Alice in Wonderland cel along with the cards cel are all in the maze – a 19″ panoramic production watercolor background. This all production animation art set-up is perfect for anyone who ever gets that I’m trapped in the maze of life feeling.
After Alice gets lost in the Tulgey Wood, the Cheshire cat appears and leads Alice into a giant maze of hedges. The maze is part of a kingdom ruled by the tyrannical Queen of Hearts and her smaller husband, the King of Hearts. The Queen beheads anyone who enrages her. The Queen’s men who of course are all playing cards, chase Alice all through the maze.
This Alice in Wonderland cel depicts this famous scene perfectly and impressively. The maze was recreated in Disney parks including Disneyland Paris.
The hedge maze is themed around scenes and characters from the Disney 1951 feature Alice in Wonderland. It comprises two sections: the first one with some of Alice’s adventures prior to meeting the Queen of Hearts, and the second based on Alice’s encounter with the Queen, who had a similar labyrinth in the film.
The goal of the maze is to reach the Queen of Hearts’ Castle, where one can obtain an aerial view of the Fantasyland section of the park. One can exit the maze prior to entering the second area, and the maze’s route is similar in shape to the body of the Cheshire Cat, with a semi-floral recreation of the character’s face adjacent to the attraction.
