10 Movie Characters we can all relate to in 2020

I’m probably the 9th one on the list!Just when we think the worst of 2020 is over with each passing month, the next month surprises us with a new suffering that is worse than the previous one. Coronavirus is forcing us all into isolation (James Bond included), grocery stores are running out of toilet papers and sanitizers, and there have been consecutive storms thrashing the entire country. Frankly, it looks like we are living a typical horror movie, scripted by Hollywood.Source: 9GagAll the superheroes went on leave, while the monstrous Coronavirus is still preying on the weakest out there… It is a battle of the fittest, after all.But what about the characters?If 2020 is really a movie, which character would you most likely relate to?Well, to answer that question, Hayvine has rounded up a list of characters that we can all relate to in the current 2020-situation: Rapunzel From TangledSource: CNN Rapunzel was quarantined throughout her life. Coincidently, the most poignant fact is that Rapunzel was locked away in a village called Corona.Rapunzel spent 18 years of her life quarantined in a tower. And since we all have been doing the same, we realize how difficult it must have been for her. While we spent most of our quarantine time Netflix and ‘chilling,’ Rapunzel teaches us that there are several things one can do while restricted within the boundaries of their homes, such as doing house chores, singing, knitting, cooking and many more.I guess we wouldn't mind being in quarantine, unless a prince accidentally climbed to our house, right? Baby from Baby DriverSource: Everett Herald Okay, so this character is for all those who think that their lives are following a particular beat. They don't care about whatever the situation is, they just put on their headphones, and follow wherever the music takes them.Exactly how most of us are spending our quarantine time, aren’t we? Students particularly relate to this character, especially during their zoom classes. Their teachers think they’re actually listening to the lecture, but in fact, they’re listening to something else or probably watching something on Netflix – something Baby Driver has been doing all along in the movie. Nemo from Finding NemoSource: Pop SugarI think we all have a little Nemo inside us. Nemo is spunky and curious like any other kid.Kids are excited to try out new things, they want to go out, hang out with friends, live their life like they used to. But parents (more like Marlin) wouldn’t let them because they are scared of the outside world, particularly Coronavirus. They have forced us to remain quarantined, which is justified, considering how our reckless behavior could risk everyone’s life around us. And those who disobeyed their parents and still chose to go out (just like Nemo did), suffered big time.And at the end, they realized that their parents were right— exactly how Nemo realized that his father was right all along. Po from Kung Fu PandaSource: Pinterest Po is probably everyone’s 2020 mood! All we care about is food, the rest is just secondary. As long as our tummy is filled with delicious food, we are happy to do whatever the changing situation demands from us.Just like Po, we usually depend on food to dull the pain whenever we get upset. I’m pretty sure many have gained some extra pounds during this quarantine, right? Bruce Banner from the AvengersSource: QuirkyImageThere’s no exaggeration in saying that 2020 brings us all over the edge. It feels like our emotions and anger are at the edge until someone triggers it and we will turn into a completely different person! Exactly like Bruce Banner in the Avengers movie…Honestly, this whole quarantine thing is really getting on our nerves. And as Bruce Banner said, maybe we are always angry…Katniss Everdeen from Hunger GamesSource: Inc.comOf course, Katniss Everdeen makes it to this list! Throughout the series, we have seen Katniss stepping up to help those in need.This character relates best to those unsung heroes who stepped up to help people in need during these critical days. These people chose to remain quiet, stay far away from the spotlight, and let their actions speak for them. Nurses, paramedics, doctors, law enforcement officers all fall into this category. Elsa from FrozenSource: DisneyElsa spent most of her life locked up in one room. She distanced herself from her sister in fear that she could harm her—exactly what the current situation is demanding from us! We need to isolate ourselves and maintain social distancing in order to keep our loved ones safe from Coronavirus. We need to be like Elsa for the sake of our safety and the safety of our loved ones, right? Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max Fury RoadSource: PinterestFuriosa is a strong-willed leader. She decides to save the Five Wives from Immortan Joe without being concerned for her own well-being and without any desire for reward, exactly like those people serving on the front line during this pandemic to save humanity.This character is perfectly fitting for all the nurses, paramedics, and doctors out there. Anna from FrozenSource: FrozenWhen life gives you snow, make a snowman!There’s always an Anna in the group who tends to be optimistic and full of life. She motivates us and gives us all the happy vibes we need. She‘s lovable and always chooses to see the bright side, no matter what life throws at her. So, if you’re stuck in quarantine with a person like Anna, you’re one lucky lad! So, which character from the list do you relate most to? Let’s know in the comment section below!
