The White Queen theorizes that the movie's Red Queen has a tumor pressing against her brain, explaining both her large head and her deranged behaviour. First daughters Malia and Sasha, who were respectively 11 and 8 at the time, were able to invite their close friends to share in the activities, which also included a magic show in the East Room. Overview[ edit ] With a motif of Through the Looking-Glass being a representation of the game of chess , the Red Queen could be viewed as an antagonist in the story as she is the queen for the side opposing Alice. Most of her characteristics are taken from the Queen of Hearts, including: Both characters say this to suggest importance and possible arrogance, but in the Red Queen's case it has a double meaning since her status as a chess-queen means that she can move in any direction she desires. The White Queen banishes the Red Queen to Outland where nobody is to say a word to her or show her any kindness. After the Jabberwocky is slain by Alice, the Red Queen's army stops fighting and following her orders. The irritable, snobbish mother of Alice's potential husband, cast as a corresponding villain in the "real world" also resembles the Queen of Hearts when she fumes about her gardeners planting white instead of red roses. She is not seen in person until near the end of the game, first playing croquet and beheading the hedgehogs she uses as balls whenever they miss their target at her castle, and then again both before and after the battle with the Jabberwocky. Carter has said that she based her performance on her toddler-aged daughter. The Red Queen's true past is discovered when Alice travels in time: The Red Queen is the love interest of Time and the two ally: Also, Jefferson Airplane 's song " White Rabbit " contains the lyric "and the Red Queen's off with her head", another instance of the two characters combined or mistaken for one another. In doing this, Alice presents an end game, awakening from the dream world of the looking glass , by both realizing her hallucination and symbolically "taking" the Red Queen in order to checkmate the Red King.
