RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET Joke About STAR WARS Villain Kylo Ren Was Unfortunately Cut

Ralph Breaks the Internet directors explain the reason a joke about Star Wars villain Kylo Ren was unfortunately cut from the upcoming animated film, which already features tons of Disney references.

From Disney's princesses to Lucasfilm's stormtroopers, Pixar's upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet pays all sorts of tributes to the House of Mouse. But there was one reference in particular - a joke about Star Wars villain Kylo Ren - that unfortunately didn't make the cut.

“At one point we had a joke about Kylo Ren being kind of a spoiled child,” said director Rich Moore. “We went to Lucasfilm and said, here’s what we’re doing. And they said, well, we’d prefer that you don’t show him as a spoiled child. You know, he is our villain, and we’d prefer you don’t do that. So we were respectful of that.”

Though Kylo Ren possesses great powers and can be an intimidating figure at times, he's also earned the reputation of a "spoiled brat" because of his childish temper tantrums. Though they are presumably shown to showcase his uncontrollable anger, he mostly just comes off as a bit of a baby who whines when he doesn't get his way.

In any case, it's probably for the best of the franchise that Pixar didn't neuter the character any further. On the bright side, Ralph Breaks the Internet does have a nice tribute to another Star Wars character - beloved droid C-3PO who will apparently be a butler to the Disney princesses.

The goal of these cameos, according to co-director Phil Johnston, isn't necessarily to make fun of the characters, but rather to "honor who these characters are" and respect their history while taking "playful jabs." For C-3PO, being a butler "felt like that's of his character," reasoned co-director Phil Johnston. “It’s really loving satire that we’re doing.”


 
“Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

Disney fans will see all sorts of tributes to their favorite films when Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters November 21, 2018.
