted an online interview on their blog, check it out!
Attention Shoppers! TeeFury is offering two new Alice-themed designs:
One is a T-shirt that the site declares will only be available today, Black Friday, and never again after that. So if you like the design of Alice and the Cheshire Cat, you’ll need to buy it today.
They have also added a Disney-esque design to their “ugly sweaters” sweatshirt gallery. These are designs made to look as if they have been knitted, while in fact they are printed on the sweatshirts. So if you’re looking for an Alice-themed sweatshirt (or gift) with a homespun look, check out this item. This design will be available beyond today, unlike the T-shirt above. Both items offer a selection of sizes and colors, so choose carefully.
The site is also offering a 20% off Black Friday sale code, effective only through 11/29, and NOT applicable to the daily T-shirt design (like the one today for Alice). But it should apply to the sweatshirt and anything else on their site. The code is TFBF20.
Happy Shopping, Carrollians! And if you come across any other neat items, please let us know in the comments below.
The juggernaut that was Disney’s recent 2010 Tim Burton Alice has a sequel, and will be coming to theaters on Memorial Day – May 27th, 2016. Today Disney released the first trailer after having dropped several tiny snippets over the past few days and weeks following the big D23 event this past summer. And here it is.
For those of you, like me, who grew up in Southern California, Vans sneakers were the epitome of surfer/skateboard culture. Not so anymore, they are now a global brand with a wide variety of products, but still their slip-on sneakers rule the roost. And now, Alice! How cool are these? Get yours now while you can.
Walt Disney’s animated Alice is going to be showing at the El Capitan theater on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles for one night only February 12, 2015, as part of their Throwback Thursday series. Don’t be late if you want to see it!
Just in time for you to spend some of that gift money you received in your stocking, Teefury has release a very cool Alice/Who mashup tee today featuring my personal favorite character – the Caterpillar! You’ve got 1 day to get this shirt, don’t delay!
OMG. The Japanese have done it again. They’ve created not only an addictive mobile game, but unbelievably cute toys to go with it. It’s called Tsum Tsum and it is sweeping the globe. And of course, there are Alice toys. In the Japan Disney Store there is a set of nine minis available – originally designed as screen cleaners for your phone. They also have larger sizes for the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, and the Baby Oyster. At the US Disney Store, there is only a set of eight (no Baby Oyster).
This is something pretty neat. A dedicated Disneyland visitor filmed the entire Alice attraction, both before and after the recent rehab and produced this neat side-by-side comparison video. Having seen the new ride firsthand this past July, they did a very nice job capturing all the new projections and figures. Enjoy!
After years of being draped in hideously ugly tarps to cover the makeshift scaffolding erected to correct a supposed OSHA violation, the Imagineers at Disney finally unveiled their new enhanced Alice dark ride at Disneyland on Alice Day, July 4th. Hooray! Check out this POV video for the new experience. I must say the new effects look great, and the changes to the downramp vine could have been much worse, but I will always miss the old vine. For additional commentary go here and here. We’ll be riding it ourselves shortly, and will comment here with our take.
