We didn’t get one in 2017, but the wait for a new Walt Disney Animation Disney animation studios film is almost over, and so is the even longer wait for the Wreck-it-Ralph sequel. In 2012, the animated hit introduced the world to John C. Reilly‘s title character, an old-school video game hero who quite literally broke out of his mold and made his way to modern games before finding his place in the broad tapestry of video game entertainment. Now, the sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 teases what’s to come for Reilly & Co. when they take on the wild world of the world wide web.
Although the first trailer is unsurprisingly light on plot details, it’s got plenty of humor. The Internet is pretty easy to mock, and you can see that the filmmakers are having a ball poking fun at clickbait and silly little games. It will be interesting to see how far they go and what targets they put in their sights, but at the very least, we know the film will still have the charm of the first movie.
The sequel sees the return of director Rich Moore, who co-directed the smash hit Zootopia in between Wreck-It Ralph movies, alongside co-director Phil Johnston. Wreck-it-Ralph 2 will also see Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) and Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) adventuring into the digital age.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 arrives in theaters just in time for the holidays on November 21, 2018. Watch the first trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2:
“Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.” Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-Ralph 2” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
