Ralph Breaks The Internet Had An Amazing Cut Cameo Planned Featuring The Golden Girls

 

Everybody needs a friend. In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, the co-directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston revealed what might be the best, and most tragically lost, in the history of -heavy-but-still-delightful films.

So (very mild spoilers), one of the websites Ralph and Vanellope visit during their exploration of the world wide web is the real-life sit OhMy.Disney.com, a Disney online destination with content based on the company’s entire catalogue. According to the directors, this was fertile ground for a joke that was maybe a little too obscure to make the final cut.

“As we were studying the OhMy.Disney website … The were weirdly prominent throughout,” Johnston said. “They really lean in on that website to The Golden Girls. A lot of quizzes, a lot of lists…” So in an early animatic of the film, the Golden Girls themselves — Blance, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia — appeared in the scene.

“It was a little confusing,” added Moore. “If you were not familiar with the website, it was a bit confusing.”

“You’re asking my regrets when I’m on my deathbed?” Johnston is quoted as saying, with a smile “It’s that — that the Golden Girls are not in this movie.”

That’s an incredibly reasonable regret, honestly. If anyone deserves to be immortalised in the annals of postmodern CGI romps, it’s the Golden Girls. But, yeah, chances are no one would have gotten the joke.
