The first teaser trailer has arrived for Once Upon a Deadpool, a recut and renamed PG-13 version of Deadpool 2.
The film will largely just be a child-friendly remixed version of the original, although some new scenes were filmed specifically for the release.
“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” said the film’s star Ryan Reynolds when speaking to Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining.”
Apparently Savage’s inclusion is “an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic The Princess Bride.”
Once Upon a Deadpool will hit cinemas on 12 December.
