6 Characters Who Have Undergone Huge Changes Between Movie Franchises

When it comes to the characters and their adventures through the plot of the film, movies take some liberties. During the two hours of the film, these characters frequently transform into completely different people as a result of their experience. Making this argument convincing is a major accomplishment for the film.
