Geekery: Wreck-It-Ralph Breaks the Internet

Thankfully (sorry?), this post has nothing to do with Kim Kardashian’s butt.

Disney and Pixar are both bringing back favorites this year – the arcade goes online in the sequel to Wreck it Ralph. John C. Reilly’s affable Ralph and Sarah Silverman’s adorable Vanellope von Schweetz take center stage in this internet adventure. Take a look…

The charm and clever humor from the first movie shines in this first look. It also has all the tropes, but the nods to classic games were used so well in the original that I’m not worried about it. The movie will also carry some of the same themes of the first one, according to director Rich Moore

“Ralph and Vanellope are two people from this little town, this arcade world, who seem to everyone else that they’re exactly the same in their point of view, but upon going to a bigger place, we start to see what cracks develop between these two. We very quickly come to realize they don’t have the same point of view. Ralph likes the comfort of his small town. And Vanellope, upon going to the Internet, starts to think, ‘Just being here is expanding my horizons.’ We bounce the story off that dynamic between the old and the new.”

The marketing for the first one was good about saving the best jokes and moments for the movie, so I’m sure the pancake bunny is just the start.

Ralph Breaks the Internet on November 21st.

    I laughed way harder at the end of that trailer than I should have. There may be something seriously wrong with me.

    • John C. Reilly has this magic ability to create comedy gold out things that would normally be stupid.

      Then there is with me too, because that was FUNNY!
      Ive been wanting a sequel for this and The Incredibles since I watched both in theaters, cant wait!

        Im surpised an incredibles sequal took so long when they pumped out the cars sequals so fast. Wreck it ralph is a great movie, it was a lot different than i expected going in but still really fun. Makes me hubgry to watch though.

          I guess that Cars was pretty disposable, but the Incredibles has higher expectations attached to it. That might have made Pixar take their time over getting a sequel together. I’m hoping for a Zootopia sequel too.

          Use to think the same thing, but when the original writer wrote a comment about “why so long” I understood. He wanted to make a sequel that made sense, not just one because the first was successful, and I can respect that in the land of far too many cash grabs lol.

          Cars made a ton of money in merchandising. Pumping out those movies meant more merchandising opportunities.

      That sad balloon popping noise is a thing of pure comedy genius. I’m looking forward to this.

    • Not only you, trust me 😀

    People think these movies are for kids. So stupid

  • YetAnotherFacelessMan

    I’m a little worried. The first one was really good and it had a lot of specific brands represented in it, but it also had some pretty big emotional stakes. By the end of it, I was pretty moved. This trailer, the first thing it reminded me of was the Emoji movie… Please be good, Wreck it Ralph II.

      Story wise, there wasn’t really a need to continue this.

  • MechBattler

    Remember the bunny. He will not be forgotten.

    • EnTyme

      He’ll be fine. He died in his own game.

    I wonder how they will deal with the 33% porn of the internet 😛
