Lucasfilm blocked a Kylo Ren joke in Ralph Breaks the Internet

During an interview with IGN, Ralph Breaks the Internet director Rich Moore has revealed that while Lucasfilm had no issue with the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel “honouring” Star Wars characters with “playful jabs”, cameos and Easter eggs, there was one particular Kylo Ren gag that they put the block on.

“At one point we had a joke about Kylo Ren being kind of a spoiled child,” said 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.”

The news is perhaps not too surprising, given that it was reported last year that Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy had ruled that “Star Wars and comedy do not co-exist”. Kennedy had reportedly

Ralph Breaks The Internet Removed A Star Wars Joke At Lucasfilm’s Request

The upcoming Ralph Breaks the Internet will see the titular hero journeying online, so perhaps it only figures that the film almost made like a disgruntled social media user and took a shot at the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy.

In an interview with IGN, co-director Rich Moore mentioned that the Wreck-It Ralph follow-up was originally going to mock the villainous Kylo Ren from the ongoing space saga, but their friends at Lucasfilm weren’t too keen on the idea.

“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.”

Honestly, this exclusion seems pretty unnecessary,

Lucasfilm Said No Way to Wreck-It Ralph 2 Having Bratty Kylo Ren Jokes

Lucasfilm made the Wreck-It Ralph 2 team cut a Kylo Ren joke showing him as a spoiled child. When Disney put out the first Wreck-It Ralph in 2012, the studio had just acquired Lucasfilm, which means that there wasn't the Star Wars franchise to play with. However, a lot has changed in the six years since the first installment. In the promotional material for the sequel, we've seen C-3Po, Tie Fighters, X-Wings, and Stormtroopers, but we're not going to be seeing the villainous Kylo Ren.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, along with head of story Josie Trinidad, talked about their idea for a Kylo Ren joke. In the end, the idea of poking fun at the current main villain in the Star Wars franchise didn't sit well with Lucasfilm. Moore had this to say about cutting the Kylo joke from the sequel.

Ralph Breaks the Internet Creators on Princesses and Breaking Down the Web

Matthew Schuchman Oct 18, 2018

We chat with the filmmakers behind Ralph Breaks the Internet about how to best break online culture into a focused animated story.

Movies based on video games, or steeped in the world of video games, have always faced an uphill battle on the big screen. It’s pretty sad that the first live action Mortal Kombat film is still considered by many to be the best direct video game film in existence. Then came Wreck- It Ralph and things changed. An ode to older arcade games, Wreck-It Ralph ended up bringing in a cavalcade of characters from all over the video game map, and it worked!

Of course, the most important aspect of making any film work is for it to have a solid story with a clear viewpoint. The gaming aspect is just the icing on the cake. Hence why the creative team behind the Disney sequel,

Why Princess Leia Is Missing from Wreck-It Ralph 2 Disney Princesses Scene

  • MovieWeb
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 was first teased at the D23 Expo in the summer of 2017 where a bunch of Disney voice actresses came out on the stage to preview a scene which includes Vanellope hanging out with classic Disney Princesses. Since then, we've seen a lot more from the scene, which has been hyped since last summer. However, a lot of fans were left wondering why Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise was left out of the scene.

In a recent interview, Wreck-It Ralph 2 co-director Rich Moore discussed the somewhat confusing process of choosing the Disney Princesses that made the cut for the sequel. Along with Princess Leia, there are a few others that have been left out as well. But in the end, it seems that the crew of Wreck-It Ralph 2 went with the more traditional Disney princesses. Moore explains.

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Preview: From Online Trolling to Disney Princesses

  • Indiewire
Turns out that Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (November 21) has as much in common with “Zootopia” as its predecessor, “Wreck-It Ralph,” in addressing inclusion, diversity, and change.

After Ralph (John C. Reilly) bonds with fellow misfit Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) at the end of “Wreck-It Ralph,” their friendship nearly breaks when plugging into the internet in the first Disney Animation sequel since the studio regained its prowess more than a decade ago.

“It’s friendship affected by change,” said director Rich Moore. “Change is constant, which you can count on. Nothing stays the same forever. But doesn’t mean that a friendship can’t resolve because of different points of view or different dreams. In fact, good friendships can become better because of change.”

Six years after altering his role from villain to hero, Ralph and Vanellope must save her arcade game, “Sugar Rush,” from being shut down when its obsolete steering wheel breaks.
