As announced earlier, Sesame Workshop is planing to release an all-new direct-to-DVD movie entitled "Abby in Wonderland" in September 2008. This original film will star the Muppets of Sesame Street in a magical retelling of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland". The feature-length musical adventure stars Sesame Street's fairy-in-training Abby Cadabby in the titular role of Alice, while the rest of the Sesame gang joining in too (with Elmo as the Red Rabbit, Grover as the Mad Hatter, Cookie Monster as the Cheshire Cat, Oscar the Grouch as the Grouch of Hearts, the Count as the "Counter"-pillar, and Bert and Ernie in the roles of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum).
However, aside from the formal DVD release, this all-new film will also be treated to a limited theatrical run through the Kidtoons family matinee series. "Abby in Wonderland" will be featured in special screenings throughout the month of September at participating movie theatres - check the Kidtoons theater listings to find a theater near you. The film will be shown on more than 120 screens throughout the United States; and will give fans an opportunity to experience this brand-new feature-length film in a fun and unique way!
I will be sure to keep you updated as soon as more information on the DVD and theatrical release of this exciting new Sesame Street film becomes available.
