Alice is the titular protagonist of Disney's 1951 animated feature film, Alice in Wonderland. She is a young girl who uses her bizarre and unusual imagination to escape her dull life which her own curiosity leads her to another world called Wonderland after following the White Rabbit. When exploring and roaming Wonderland, Alice finds herself appreciating the normality that she once rejected upon encountering the bizarre inhabitants who live in the world. She was voiced by Kathryn Beaumont who reprised her role in later media until she retired in 2005 where Hynden Walch took over the role.
Why She Rocks
- She's not only the cutest and likeable character, but she is independent without the need of a love interest or any male character and having the ability to stand up for herself alongside her intense curiosity and not overplayed. Though she's quite intelligent, innocent, courteous, imaginative and very adventurous.
- Her character design is very cute and adorable, especially her signature and iconic outfit compared to John Tenniel's illustrations from the original books.
- Her adorable and heartwarming relationship with her cat, Dinah.
- Despite being a bit of a oddball, she brings herself to be sensible and more rational than the crazy inhabitants of Wonderland.
- Her English voice actress, Kathryn Beaumont did an amazing job of both voicing the character and performing for live-action reference scenes that would be used for rotoscoping. Also, she has a beautiful singing voice, particularly when she sings "In a world of my own.", Kathryn Beaumont also voiced Wendy Darling from Peter Pan.
- Regardless of being frustrated and annoyed with the Wonderland inhabitants' rude behaviour and nonsense, she is generally kind and caring to those who need help. At one point, when meeting the three playing cards who are painting the white roses red to avoid facing the wrath of the Queen of Hearts, Alice volunteers to help them in a way to keep them from being executed.
- Sometimes, she can be quite helpless, even though this isn't overplayed.
- Her obsession of trying to follow the White Rabbit throughout the film just to find out what he is late for, due to her overtly curiosity. Though, she does have a reality check later after finally getting fed up with all the nonsense due to the Mad Hatter and March Hare's rudeness towards her at their Tea Party, and decides to make her way home.
