* Another from Tim Burton's film: At the end, Alice decides to continue her father's project in opening Asia to trade with England. Think about that from a historical perspective for a second. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice job laying the foundations for the Opium Wars, Alice]].

*** The sequel proves that it ''is'' The White Queen's fault. But it wasn't her potions that ruined her sister, rather it's the White Queen's fault that the Red Queen tripped and her head swelled, and it never went back to normal.

* In the new ''Film/AliceInWonderland'', the {{Darker and Edgier}} nature of Wonderland was just for the ever-present {{Rule of Cool}} as opposed to the original. Then you realize that ''Wonderland represents her mindset!'' Wonderland was whimsical in the first Alice because she was a little kid, and now she's an adult with darker thoughts!

* Tim Burton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. Tim Burton can cause Fridge Horror by simply '''adding a cameo'''. To be more specific, the Gryphon makes a cameo as a mural fighting the Jabberwock[[IAmNotShazam (y)]]. In the book, the Gryphon tells Alice that the [[CompositeCharacter (Red)]] Queen of Hearts '''never carries out executions'''. He isn't in the movie. So either A) the Jabberwock killed him, or B) the Queen had him executed. Either way, a FunnyAnimal who may be one the only characters in the novel nice to Alice DIES.

** The March Hare, Mad Hatter, and Dormouse are seemingly trapped in that tea party. ''Un''birthdays are simply an excuse to drink tea.

* In the new ''Film/AliceInWonderland'', I thought the {{Darker and Edgier}} nature of Wonderland was just for the ever-present {{Rule of Cool}} as opposed to the original. Then I had a thought: that ''Wonderland represents her mindset!'' Wonderland was whimsical in the first Alice because she was a little kid, and now she's an adult with darker thoughts!
** That doesn't explain [[LooksLikeCesare why everyone looks tired]], though. :) --{{Tropers.Jonn}}
*** A common symptom for depression IS fatigue, maybe Alice is still depressed from the loss of her [[spoiler: father]] and being pressured into marriage.
** If you'd spent years living under the tyranny of the Queen of Hearts, you'd probably look a little weary, too.

* Consider both Iracebeth and Mirana. Even though the movies and books and nonsensical and mind-warping, there might be some logical to the queens. Their names, appearances and personalities suggest that they may be representations of Main/MaryTudor and [[Main/TheVirginQueen Elizabeth Tudor]].

** Well, yes and no, possibly, seeing as the fictional Alice was based on the real Alice Pleasance Liddell, a friend of Carroll's.

** Actually, it makes perfect sense if you pay attention. The Queen says in the movie that she had her husband the King executed. If you remember from the book, ''he'' was the one who always quietly pardoned whoever she sentenced to death.
