'Wreck-It Ralph 2' Trailer Lampoons the Internet; Here's Everything We Know

'Wreck-It Ralph 2' Trailer Lampoons the Internet; Here's Everything We Know

Feb 28, 2018

With the Oscar-nominated Wreck-It Ralph, Disney tapped into nostalgia for all kinds of video games, from 1980s classics to modern-day standards for various age groups. This fall, the animated feature's sequel will enter the much larger arena of the internet. Titled Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, this movie has a new teaser trailer showcasing the array of jokes for all ages involving Wi-Fi, ebay, traffic-baiting listicles, pop-up ads, and simple app games for toddlers.

The last of those things receives the most focus, as returning characters Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz enter the wide world of the net and end up inside a game that starts off very adorable and zen but then takes a very dark turn for the worse. As Vanellope says of another encounter, "Yeah, that one's really gonna haunt me for awhile." Fans of Disney movie Easter eggs will also be wondering: is that Baby Moana in that car seat who is traumatized by Ralph and Vanellope's interference in her pancake/milkshake game? 

Watch the trailer and then find out more about the movie below:


Who is back for the sequel?

As we see in the trailer, Ralph and Vanellope are once again the main characters in the Wreck-It Ralph sequel, with John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman reprising their respective voice roles. Reportedly we'll also see Fix-It Felix, Jr. (Jack McBrayer) and Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch), while Alan Tudyk apparently has a part but maybe it'll be a new character rather than King Candy. Off-screen, director Rich Moore, who also worked on Zootopia, is back at the helm, now with help from promoted returning screenwriter Phil Johnston (also of Zootopia).

What new characters will be introduced? 

Taraji P. Henson is one of the newcomers to the sequel, as an algorithm named Yesss. And while these aren't necessarily brand new characters, all the major Disney Princesses are expected to show up, with all those original voice actresses who are living (including Jodi Benson, Ming-na Wen and Idina Menzel as Ariel, Mulan and Frozen's Elsa, respectively) reprising their roles. The acual Moana (Auli'i Cravalho), will appear as well, plus characters from the Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe franchises.

What is the plot this time?

The teaser makes it out rather simpy: the owner of the arcade plugs the games into the Wi-FI, and Ralph and Vanellope curiously enter the internet. Why they go there is also in the search for some sort of replacement part needed for Vanellope's game, Sugar Rush. Here's Disney's official 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 webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

When does it come out?

November 21.
