Disney Legend Kathryn Beaumont had the honor of voicing not one, but TWO iconic characters in Walt Disney Animation classics: the title role in "Alice in Wonderland" and Wendy Darling in "Peter Pan." Jessica and Melanie explore Kathryn's legacy and her childhood experiences working with Walt Disney himself, as well as behind-the-scenes stories from her time playing the live action versions of Alice and Wendy on television and in the reference films made for the animators. Jessica also talks about the day she got to interview Kathryn Beaumont in person! Enhanced with audio clips of Kathryn's work, this episode will be a trip down memory lane for listeners who grew up loving these classic Disney animated films.
