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.
Among one of the best things about Ralph Breaks The Internet is when Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) sings “A Place Called Slaughter Race.” It is a hilarious satire on Disney songs where a princess has their own musical moments and expresses their search for what they truly desire through song. The self-deprecating sequence pokes fun at how these princesses break into song spontaneously and is set against the grimy and deadly world of the racing game Slaughter Race.
Now fans of that song can now experience it in all its fun and silly glory with the newly released “A Place Called Slaughter Race” music video. Check it out below.
Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet takes its titular character (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) out of Mr. Litwak’s arcade and inserts them into the world of the Internet where they will have an adventure of a lifetime while also meeting new friends like Yesss (Taraji P Henson) and Shank (Gal Gadot).
We and our fellow journalists were recently invited to attend the press conference for the sequel, which is directed by Phil Johnston and Rich Moore from a screenplay penned by Johnston and Pamela Ribon. While there, we learned a few more things about Ralph Breaks the Internet including Vanellope’s own princess song, the recording process, a possible sequel, and so much more. Check it all out, 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.
