The Jabberwocky is the true main antagonist in the 2010 remake of Alice In Wonderland. He is the fearsome Red King of the Underland, and is the Red Queen's partner.
He was voiced by the late Christopher Lee, who has played Saruman.
He was similar to the Jabberwocky in the novel, but unlike it, since he was truly evil, mist of black smoke could emits out of his wings when they flap, so he is a source of darkness. He can also breathe purple lightning out of his mouth, another trait the Jabberwocky in the book doesn't have.
The Jabberwocky is extremely arrogant, as he cares about nothing but himself. He is evil, vicious, and manipulative, and his desire to take complete control of Underland is what caused him to be killed by Alice, and his minions to turn on him. If he had been a hero (or at least a better character), none of this would have happened at all.
The Jabberwocky is a huge, black dragon. He has red eyes and enormous wings. He has a T. rex-like head with a frill similar to a Triceratop's frill, but with fewer and longer spikes. Whenever he flies, black mist emits from him, which symbolizes true evil and hatred.

Alice in Wonderland (2010) Edit
At first, he is mentioned by the Red Queen to be her Red King, as his main goal was to keep her in control of Wonderland. Later on, Alice had to fight him, and during the battle, he started talking about his ancient enemy, which defeated him once (one who used the Vorpal sword). Alice cut off his tongue with the same sword, so he tried to finish Alice off with everything he had. When Alice got to the top of the tower, the Jabberwocky stood up in front of her, and tried to killed her. However, she jumped and cut off his head.
- The poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll suggests that he should be simply called the Jabberwock instead.
- He is constantly thought to be the secondary or tertiary antagonist.
- His real name is currently unknown, though it is possible that "Jabberwocky" is the name of his species.
- The Jabberwocky is the only villainous creature in the 2010 remake that does not serve the Queen, unlike the Jub-Jub Bird or the Bandersnatch.
