Disney unveiled the first footage of Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 at the D23 Expo that took place in Anaheim, California, on Friday, July 14. The studio also announced that Taraji P. Henson had joined the cast to voice a new character, the digital trendsetter Yesss who is the algorithm for a site called Buzzaholic.
The footage features Disney princesses crossing path with C-3PO, the most uptight droid in the Star Wars saga. Based on the footage, it’s revealed that the plot of the 2013 Wreck-It Ralph will revolve around Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) and Ralph (John C. Reilly) going into the internet to obtain a missing piece for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Crush.
Ralph and Vanellope meet Yesss once they make it into the internet, as seen in the footage. Ralph tells her he wants to “go viral” and she explains that the internet is very segregated. But there is one place where everyone shares all the same likes, it’s OhMyDisney.com, the happiest place online.
There are a flying Iron Man, Millennium Falcon docked nearby as well as Tinker Bell flying by Ralph, who says that he’s “going to call [her] Stinker Smell.” The footage also features C-3PO saying that he misses Captain Solo after many of the princesses keep mistaking him with other “Star Wars” droids. The footage ends with Ralph and Vanellope heading toward what seems to be the inside of a cell phone.
Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnson, Wreck-It Ralph 2 opens in U.S. theaters on November 21, 2018.
The voice cast includes Jodi Benson (Ariel), Paige O’Hara (Belle), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel), Kelly Macdonald (Merida), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana) and Kristen Bell (Anna).
