The Academy Award-nominated Ralph Breaks the Internet is now available for you to own. Disney’s latest sequel brings back those lovable digital misfits for an all-new adventure that takes Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) on an all-new adventure across the digital space. Their search for a valuable replacement part to help fix Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush takes the two to the Internet, where they run to all sorts of new characters like the tough street racing queen Shank (Gal Gadot) and trend-setting algorithm Yesss (Taraji P. Henson).
This very fun sequel comes with a number of equally fun, but very standard, bonus features. However, they may be of interest to those who love a deep dive into the animation and story process. These features take a look at all of those layers and how each team must work in tandem to make sure everything fits together nicely. Check out a mini film review plus a review of all the bonus features below.

Wreck-It Ralph saw Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) as a pair of lovable arcade sprite misfits in an animated film about acceptance, identity, and self-worth. The film is that perfect blend of humor and heart supported by terrific animation and video game nostalgia. It’s been six years since we last saw the two in a film whose ending seemed perfect. Now we are getting a sequel. Don’t worry, it’s not about Ralph and Vanellope causing trouble in the arcade. No, this time the two go to the Internet in Ralph Breaks the Internet, a play on the very popular phrase when something goes viral. While not as strong as the first, the film goes far beyond humoring with all too easy Internet tropes and gags.
There’s plenty of emotional depth and some surprises that will have you wanting more. However, the pacing and editing are just some of the issues that slow things down. But it’s not enough to ruin what is a fun sequel. Check out my full review below.
There are only a few more weeks left until Disney releases Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph. The film will see the return of Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), two arcade sprites who venture to the Internet in search of a replacement part for Sugar Rush, Vanellope’s game.
Along the way they will run into technological advancements they’ve never seen before like social media, algorithms, and the dreaded auto fill search bar. Disney has released a brand new clip featuring the two running into KnowsMore, a bit of an outdated version of the auto fill. Think AskJeeves. Additionally, there is a Happy Birthday Internet video for this Internet Day. Check them both out below.
Last month, Disney invited a select group of journalists to Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA, where they previewed Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph. This is one of the first major theatrical animated sequels Disney will be releasing. Set in a new world outside of the Mr. Litwak’s arcade, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) embark on a quest to find a replacement part for Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush on the Internet. On their journey, they will see that the Internet is much larger than anything they’ve ever imagined.
We were able to share with you some of the things we learned about the upcoming sequel. Now I sit down for a one on three interview with Josie Trinidad (head of story), Jason Hand (story artist) and Natalie Nourigat (story artist) to talk about developing a story like Ralph Breaks the Internet, making sure their voices are heard during discussions, what stays on and what gets thrown out, saving the character Knowsmore, and more. Check out our interview with the story team below.
Zootopia marks the return of Disney using animals who can walk and talk. While this isn’t be the first time we have seen such a film where no humans are involved, the film has a more contemporary feel to it, with the world of Zootopia drawing inspiration from real-world based architecture, vehicles, and government agencies like a police force and the DMV. The film comes from Bryon Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph).
You have already seen what it takes to make a movie that has never been seen be-fur, what it takes to design an animal metropolis that has been designed by animals, figuring out the story, and the animation process. Now its time for some fun facts. Little fun tid bits that we learned with our fellow journalists during this fun event. Below are 50 things you need to know about Zootopia which includes how the directors and producers are continuing Disney’s legacy, the amount of research that went into the film, the new animation technology that was used in the film, the recording process, how many leaves are on a tree, and so much more. Check it all out below.
