I don't think I know one single person who dislikes this movie. The movie marked the first of many collaborations between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. A story of innocence, loneliness, a longing to fit in and love. This modern fairytale that parallels Beauty & The Beast has won over the heart of millions and became an instant classic, thanks to Depp's immaculate portrayal of the title character as well as Burton's vision. As Johnny Depp once described "Edward represents, amongst other things: the unconditional love of an animal; a childlike sense of wonder; an adolescent's clumsiness and someone who longs to touch others with hurting them."

Trivia: Did you know that to prepare for the role, Johnny Depp watched many Charlie Chaplin movies to study the idea of creating sympathy without dialogue since his script only consisted of a mere 167 words for the entire movie?     

For more Edward Scissorhands art, here's a blog that debuted for the 20th anniversary of the movie. It ultimately turned into a fan-made illustration collection for the beloved puppyface character
