Timothée Chalamet plays Edgar Scissorhands, Edward’s son, in the spot for Cadillac LYRIQ, which will air in the game’s fourth quarter.

Kim is Edgar’s mom, and Edgar inherited his father’s scissor hands. (Johnny Depp played Edward in the original.)

“This is the story of a boy with scissors for hands. No, not that one,” she says in the clip.

Winona said to Variety that she “loved the idea of working with Timothée, and the fact that it was an electric car was important too…it was pretty surreal to have Timothée play my son, Edgar. Timothée is an incredible guy — so talented and sweet. I felt a pretty instant bond with him.”

“It’s rare when a work you’re proud of continues to live on and evolve with the times, even after 30 years. 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,” Tim Burton said in a statement.
