The intricate chapters and adventures that the main character experienced in the book of Forrest Gump and that you can’t find anywhere in the hit movie.

One of Tom Hanks’ most memorable films is, without a doubt, Forrest Gump, a dramatic comedy released in 1994.

The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis and is based on the novel of the same name by writer Winston Groom, but curiously they have little to do with each other.

Although you will perfectly remember the movie Forrest Gump, it’s likely that you haven’t read the novel. And we already told you that the novel is radically different from the movie.

You could say that with the movie Forrest Gump An attempt was made to offer the most human and sympathetic side of the character with happy stories, compared to the darker narrative of the book.

The Forrest Gump movie dispensed with many of the book’s disturbing aspects, including some dark stories involving the character.

And specifically, the Forrest Gump movie eliminated a story which involved the main character going into space with an ape.

When the main character in the book attracts the ire of local law enforcement officers, they take him to a mental institution, where they observe his great ability to do mathematics in his head.

This attracts NASA engineers, who recommend him to participate in one of the country’s most ambitious space programs.

The fact that the character can do complex calculations helps him carry out an experimental mission in which he is sent into space with astronaut Janet Fritch and an ape.

From there, a rather comical chapter develops, which we do not want to reveal to you, but also not very credible to see it introduced in the film you have seen.

And this scene did not fit with the tone that the director was looking for with the Forrest Gump movie, so in the end they decided to dispense with this chapter in space, but also others in which even The character has to survive a tribe of cannibals in New GuineaBut that’s another story.
