The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
Alice Kingsley: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
In a close-up, just after the defeat of the Jabberwocky, the White Queen collects the Jabberwocky's blood dripping from its teeth into a vial. Cut to a wider shot with the vial just over half full, you can see that the drips are still being caught by the vial (ie, they don't drop past it onto the ground), but the level of blood in the vial doesn't rise, revealing that it is done in post-production.

When Alice walks through the little door and arrives in Underland, pay attention to the tree next to the stairs. It is the same tree as the tree of the dead in Sleepy Hollow, another Tim Burton movie. See more...

The entry you are marking as a duplicate is:
|Title||Alice in Wonderland|
|Original entry||The film is set in England in the latter years of the Victorian era, which ended with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. Alice and her father both use the word "bonkers." According to Webster's New World Dictionary, that word was not in use until 1945-50. [As an English BA I can say it is entirely possible that the word bonkers was in conversational use long before it was put down in writing (which would be a requisite for the dictionary citation), as many words take a long time to slip into literary conciousness/approval, especially with the expectation to follow Standard English back in that period. Given that Alice's father is shown as a maverick, it is likely that he would use such unusual words in conversation.]|
