Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet Trailer
“Wreck-It Ralph” stands as a classic with all of its 80s and 90s video game references and insight into gaming culture. With “Ralph Breaks The Internet,” Disney has set themselves up, once again, to prove they’re an animation powerhouse. Even without the help of Pixar.
This year seems like it might have a few higher quality animated features in it than last year. Despite the standouts, “Captain Underpants,” “Cars 3,” and “Despicable Me 3,” 2017 didn’t yield many hits. Upcoming flicks like “Ralph Breaks The Internet,” “Lego Movie 2,” “Incredibles 2,” “Hotel Transylvania 3,” and “Teen Titans GO! To The Movies” are sure to all be great.
“Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet” follows up where “Wreck-it Ralph” left off and finds Vanellope and Ralph attempting to find a part to repair an arcade machine. The problem is that it’s only online. So, they take a trip to the Internet.
Whereas the first movie was an homage to games, this one seems like it will be an homage to everything Disney. In the trailer, we get glimpses of Storm Troopers, Iron Man, and even the Disney Princesses make an appearance. When asked if she is a princess, Venelope isn’t sure how to respond. In what I hope is an example of the humor we expect to find in this movie, all of the princesses pull out their troped reasons to consider oneself a princess. It results in a hilarious sequence, and I always love it when a company can poke fun at itself through its media.
From The Official Movie Synopsis:
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”
We’ll see if Ralph really does break the internet on November 21, 2018.
