Emoji’s have become an integral part of how we communicate with each other in the virtual world. There are times when plain text just isn’t enough to accurately convey a meaning or emotion, which is why smiling, sad, sarcastic, and winking faces have taken over online and phone languages across the world. Emoji’s are a great new way of being able to express yourself, so it’s no big surprise that they’re currently taking the digital world by storm.
As with all popular things, it was only a matter of time before emoji’s would start getting used creatively. They’re no longer used to merely convey emotions; people use them to make fun quizzes and puzzles. Emoji’s were first introduced in Japan in 1999 and back then there were around 180 characters were in circulation. Today their number has increased vastly. In fact, nowadays there are so many different types of emoji’s available that author Joe Hale was able to complete the herculean task of entirely “translating” Lewis Carroll’s 19th century classic Alice in Wonderland from English into emoji’s.
Not only works of literature have been adapted into emoji language, though. Films are also a popular source of inspiration for those getting creative with emoji’s. There are thousands of emoji puzzles and quizzes related to films, actors, and famous movie quotes out there. We’re showing you six of the best.
