2D Project 2- Forrest Gump Movie Quotes and Synopsis (UPDATES!!)

I have decided to change two of my movies including ” Adventure is out there!” , Up and ” Go, live your dream. ” , Tangled because i feel that there would be some difficulty in finding symbols for the quote. I would also like to think that the quotes that I ahve chosen may be easier for me to understand and easier to find symbols to represent them. Furhtermore, I also thought one of these quotes that is ” Congratulations San Francisso, you’ve ruined pizza!” from Inside Out to be more comical and I can find interesting ways to portray the quote which is also something that I am trying to explore in the theme of comical and whimsical.
