    Well, at least now the “Red Queen”‘s finally IN Through the Looking Glass! 😉
    So are the Tweedles, but we have the original Disney animated for starting that bit of confusion.

    (Having just sat through Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, however, I think I’ll pass on this latest made-up-crap “Fan-fiction blockbuster”.)
