The characters in the movie are also much more developed, in contrast to the book where most characters are used just to point the story in certain direction. Despite the changes that were made for the movie adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, the characters and parts of the story that are commonly associated with it, such as the rabbit hole and the Cheshire Cat have been kept. An example of this is the white rabbit. The rabbit is the first glimpse that Alice gets of the fantasy world, so it is a very important character. Alice’s reaction to seeing a rabbit in a waistcoat in the book is described as this “Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it” (Carroll, FIND THE PAGE NUMBER).

You would think that as fast as you were running you were up against Usain Bolt in the 100 meter dash.

Rocks stacked on top of one another like piles of copulating potato bugs.”(47)
3. Dorothy and her friends point at Flying Monkeys coming to capture them, The Wizard of Oz According to Figure 3, It is clear that as Dorothy and the gang approach the castle, the vivid colors of Oz start to fade and everything darkens. It is here that the Wicked Witch’s green skin becomes very important. Despite the dark castle and minions, she still appears vivid, demanding attention and remaining interesting.
