One character that appeared in the original Wreck it Ralph movie back in 2012 that didn't get a chance to shine in Ralph Breaks the Internet was iconic '80s videogame character Q*bert. However, when the Blu-ray comes out, fans will get the chance to see the little orange guy in a special deleted scene.
The deleted scene will feature Q*bert as he heads into the Internet before Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) set off on their mission to the World Wide Web. However, unlike the heroes of the movie, Q*bert's introduction to cyberspace was an accident.
The scene is displayed as storyboards with the voice cast performing the lines. Q*bert and Vanellope are almost both sucked into cyberspace when Ralph saves his little buddy, but not before Q*bert is whisked away. Everyone is shocked and horrified, with Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) firing her gun at the entrance to little effect. While Fix-It Felix Jr. (Jack McBrayer) wanted to rush in to save Q*bert, Ralph is not convinced. Ralph would he eventually save Vanellope, though he is not as enthusiastic about saving the little orange guy.
However, while they are arguing, Q*bert is tossed back into the station. As everyone gathers around him to ask what he saw, Q*bert starts talking in his normal gibberish language. Felix then translates and said that all he keeps repeating is the word "everything."
The scene went a long way to show the horrors that might exist if anyone tried to head into the World Wide Web. This would make the decision for Ralph and Vanellope to head in to find the part needed in order to save her Sugar Rush game even more daring and dangerous than it already was.
However, director/co-writer Phil Johnston said the scene needed to be condensed. He went on to say that he loved the idea of showing a shellshocked Q*bert "with the thousand-yard stare of a hardened combat veteran." Of course, as with almost all deleted scenes, this one was removed to get Ralph and Vanellope into the Internet and the main story more quickly.
Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnson, Ralph Breaks the Internet features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot, Jane Lynch and Ed O’Neill. The DVD and Blu-ray go on sale on Feb. 26
