Everybody knows that Kylo Ren is no fun, but who knew that Disney also had no sense of humor when it comes to Adam Driver’s dark son of Han Solo and General Leia? The makers of ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ found out when they attempted to poke fun at the… Sith Lord (?– do we know what he is technically, yet?) in their upcoming pop culture spoof.
Co-director Rich Moore revealed:
“At one point we had a joke about Kylo Ren being kind of a spoiled child. 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.”
Ultimately, Moore and his co-director Phil Johnston felt that the joke was too mean-spirited for their film anyway. They stated that ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ was aiming more for “loving satire” and that any spoofing needed to “honor who these characters are.”
There will be a ‘Star Wars’ presence in the film, however, as Anthony Daniels is confirmed to provide the voice for C-3PO, who will be depicted as a “butler” of sorts and is rumored to appear in the scene with the various Disney Princesses, which has been hotly debated.
Unfortunately, one Princess, Leia is not included in that scene either, to which Thompson said”
“I mean there are a lot of princesses that are from Disney movies that are not part of the canonized Disney princesses, you know, and I don’t know how they’re chosen. I don’t know how it goes on. I think it’s kinda like the Vatican where smoke comes out of a chimney. ‘And Moana is now a Disney princess.’ So we decided we’re going to use the canonized group of princesses, known as the Disney Princesses.”
Keep in mind, a lot of the so-called “Disney Princesses” aren’t princesses at all, like Mulan and Merida. Elsa is a QUEEN.
At any rate, ‘Star Wars’ has a presence in ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’. We’ll see just how large of one when the movie opens on November 31.
