  • Representation of the male character (PEEL para on his construction. What does he look like? What sort of things does he like to do? Bring in stereotypes. How does this appeal to the audience?)

  • Representation of the female character (PEEL para on her construction. What does she look like? What sort of things does she like to do? Bring in changing ideologies and reasons for this, including institutional. How does this appeal to the audience?)

  • How is their relationship represented?

  • The trailer shows the two characters growing up from small children to young adults – what does this say about the franchise and the legacy of the brand?
