Wayne's World has long been a favorite for 90s kids everywhere with its amazing hair, hilarious characters and quotable lines. However in a recent interview, Mike Myers (aka Wayne) revealed one of the movies most memorable moments, the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' singalong, almost didn't happen!

According to Myers the song was originally planned to be a Guns N' Roses number! Myers disagreed with the choice so much that he even threatened to quit if the song wasn't used:

During a recent interview with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, Myers admitted:

And at one point I said, “Well I’m out, I don’t want to make this movie if it’s not ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.

As we all know Myers got his way, Bohemian Rhapsody was used and the singalong scene in Wayne's World became the stuff of cult classics.

However, for all of you mulling over what a Wayne's World Guns N' Roses singalong may have looked like then wonder no more! Thanks to the amazing talents in the Moviepilot team we can now show you:

Amazing! I have to say, that the hair does lend itself to really rocking out to a bit of Guns N' Roses!

Wayne's World is not the only movie to undergo significant changes before it was released, so check out these famous films that could have ended up looking very different:

Elsa was meant to be a villain in Frozen?!

Director and screenwriter Jennifer Lee has divulged that Elsa was originally a villainous character! Early sketches and scripts of the movie had Elsa as an evil Snow Queen and Anna as a poor peasant who asks the queen to freeze her broken heart. Elsa was even supposed to have an army of snowmen! It wasn't until the song 'Let It Go' was written that Lee realized Elsa needed to be rewritten more as a misunderstood character than an evil one, and thank goodness they did!

Lex was suppose to ride a dino in Jurassic Park?

In the sick Triceratops scene in Jurassic Park there was also supposed to be an appearance by a baby Triceratops! As cute as that sounds the scene was supposed to include Lex riding on the Triceratops. Riding a DINOSAUR. Hmm, I don't know about you but that sounds a bit twee to me. Not to mention that it definitely would have diminished the impact of the savage Raptors and T-Rex if earlier a character had lessened the fear by parading around on one like a carnival ride.

Even though the scene was scrapped the baby Triceratops model was made and you can see it in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

----------------------------------------

Ellen Ripley was supposed to be a man in Alien!

Kick-ass feminist film icon Ellen Ripley totally owned the Alien movie series but in early drafts of the script Ripley was supposed to be a man! Director Ridley Scott soon realized that he could create a much more iconic character and flipped convention by casting Sigourney Weaver instead.

What do you think would have been most different if it wasn't changed?
