Edward Scissorhands Turns 25 This Month. How Did That Happen?
We take a look at just at 10 things you might not already know about Tim Burton's gothic 90s masterpiece...
‘You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren’t up there now… I don’t think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it.’
It seems only yesterday that Winona Ryder reduced us to a sobbing wreck as she uttered the closing lines above. We’ve got a newsflash for you: it was 25 years ago. 25 years since Tim Burton melted our hearts with his icy fairytale, exploring love and loneliness in Suburbia. That’s a quarter of a century! Crikey, we feel old.
To celebrate our old age alongside Edward, we thought we’d explore just a few things you might not know about the ultimate gothic romance. The heartbreaking story of a gentle man with scissors for hands…
1. It’s really all about Tim Burton’s awkward teens
Burton grew up in suburban Los Angeles and his fictional neighborhood is based on his own memories growing up there. The director later revealed that he had problems socialising with the people around him and was unable to nurture friendships as a child.
2. Tom Hanks turned down the role of Edward
No, seriously. Fox studio was even keen for Burton to consider Tom Cruise – imagine that! Burton wasn’t convinced. ‘He was interesting, but I think it worked out for the best,’Burton on Burtonquotes him saying in 2006. ‘A lot of questions came up.’ Even Michael Jackson expressed interest in playing the role.
