In Wreck-It Ralph 2, Ralph breaks the internet and we've got the poster to prove it. Disney has released a brand new motion poster, and still version of the motion poster, that teases the upcoming sequel to their 2012 animated hit. This time around, Ralph has his sights set a little higher in that, he's actually going to break the internet. At least he doesn't look to be too proud of what he's done, based on the poster.
Disney released the new poster for Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 across all of their social media channels. The motion poster effectively gives the point of the sequel across without giving away too much. It starts out with a search bar, with the text, "Who breaks the internet?" entered. We then zoom out and find Ralph standing below, with an arrow pointing directly toward him, indicating that the loveable, fictional video game character is somehow responsible for breaking one of the world's most important tools. While we still haven't seen much in the way of footage from Wreck-It-Ralph 2, it sounds like Ralph is going to have his work cut out for him.
In Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2, the character's we met in the first movie leave 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 (John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (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 (Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site "BuzzzTube."
Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch are also set to reprise their roles from the first Wreck-It-Ralph. We also know, thanks to some footage that was shown at Disney's D23 Expo last year, that virtually every Disney Princess ever is going to appear in one massive, epic scene, with all of the original voice actresses returning to reprise their roles. Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 is directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, with a release date set for November 21.
Wreck-It-Ralph was a massive hit for Disney in 2012, turning in the biggest opening weekend ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios movie at the time, and ultimately grossing $471 million worldwide. But six years is a long time between movies. Will that time gap ultimately hurt Wreck-It-Ralph 2 at the box office? A lot of that will also depend on how the sequel actually comes out. We'll have a better idea of that when the Wreck-It-Ralph 2 teaser trailer is released, but it may be a little while before that happens.
