Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2’s first teaser teased cotton candy aesthetics and over-the-top adorableness, and the movie’s newest trailer promises way more fluffiness.
Wreck-It Ralph 2 takes Ralph out of the arcade cabinet and throws him into the World Wide Web. He’s confronted by a never-ending series of fast-moving lanes, strange characters emerging from strange corners of the internet and even the insides of a website called “BuzzTube.”
The internet is infinitely bigger than an arcade cabinet, and so are the possibilities for storytelling. Co-director Rich Moore said the creative team’s decision to remove Ralph from his homey arcade cabinet and toss him into the vast digital unknown was intended to produce a bigger story.
“To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” Moore said.
The official synopsis for Disney’s sequel reads:
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 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 website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making website “Buzztube.”
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 will be released on Nov. 21.
