It wasn’t hard to tell that Deadpool 2 would become a beast in the box office. The movie earned $734 worldwide, which places it as the third highest grossing R-rated film ever. This Christmas, the younger folks that couldn’t watch the film will get their shot.

Fox announced plans to re-release the film in a PG-13 format on December 21. This means most of the cruel humor and violent scenes will be removed. To celebrate the announcement, Ryan Reynolds posted a photo of Deadpool reading a story to Fred Savage.

This photo is a reference to The Princess Bride, which also stars Savage. In the film, Savage is told a bedtime story by his grandfather (Peter Falk). The grandfather skips moments in the story that are considered too menacing for the boy. From the looks of this photo, Savage will reprise his role in an unusual way.

The fourth coming?

This isn’t the first time Deadpool 2 had some work done. Over the summer, an extended version of the film was released to the public. The Super Duper $@%!#& Cut version features several extra scenes, including some more crude humor that didn’t make the final cut.

Many people assume this PG-13 take on Deadpool 2 is a joke towards Disney buying Marvel. The deal between the two forces will be finalized next summer.

More pool in the future

Because of the Fox/Disney merger, they’re slowing things down with Deadpool 3. Deadpool 2 did, however, pave the way for an X-Force film. While both films will be rated R, Disney has no problem with pushing boundaries in the cinema.

“It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool. As long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a press conference.
