Ralph Breaks The Internet Trailer: A Showcase of Disney Properties

The Mouse House takes on the full potential of owning various popular franchises.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 trailer introduces Ralph and Vanellope's adventure into the realm of websites and social media apps. The duo leaves behind Litwak's Family Fun Center and Arcade, after the criticial and financial triump of the original Wreck-It-Ralph in 2012, and enters the World Wide Web. The new trailer whooses into the marvel of the Internet with colorful tubes (in a Wi-Fi router), brand-modified high-rises, and Daft Punk's "Harder Better Faster Stronger!"

This time, Ralph (John C. Reilly) has the idea to travel into the interwebs so that he and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) can fix her Sugar Rush game. The trailer also teases their first encounters with new supporting characters like Yesss (Taraji P. Henson), the main algorithm for popular site BuzzTube, and KnowsMore (Alan Tudyk), a goofy-looking search engine with ridiculous, but not unrealistic, auto-guess function.


The sequel will establish a metropolis of Internet giants like Google, Twitter, and Snapchat. If Wreck-It-Ralph is chockfull of references to classic video games, the sequel seems like a self-indulgent display of the modern Internet and Disney's own website Oh My Disney. That is until Vanellope runs into by new Disney properties like Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Her playful nature certainly doesn't sit well with the sight of Disney Princesses, but a key scene later packs many jabs at a history of the writing formula that their princesses must endure.


The story direction taken by Ralph Breaks The Internet is still a secret, but it's certain that co-directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston prepare for Ralph and Vanellope individual character arcs and an endearing relationship that meets rough challenges in this new setting.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is due in theaters on November 21, 2018
