The white queen and the red queen are included in the sequel to Alice, that is Through the Looking Glass
. Most of the characters in the movies are usually taken from Through the Looking Glass
: Tweedledum and Twedledee, the speaking flowers, Humpty Dumpty. The queen in Alice in Wonderland
is actually the Queen of Hearts who plays croquet with Alice, while the red and the white queen play chess.
The books are wonderful, I highly recommend them. If you don't want to read the books I suggest the BBC version of Alice: it shows only the events in the first book but it's a faithful representation of the actual Alice in Wonderland
Regarding Tim Burton, I must say I agree with all of you: he's a genius! I absolutely adore his movies, even the minor ones such as Ed Wood
. I cannot wait to see Coraline
