By all means, make your suggestions and revisions in the comments. We’d love to hear your take and hope you do get out to enjoy the movie. It’s a great adventure and maybe you can pick up a few other characters we can match up. If we do, we’ll be sure to put our a second version of this post pointing out the additions!
