once upon a deadpool trailer

That scamp Deadpool is back with Once Upon a Deadpool, a PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2 that removes most of the naughty stuff, and throws in Fred Savage for good measure. The re-edited sequel will find its way into theaters just in time for the holiday season, netting even more money for Fox and hopefully satiating greedy, gluttonous Deadpool fans who can’t get their fill of Ryan Reynold‘s smart-ass superhero. Watch the Once Upon a Deadpool trailer below.

Once Upon a Deadpool Trailer 

In Once Upon a Deadpool, Deadpool has kidnapped Fred Savage – but it’s all in good fun. I think. Savage is here to recreate his famous role from The Princess Bride, as Deadpool recounts a cleaned-up, PG-13 version of Deadpool 2. While you can expect this version of Deadpool 2 to be altered, don’t expect too much new footage. The majority of new material involves Reynolds as Deadpool chatting with Savage – and by all accounts, this new footage was shot in one day. There’s a quick bit of “new” footage where Deadpool chats with an elderly couple on a bench – but this is actually a deleted scene from Deadpool 2 that can be viewed on the Blu-ray release already. In other words, if you’re hoping for a brand new movie, you should check your expectations at the door. But if you’re curious to see how a PG-13 Deadpool 2 might play out, Once Upon a Deadpool might be for you.

I’m not so sure the world needs a PG-13 Deadpool 2, but I will admit the joke about how Fred Savage prefers “real” Marvel movies, as opposed to ones released by Fox, was fairly amusing. As an added bonus, $1 of every ticket sold is going to be donated to the charity Fuck Cancer (renamed Fudge Cancer here, to keep things PG-13). Once Upon a Deadpool will play in theaters from December 12 till Christmas Eve.

To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told 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…” Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab” For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.
