Disney Junior has a new show based on the world of Alice in Wonderland and both Craig Ferguson and Donald Faison are a part of the cast. Alice’s Wonderland Bakery continues the story of Alice in Wonderland but with Alice’s great-granddaughter. In the show, Libby Rue portrays this new Alice, Craig Ferguson is the Doorknob, and Donald Faison is Harry the March Hare.
In this new take on Alice in Wonderland, Alice will be cooking up some “whimsical cakes and treats” at the Wonderland Bakery. Of course, she will be cooking for some of the local residents like Chesire Cat (Max Mittelman) or the Queen of Hearts (Eden Espinosa).
In a featurette for the series, Libby Rue explains that “Baking is something that Alice does to get close to her great grandmother.” She explains that “It’s basically her superpower.”
Other main members of the cast include Abigail Estrella as the Princess of Hearts; CJ Uy as Hattie; Jack Stanton as Fergie the White Rabbit; Secunda Wood as Cookie the cookbook; and Audrey Wasilewski as Dinah the cat. They are joined by Jon Secada as the King of Hearts; Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan as Tweedle Do and Tweedle Don’t; Rich Sommer as Captain Dodo; Yvette Nicole Brown as Mama Rabbit; Ana Gasteyer as Kiki; Lamorne Morris as Dandy; Matthew Moy as David of Spades; and Lesley Nicol as Iris.
The show is aimed at preschoolers and includes musical numbers. It will be arriving on Disney Junior and the Disney Channel on February 9 at 10:30 AM. Disney+ will also stream the first few episodes.
