Is that Mickey Mouse, or Alice? And who's that playing croquet: the Queen of Hearts or Clarabelle Cow? No, you're not crazy, Mickey Mouse has entered Wonderland in his latest DVD! We were given a sneak peek at the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse movie, Mickey's Adventures in Wonderland, available on DVD starting September 8.
Mickey's Adventures in Wonderland is a full-length movie (runtime=50 minutes) starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and all the friends from the popular tv series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Children can watch the movie in regular mode, or in one of two special interactive modes, where they use the remote control to answer fun, age-appropriate questions about colors, shapes and sizes. The DVD also has a bonus episode of "Goofy Goes Goofy".
Here's a description from Disney DVD: Get ready to join Mickey and friends on their most amazing adventure ever -- a new movie classic inspired by Disney's ALICE IN WONDERLAND! Don't be late for a very important date: Daisy's surprise birthday party! Her present is a magical cuckoo clock, and when the cuckoo bird flies away, Mickey and Donald set off through a fairy tale wonderland to find him. Will they choose the right mouseketools to locate Cuckoo and get home in time? Find out as you set off on a remarkable journey. Meet Tweedle Chip, Tweedle Dale and Goofy Hatter, play croquet with Queen Clarabelle and more! Packed with friendship, laughter and surprises, MICKEY'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is topsy-turvy fun for everyone.
And here's a trailer:
Young fans of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse will be happy to see all the familiar faces (Mickey, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pegleg Pete, Toodles, etc..) and scenery (the clubhouse) from the tv series. The plot, while based on Alice in Wonderland, also follows the familiar format of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, i.e. the characters interact with the viewer and ask for their help to solve various problems that crop up in the story. Even my kids, who fall just above the target preschool demographic, had lots of fun watching this movie! They loved seeing how the different Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters showed up as Alice in Wonderland characters (Chip and Dale as TweedleDee and TweedleDum, Goofy as the Mad Hatter, etc..). On a more practical level, I loved the Fast Play option, which gets the DVD playing automatically so I can just pop the DVD in and not worry about fiddling with the controls.
Unfortunately, that same Fast Play option also forces kids to watch all the previews and trailers -- I wish it just went straight to the movie!
The Bottom Line
If your child likes Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, he'll like this DVD!
