Timothée Chalamet is perfect casting as the Tim Burton character Edward Scissorhands, though it’s happening not in a movie but rather Cadillac’s Super Bowl commercial.
Well, Chalamet is actually playing Edgar Scissorhands, the son of Winona Ryder‘s classic character Kim Boggs. And even Ryder is back for the commercial, which is probably as close to a sequel to Edward Scissorhands as we’re ever going to get. The Super Bowl spot is for the all-electric Cadillac LYRIQ, which you can drive even if you have massive scissors for hands.
Tim Burton himself commented on the ad, which does not feature Johnny Depp’s Edward Scissorhands, “It’s rare when a work you’re proud of continues to live on and evolve with the times, even after 30 years. I’m glad to see Edgar coping with the new world! I hope both fans and those being introduced to Edward Scissorhands for the first time enjoy it.”
