From the beginning, Walt Disney's studio has produced animated films based off fairy tales like Snow White, Pinocchio and Cinderella. Each one has heartwarming characters that make the audience fall in love with them. One film however was a living hell for Walt to make.
Alice in Wonderland. Walt considered the idea of using Alice during the making of Snow White, but didn't have the time. The real struggle with this project was that Walt had to make sure it followed Lewis Carol's story which meant he had no freedom like he had had in making the others.
Cinderella. The problem with the film was that the characters seemed to be too robotic. The movie is a series of events where Alice meets nothing but madness and strife. This gave Walt no creative freedom which he really wanted to have.
Alice in Wonderland there may not have been a movie for Peter Pan.
Peter Pan. Amazingly, Alice and Wendy have a lot in common in that they have some of the same facial features and have the same personalities of being dreamers.
In my Own World" was originally going to be "The Second Star to the Right" that is now heard in the beginning of Peter Pan.
Alice in Wonderland lacks the heart which can be seen in the previous Disney films. But today, it is still considered to be an animated masterpiece cherished by Disney fans young and old.
