Video of the Day: Disney’s Real-Life ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Tea Party


Here’s the coolest thing we’ve seen all day: You know the Mad Tea Party from Disney’s version of Alice in Wonderland? Well, fans, although that movie was animated, the tea party itself really happened. Walt Disney was known for staging scenes with his voice actors to give animators an idea of what a sequence should look like, and it just so happens that he did so for this famous moment. And there’s more — he liked the results so much that he used the audio from the take in the final film. Watch the test footage and the finished animation, placed side by side, in a video by YouTube’s lostvocals4 after the jump.
