2012’s Wreck-It Ralph was an unexpected success for the animation powerhouse that is Disney-a funny, well-made, surprisingly emotional film about a video game villain within a Donkey Kong-type arcade machine who embarks on a quest to prove his ability to be a good guy. In the process, he ventures into other games and teams up with another game character in an effort to hopefully complete his journey, as well as learn a little about himself in the grand tradition of roughly every Disney film to date.
In all seriousness, Wreck-It Ralph was loaded with cameos from characters spanning the history of gaming (the Tapper moment and end credits are personal favorites), a catchy Owl City-esque score by Henry Jackman and fine work overall by director Rich Moore-as the years passed since Ralph‘s release, would more adventures soon follow?
Six years later, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is here to bring us back into Ralph’s world, this time revolving around his trip into the World Wide Web where new characters voiced by Taraji P. Henson & the great Alan Tudyk will team up with returning cast members Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and John C. Reilly in the title role.
Tomorrow, the debut of the film’s first trailer will give us our initial look at the sequel. Can we expect more of the same mischief, complete with a character looking suspiciously like Twin Galaxies referee Walter Day? Here’s hoping that’s the case, along with a short film that’s better than Paperman. I really didn’t like Paperman.
Ralph and Vanellope embark on an adventure inside the internet to find a spare part to fix an arcade game.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 glitches its way into theaters on November 21st.
