On July 13, 1999, Alice in Wonderland's 1999 re-issue on video was one of the last official releases within the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection, along with Robin Hood, although it was originally planned to be released on October 14, 1997, according to the 1997 VHS of Sleeping Beauty, but it was delayed to July 13, 1999. During that time, this film had a remaining copyright term of 47 years from publication, two years more than it had back when it was released on VHS in 1981.

The film got a VHS re-print and its first official DVD on July 4, 2000 as part of the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection.


In the hands of Disney’s extraordinary animation artists, Lewis Carroll's immortal literary classic comes to life as never before!

The surprises begin when a daydreaming Alice encounters a White Rabbit who is frantically running late. She chases him and falls into a magical, madcap world of Wonderland with its kaleidoscope of off-the-wall characters – including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, and the manic Mad Hatter and March Hare, who invite her to a memorable tea party! The crowning confrontation begins when Alice meets the notorious Queen of Hearts and her enchanted deck of playing cards. Tricked into a curious game of croquet, Alice, and her patience, end up on trial. Is there no escape from this whimsical escapade? Filled with fantasy and topsy-turvy fun, "Alice in Wonderland" is teeming with spectacular songs and astounding animation in the highest Disney tradition!
