The movie’s director, Tim Burton, gave his blessing for the new ad. “It’s rare when a work you’re proud of continues to live on and evolve with the times, even after 30 years,” he said. “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.” Like his father, Edgar has shears for hands and is incapable of doing many basic things, such as tossing around a football.
Driving a conventional vehicle is also out of the question. Cue the Super Cruise-equipped Lyriq. The EV crossover, Cadillac’s first-ever all-electric vehicle, also has the hands-free driver assistance system that makes it possible for Edgar to “drive.”
