* CaptainErsatz: The film's version of the Dormouse comes across as a thinly disguised [[{{Narnia}} Reepicheep]].

* AdaptationInducedPlothole: In the original book it makes perfect sense for the Queen of Hearts to have an army of lower cards serving her. But there's no real reason why the Red Queen, who's not a playing card, would have one. It is perhaps slightly explained by the fact that they serve out of fear of the Jaberwocky, not actual loyalty.

It could also be a result of her being a CompositeCharacter of the Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen, who were originally from different books.

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Alice would ''not'' go on a journey to China after telling off all those people and talking nonsense, she would be sent to a ''sanatorium''. She's nothing but a young woman in Victorian England, after all. But a fabulously wealthy young woman in Victorian England, so she can do more than most. Just go with it! ** Alice's personality in general, actually. As is evidenced above, she is rebellious in ways which girls of her day would have had trouble even conceptualizing, and holds attitudes which, while perfectly fitting in the 21st century, would have shocked and offended proto-feminists of the era. This results in an Alice who reads as a progressively feminist girl born in the 1980s or 1990s who has been inexplicably transported to Victorian England with no explanation.

* TheSevenBasicPlots: Voyage and Return. Yep, painfully as obvious as [[TheHerosJourney Alice's adventure]], but inverted at the end when [[spoiler:Alice leaves Wonderland but vows to return, and once in her own world sails off to China, implying she has one more voyage before coming home]].

The Red Queen is an inversion.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the books, the White Queen did not change much in appearance when she turned into a sheep. Here, she's played by Creator/AnneHathaway. HelenaBonhamCarter's Red Queen, like other adaptations, is a CompositeCharacter of the Red Queen and Queen of Hearts, who is a {{Gonk}}, so she probably counts as well.

** Lady Ascot (Hamish's mother) griping about how the gardeners planted white roses when she specifically requested red, and Alice's response that she could paint the roses red, is a shout out to the Queen of Hearts in the Disney adaptation, as well as to other adaptations. *** The ''actual book''.
