Stan Lee Didn't See His 'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Cameo Before His Death

Stan Lee has a brief cameo in Ralph Breaks the Internet, but did not get a chance to see the movie before his tragic death earlier this week.

The cameo comes when Sarah Silverman‘s character Vanellope and John C. Reilly‘s character Ralph are exploring the “Oh My Disney” section of the Internet. Vanellope bumps into a man, who turns around and reveals himself to be Stan.

“He did not see it,” co-director Rich Moore told The Wrap. “That scene seems very poignant now on his passing, and it’s very special that we were able to have him as part of our film.”

Co-director Phil Johnson added, “For a moment, we had this thing called ‘Marvelize Yourself,’ where the human avatar is able to go through what looks like a metal detector and turn into a Marvel character. And as part of that scene, we had Stan Lee go through the Marvelizer. But when we decided to lose that joke and not use the scene, we still wanted to have Stan Lee in the movie, because we love Stan Lee.”

“And we thought it would be appropriate that he does a Stan Lee-type cameo,” Rich added.
