Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston revealed Stan Lee never got to see his cameo in the upcoming animated feature before his passing.
Lee’s Ralph Breaks The Internet cameo will be one of his last, a tradition that has expanded beyond the Marvel films. Lee has been confirmed to also appear in the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Captain Marvel, and Avengers 4. In Ralph Breaks The Internet, Lee’s cameo occurs when Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope bumps into an animated Lee will while running away from Stormtroopers with Ralph in a Disney website. In a recent interview with The Wrap, Moore revealed that Lee didn’t have a chance to see his animated cameo before he died:
“He did not see it. That scene seems very poignant now on his passing, and it’s very special that we were able to have him as part of our film.”
Johnson also revealed that Lee’s cameo was originally going to be bigger:
“For a moment, we had this thing called ‘Marvelize Yourself,’ where the human avatar is able to go through what looks like a metal detector and turn into a Marvel character. And as part of that scene, we had Stan Lee go through the Marvelizer. But when we decided to lose that joke and not use the scene, we still wanted to have Stan Lee in the movie, because we love Stan Lee.”
Moore chimed in saying:
“And we thought it would be appropriate that he does a Stan Lee-type cameo”
The film stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Ed O’Neill, Timothy Simons, Ali Wong, Hamish Blake, Glozell Green and Taraji P. Henson.
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 hits theaters November 21, 2018.
