Lucasfilm Didn’t Want ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ Making Fun of Kylo Ren, So the Directors Had to Cut the Joke

“Ralph Breaks the Internet,” the sequel to Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” has made headlines already for a scene featuring dozens of Disney princesses, (Princess Tiana’s skin tone was altered after people objected and said it was too lightened) but it turns out that was hardly going to be the only scene involving some of Disney’s most iconic characters.

“Wreck-It Ralph 2” directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston recently revealed to IGN they planned to include a Kylo Ren joke in the sequel, but it was Lucasfilm that stepped in and overruled it.

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

Lucasfilm has been seen in a negative light by some fans after the ‘Last Jedi’ film. It looks like they do not want their characters poked fun of even if its Disney itself doing it.

While the directors were more than willing to listen to Lucasfilm, they did express some disappointment in not being able to include the Kylo Ren joke in the finished movie. The whole point of including real characters from pervious Disney films in “Wreck-It Ralph 2” is to “honor who these character are” by taking “playful jabs” at them. It’s all in good fun, as Moore and Johnston explained.

“It’s really loving satire that we’re doing,” the filmmakers said. “Mostly at our own expense, with our jobs!”

“Wreck-It Ralph 2” arrives in theaters next month, a full six years after the original opened in theaters.
