Meet CJ Uy - The Voice of Hattie On 'Alice's Wonderland Bakery' (Exclusive)

CJ Uy is making his television debut with Disney Junior’s new series Alice’s Wonderland Bakery!

The young actor lends his voice to the role of Hattie, who is a “mad-hatter” boy and Alice’s silliest friend.

He co-stars alongside Libby Rue as Alice, Abigail Estrella as Princess Rosa and Jack Stanton as Fergie the White Rabbit.

In the new series, which premiered TODAY (February 9) on Disney Junior, we meet Alice, the great-granddaughter of the original heroine and a budding young baker at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery. Each episode features two 11-minute stories about Alice’s recipe adventures with her best pals—Fergie, a white rabbit; Hattie, her madcap friend; and Rosa, the Princess of Hearts.

The series celebrates the culture and creativity of food, highlights self-expression and imparts age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about friendship, collaboration, and community.

In celebration of the brand new animated series, we spoke to CJ and got to know more about him with 10 Fun Facts.
