RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

Last month, Disney invited a select group of journalists to Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA, where they previewed Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph. This is one of the first major theatrical animated sequels Disney will be releasing. Set in a new world outside of the Mr. Litwak’s arcade, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) embark on a quest to find a replacement part for Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush on the Internet. On their journey, they will see that the Internet is much larger than anything they’ve ever imagined.

We were able to share with you some of the things we learned about the upcoming sequel. Now I sit down for a one on three interview with Josie Trinidad (head of story), Jason Hand (story artist) and Natalie Nourigat (story artist) to talk about developing a story like Ralph Breaks the Internet, making sure their voices are heard during discussions, what stays on and what gets thrown out, saving the character Knowsmore, and more. Check out our interview with the story team below.

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

There is a lot of work that goes into animating a film like Ralph Breaks the Internet. And the highly anticipated Wreck-It Ralph sequel had to bring in something new and fresh to keep fans and audiences interested. So what better way to do that than to take Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) out of Mr. Litwak’s Arcade, and throw them into the Internet. Seriously, how much damage could lovable arcade misfits cause? Well, as the title suggests, quite a lot.

We got a chance to join our fellow journalists to catch a sneak peek of Ralph Breaks the Internet. While a lot of the footage was still rough and unfinished, it looked like the sequel will be a promising follow-up. During our time, we got to talk to different teams who contributed to the film, including the story, environment, and more. So how frequently does the story team have to collaborate with directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston? How do they create those environments? How do you visualize the Internet? Find out below with 50 Things You Need To Know About Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Dactyl Hill Squad review

Dactyl Hill Squad
Dactyl Hill Squad Series Book 1
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
Written by Daniel José Older
Publisher: Arthur A. Levine Books | Scholastic
Release Date: September 11, 2018

Magdalys Roca, an orphan girl at the Colored Orphans Asylum, dreams of finding her scattered family, especially her brother Montez, fighting on the front lines in the Civil War. The children were on their way to the theater, when they were stopped by Magistrate Riker, who scared them with threats of paperwork, or he would have to take the children in as fugitive slaves. He does allow them to continue on, but soon after, all hell breaks loose, as the Draft Riots begin. The orphanage is burned, some children are abducted, and all hope seems lost. In the midst of it all, Magdalys seems to have a close connection to the dinosaurs – did I mention dinosaurs are ridden like horses? It’s up to her and her Dactyl Hill Squad to save the children and then go find her family.
