WHY IS CHARACTERIZATION IMPORTANT?
Characterization brings a character to life.

It makes us fall in love with characters, relate to characters, and loathe characters passionately.
Characterization is what makes us cry when Mufasa dies, cheer for Anna when she saves Elsa, hate and fear Snape for years and then honor him in the end.
Characterization helps the audience connect.
