The Academy Award-nominated Ralph Breaks the Internet is now available for you to own. Disney’s latest sequel brings back those lovable digital misfits for an all-new adventure that takes Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) on an all-new adventure across the digital space. Their search for a valuable replacement part to help fix Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush takes the two to the Internet, where they run to all sorts of new characters like the tough street racing queen Shank (Gal Gadot) and trend-setting algorithm Yesss (Taraji P. Henson).

This very fun sequel comes with a number of equally fun, but very standard, bonus features. However, they may be of interest to those who love a deep dive into the animation and story process. These features take a look at all of those layers and how each team must work in tandem to make sure everything fits together nicely. Check out a mini film review plus a review of all the bonus features below.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2

Ralph Breaks The Internet
Directors: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
Writers: Phil Johnston, Pamela Ribon
Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Ed O’Neill, Alfred Molina, Alan Tudyk
Studio: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 112 Minutes
Release Date: November 21, 2018

Wreck-It Ralph saw Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) as a pair of lovable arcade sprite misfits in an animated film about acceptance, identity, and self-worth. The film is that perfect blend of humor and heart supported by terrific animation and video game nostalgia. It’s been six years since we last saw the two in a film whose ending seemed perfect. Now we are getting a sequel. Don’t worry, it’s not about Ralph and Vanellope causing trouble in the arcade. No, this time the two go to the Internet in Ralph Breaks the Internet, a play on the very popular phrase when something goes viral. While not as strong as the first, the film goes far beyond humoring with all too easy Internet tropes and gags.

There’s plenty of emotional depth and some surprises that will have you wanting more. However, the pacing and editing are just some of the issues that slow things down. But it’s not enough to ruin what is a fun sequel. Check out my full review below.

Ralph Breaks The Internet KnowsMore

There are only a few more weeks left until Disney releases Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph. The film will see the return of Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), two arcade sprites who venture to the Internet in search of a replacement part for Sugar Rush, Vanellope’s game.

Along the way they will run into technological advancements they’ve never seen before like social media, algorithms, and the dreaded auto fill search bar. Disney has released a brand new clip featuring the two running into KnowsMore, a bit of an outdated version of the auto fill. Think AskJeeves. Additionally, there is a Happy Birthday Internet video for this Internet Day. Check them both out below.

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.

50 Things You Need To Know About Disney’s ‘Zootopia’

Zootopia Header

Zootopia marks the return of Disney using animals who can walk and talk. While this isn’t be the first time we have seen such a film where no humans are involved, the film has a more contemporary feel to it, with the world of Zootopia drawing inspiration from real-world based architecture, vehicles, and government agencies like a police force and the DMV. The film comes from Bryon Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph).

You have already seen what it takes to make a movie that has never been seen be-fur, what it takes to design an animal metropolis that has been designed by animals, figuring out the story, and the animation process. Now its time for some fun facts. Little fun tid bits that we learned with our fellow journalists during this fun event. Below are 50 things you need to know about Zootopia which includes how the directors and producers are continuing Disney’s legacy, the amount of research that went into the film, the new animation technology that was used in the film, the recording process, how many leaves are on a tree, and so much more. Check it all out below.

Disney’s ‘Zootopia’: Making A Movie That’s Never Been Seen “Be-Fur”

Zootopia

Disney’s upcoming animated Zootopia is a buddy cop comedy that sees the return of talking animals. But it is something unlike anything you have seen before. That’s because this film will feature anthropomorphic, bipedal animal characters in a modern world with no humans.

But directors Bryon Howard (Tangled, Bolt), co-director Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), and producer Clark Spencer (Lilo and Stitch, Winnie The Pooh) didn’t just set out to make another generic talking animal film. They wanted to give Disney fans and audiences of all ages something substantial, something a person could believe in if a place like Zootopia actually existed.

So they set off to do research on almost everything from the way an animal moves all the way down to the individual strands of fur on their body. And when you combine that with a great story, and the classic Disney tradition, you get the makings of a film that is not only entertaining, but has the potential to be great.

Earlier this Fall, Geeks Of Doom was part of a group of journalists who were invited to see how a film like Zootopia comes together, the amount of research that is put into the film to design the look and feel of the characters and their surroundings, and what it takes to get the story just right. Below you will get to see what we learned about the 2016 film, the tour that we took on their temporary campus while the original animation studio underwent renovations, and much more.

Disney In Depth banner

At the bi-annual Destination D event at Anaheim’s Disneyland Hotel last week, the Disney D23 Official Disney Fan Club hosted a series of events that focused on the legendary history of Disney animated features. Hundreds of Disney fans gathered inside the resort’s convention center to obtain exclusive access to lectures, concerts and footage. Over the coming weeks inside Disney In Depth, I will cover some of those topics featured in the fascinating presentations held at Destination D. As for now, this edition will focus on the exciting future of the division we know as Disney animation.

Walt Disney Animation Studios appears like it is entering that third renaissance we have all been waiting for. With the beautiful The Princess and the Frog and delightful Tangled leading the way, the studio that suffered from creative missteps like Home on the Range is now producing hit films that resonate with audiences and appeal to critics to boot. During “Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios Today,” animator Darrin Butters hosted an appealing round-up of the studio’s newest projects.

Warning: This edition contains some spoilers of details mentioned at the event.
