Disney pulled out all of the stops to promote “Ralph Breaks the Internet” this week, all leading up to the big world premiere and the red carpet event that the studio hosted this week. Select members of the cast and crew came out to meet with fans and discuss the long awaited sequel, which is storming into theaters on November 21st. The dragons that came out were the band Imagine Dragons, the popular band are featured in the film with the song Search Results “Zero”.
As we saw in earlier trailers, Sarah Silverman’s character Vanellope runs into a few Disney Princesses during her internet voyage, and a few of them came out to help promote the film. Among the Royalty attending the event were Auli’i Cravalho (Moana); Jennifer Hale (Cinderella); Jodi Benson (Ariel); Kate Higgins (Aurora); Mandy Moore (Rapunzel); Ming-Na Wen (Mulan); Linda Larkin (Jasmine); Paige O’Hara (Belle); and Pamela Ribon (Snow White).
The first installment, “Wreck-It Ralph,” set a high bar when it released in theaters back in 2012. The film opened with a $49M debut and made over $189M domestically before grossing over $471M worldwide. If everything goes according to plan, there will probably be a “Wreck-It Ralph” trilogy installment but we will have to wait and see how the follow-up film preforms this fall.
In the film Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must travel into the unknown world of the internet in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. The duo are guided by the citizens of the internet, called the Netizens, to find the missing part. They meet Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race.
The new installment was directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”).
