Disney has released a new teaser poster for the upcoming sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, as well as a motion poster that adds some spice to the minimalist design. The follow-up finds Rich Moore returning to the director’s chair alongside co-director Phil Johnston as Ralph and Vanellope leave Litwak’s video arcade behind to find a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game Sugar Rush. Where else to find this missing part than on the world wide web? Indeed, the crux of the sequel follows Ralph and Vanellope as the venture into the internet in search of this puzzle piece, while Ralph seemingly wreaks havoc along the way.
2012’s Wreck-It Ralph marked a turning point of sorts for Walt Disney Animation Studios, which had played second-fiddle to Pixar throughout the early 2000s. 2010’s Tangled was a step in the right direction, but Wreck-It Ralph proved that Disney could go toe-to-toe with Pixar in terms of quality and cutting-edge technology, and ironically enough 2012 saw Pixar releasing its first Disney-esque fairy tale in Brave.
Pixar lost some of its pristine track record over those ensuing years, but Disney Animation flourished as Wreck-It Ralph was followed by the smash-hit Frozen the following year, and the well-liked Big Hero 6 in 2014. That, of course, was then followed by the one-two punch of Zootopia and Moana, two of the best Disney movies in history, and while the studio took 2017 off, it looks like they’re back in fine form with this year’s Wreck-It Ralph 2.
It’ll be interesting to see what avenues the film’s story explores, and visually speaking the possibilities are endless. This Wreck-It Ralph 2 poster is very much just a teaser, but hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to see a trailer for this thing. For now, check out the motion poster below followed by the static one-sheet. Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 opens in theaters on November 21st and features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Jack McBrayer, and Jane Lynch.
