The holiday season has arrived and among all the jolly reasons to take a trip to the movies this month is Once Upon a Deadpool. That's right, Wade Wilson is trying to make Santa's nice list, because the upcoming PG-13 Deadpool 2 (which includes a yet-to-be-seen nod toThe Princess Bride) is targeted for the whole family. Deadpool creator, Rob Liefeld has just seen the film and has a rave review to share. Here's what he said:

I can now confirm, the most formidable opponent that Deadpool has ever faced is none other than FRED SAVAGE!! Trust me when I tell you that Once Upon a Deadpool contains some of the very best, most vicious humor and unforgettable sequences of any Deadpool film to date. Sure, they could have just assembled a PG-13 airplane cut of the film but, no, Ryan cooked up one of the most daring and insane outings this series has seen. I had no idea what I would experience but when it was over I walked out with some of the very best, funniest and most outrageous moments. Hysterical! DON'T LET ANYONE SPOIL THIS MOVIE FOR YOU as they will not come close to nailing the exchanges. I won't even imitate it for my family as it will fall short! This is a huge swing over the fences! Inspiring! Fred Savage vs. Deadpool is a treat for the whole family. I'm taking the entire family back for multiple helpings. Every time I think that this entire live action Deadpool experience couldn't get any better, it somehow improves upon the last one. Can't wait to talk about this one more!! Two swords, way up!!

Per Rob Liefeld's review of Once Upon a Deadpool on Instagram, the unique PG-13 cut of has put in the maximum effort and shows it. Much of Liefeld's high praise goes to Fred Savage's addition to the film, and it looks like he will somehow play an antagonist to Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool in the limited engagement.

In the film, the Merc with a Mouth will kidnap the actor and place him in the clothes and setting he was in as a kid in The Princess Bride 31 years ago, in order to read him a family-friendly iteration of Deadpool 2. In the trailer for Once Upon a Deadpool, Fred Savage isn't particularly happy to be there with him and fires insults fourth-wall-breaking at him, such as how Deadpool isn't part of the MCU because of his ties with Fox.

Looks like there's much more to the pair's unlikely pairing that left quite the positive impression on the Deadpool creator. Considering how well Rob Liefeld knows the title character, his opinions has extra importance to the fandom.

Another key element to Once Upon a Deadpool will be its more wholesome approach to the summer blockbuster. Rob Liefeld also particularly loved how the filmmakers tackled this and it looks like he can't wait to share the film with the whole family. The writers of Deadpool 2 previously told CinemaBlend that parents and kids have been at odds with the film due to its R-rating and this release aims to share the film with a wider audience.

What makes me especially excited for Once Upon a Deadpool after Rob Liefeld's comments on it, is how he say it "somehow improves upon the last one." The franchise has been incredible and deeply entertaining so far and it's nice to hear that this re-release of sorts not only is catering to more people but also adding to the sequel in a way that makes it even more entertaining than the first cut.

Moviegoers will have the chance to see for themselves when Once Upon a Deadpool comes to theaters on December 12.
