As a delightful unbirthday present, Disney Legend Kathryn Beaumont is set to guest star in Season 2 of Alice’s Wonderland Bakery this fall! Beaumont voiced Alice in the classic 1951 film Alice in Wonderland from Walt Disney Animation Studios and will return to Wonderland in a 22-minute special titled “Alice’s First Day in Wonderland.”
Season 2 of Disney Branded Television’s Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, the fantastical animated series for preschoolers and their families, will debut Wednesday, June 28, at 7:15 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Junior. An initial batch of 7 episodes will premiere the same day on Disney+ and other on-demand platforms.
Season 2 will see Alice, the great-granddaughter of the original heroine and a budding young baker at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery, journey through the Looking Glass after finding a magical mirror in the pantry that transports her to a whimsical chessboard world. On this side of the Looking Glass, anything Alice imagines is possible. With the Silver Queen as their guide, Alice and her friends—Rosa, Hattie, Fergie, and others—meet all sorts of curious characters this season, including Kyra the Knight, Jacques the Mock Turtle, and Mopsy the mop dog.
In addition to Beaumont, Season 2 guest stars include Broadway and television star Merle Dandridge as the Silver Queen; Swayam Bhatia as Kyra the Knight; Mark Williams as Ribbitton, a frog footman; and Karen Fukuhara as Sakura, a singing and dancing cherry blossom. All of the original cast are returning for the new season, including Libby Rue as Alice, Abigail Estrella as Princess Rosa, CJ Uy as Hattie, Jack Stanton as Fergie; Secunda Wood as Cookie, and Max Mittelman as Cheshire Cat.
Recurring cast members returning include Craig Ferguson as Doorknob; Emmy® Award-nominated Eden Espinosa as Rosa’s mother, The Queen of Hearts; Grammy Award® winner Jon Secada as Rosa’s grandfather, The King of Hearts; Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan as twins Tweedle Do and Tweedle Don’t; Donald Faison as Harry the March Hare; Rich Sommer as Captain Dodo; Yvette Nicole Brown as Mama Rabbit; and George Salazar as Dad Hatter.
Alice’s Wonderland Bakery is produced by Disney Television Animation. Emmy Award-nominated Chelsea Beyl is executive producer, Frank Montagna is co-executive producer and art director, and Ciara Anderson is producer.
