One of Johnny Depp’s most memorable and beloved characters is Edward Scissorhands in the movie of the same name, but how old is this iconic character and is he destined to live forever? Tim Burton has achieved widespread success and popularity for his unique style that blends gothic elements, bright colors and family-friendly horror, earning him the nickname “The Burton Style”. Burton’s film career began in 1985 Pee Wee’s Big Adventurebut it works with beetle waterIn 1988, he finally showed off his filmmaking style.
After sharing my thoughts on Gotham City BatmanIn 1989, Burton returned to the original story Edward Scissors A 1990 story that he and Caroline Thompson wrote. Edward Scissors The film tells the story of the main character (played by Depp), who was created by a lone inventor (Vincent Price), but unfinished when his creator suddenly passed away, leaving behind his hand. not scissors but a man living alone in an old gothic mansion. on the hill. Years later, Edward is discovered by Peg Boggs (Diane Wiest), who accepts him and tries his best to help him reintegrate into society. When Edward develops feelings for Peg’s daughter Kim (Winona Ryder), the townspeople begin to see him as a threat, as there are many rumors about him.
Edward Scissors It was a critical and commercial success and is considered one of Burton’s finest works. Burton is also known as Edward Scissors His most personal work, it remains a fan favorite, and although many years have passed since its release, audiences still have some questions about the story and characters. the two biggest problems Edward Scissors About his age and longevity, because he looks the same at different years throughout the series.
Edward Scissorhands looks exactly the same at three different times throughout the film: before he ends, when Peggy finds him, and when Kim tells his story to her niece, years after the events in the movie. Edward Scissorhands is an eternal being who has been cast as one during his lifetime, and while Johnny Depp was 26 at the time of filming, it’s fair to say Edward looks like a 20-year-old. age during his lifetime. Now, another question about Edward Scissorhands is whether he is immortal, as it is assumed that he is an artificial human, but it is unclear what he is made of. If he is injured, Edward can feel it, but he is not bleeding, and it seems that he can survive without food (it is unlikely that he will have enough to eat in the mansion after his creator died, but Boggs ate as usual). human when he lived with him), so Edward has the ability to be immortal.
The answer to the second question may vary depending on what Edward Scissorhands is made of, because if he is a robot as many viewers have suggested, then if he is a gear or some other part of the his internal system is broken, he could die. Edward Scissorhands is an ageless, immortal cyborg, which adds tragedy to his story, as the townspeople turn against him and King must fake his own death.
