Fred presses on in the new clip from the movie, pointedly asking Deadpool: "Why do you think audiences will be stupid enough to swallow this?"

With Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox all but agreed upon, there have been a number of questions as to how the House of Mouse might go about incorporating all of Fox's old Marvel IP into the larger cinematic universe - especially properties like Deadpool, which has found box office success by going for hard R-rated films.

It's all in aid of a new cut of Deadpool 2, which carries a 15 rating in the United Kingdom - yes, still, which is something that the pair covers in the Q&A sessions for this special new cut of the teaser - and slices out some of the swearing and violence in aid of a family friendly experience. "It's a family movie", Deadpool shoots back.

Once Upon a Deadpool will contain footage from Deadpool 2, but edited down to a PG-13 format which means cutting some of the violence and language. All in all, there's only about 20 minutes of new material added to the film. 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".

To kick off the holiday season audiences of nearly 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.

Like many of you, when it was first announced that Fox would be making a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, my first response was, "Oh, God, why?" "I've said no since 2006".

Yes, in a massive nod to/wholesale rip-off from The Princess Bride, the adapted sequel will include several wrap-around scenes featuring Deadpool explaining the story to a grown, kidnapped Savage.
