Ever wondered what Shrek used to look like? Han Solo and Chewbacca of Star Wars fame? The beasts of How To Train Your Dragon? From Sonic to Back to the Future, from the Boss Baby to The Feature Length Emoji Thing, from Buzz Lightyear to Bee Movie, all of your favorite – and hated – films have had a long and involved development process, from concept to the final product you enjoy in the theatre. Whether it’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the DCEU, Disney+, Twentieth Century Fox, Dreamworks or Pixar, every iconic character that you totally forgot about has early sketches and initial plans that might be completely different from those you know and love.
In this video, we’ll be taking a rapid fire journey through some of the wackiest, surprising and out there development stages of your most treasured cinematic faves. Who used to have a moustache? Who might have inexplicably had hair? Who was once a strange green frog alien? Hollywood blockbusters and box office smashes are as much about narrowly swerving away from terrible ideas as they are about recognizing and celebrating great ones. Nobody knows what they’re doing and even the greatest movie characters of all time, even the top memorable cartoon heroes from childhood through to adulthood, were only one bad drawing away from being a total disaster. So forget plot holes and things you missed. These are the primitive sketch versions of badass silver screen fictional heroes, villains and everyone in between.
