Disney has added lots of pop culture references in its upcoming movie called 'Ralph Breaks the Internet'. However, one joke had to be cut out mainly because Lucasfilm didn't like the way Kylo Ren was being portrayed.

As reported by IGN, Ralph Breaks the Internet director Rich Moore talked more about the reason why the Kylo Ren joke had to be cut out from the movie. You can read what he had say down below.

"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."

It's a little surprising Lucasfilm denied the Kylo Ren joke because the character has been featured humorously before in other media.

Adam Driver did a comedy skit on SNL not too long ago while the Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game made fun of the Kylo Ren character from time-to-time.

It's probably possible Lucasfilm is being very cautious with the Star Wars brand after many fans did not like how Star Wars: The Last Jedi turned out.

Kylo Ren will return next year in Star Wars: Episode IX as the main villain.

Nevertheless, Ralph Breaks the Internet will make fun of other pop culture icons and websites. The movie is different from the first film which concentrated mainly on arcade video games.

Ralph Breaks the Internet will be released in North America on November 21st, 2018.
