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.

Disney’s Bob Iger Confirms ‘Star Wars’ Production Slowdown

Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. When Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise back in 2012, the studio planned on expanding the cinematic universe by releasing one film a year. This went beyond the Skywalker saga and was to include spinoffs. However, after the fallout from Solo: A Star Wars Story, it seems like the studio will be hitting the brakes on production. The film was one of the lowest grossing Star Wars films to date, and because of that, the rumor that Lucasfilm would put more spinoffs on hold started to surface. However, Lucasfilm would dismiss those rumors. And now, it looks like there may be some truth to those rumors.

In a new interview with Disney CEO Bob Iger, he says that the future of Star Wars productions will be seeing a slowdown. He confirms that they took on too much too fast and blames himself for the aggressive output. More on the story below.

Dave Bautista May Not Return For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Many have been vocal about how James Gunn was unjustly fired after years old obscene tweets resurfaced because of an alt-right ultra conservative hit job. But none have been more vocal than Dave Bautista. The actor who plays Drax has gone on record saying he would consider not returning to reprise his role. That was followed by an ultimatum that if they did not use Gunn’s script, he would walk out on the project entirely, regardless of contractual obligations. Since then, Disney and Marvel Studios have decided to put the sequel on hold until they can figure out the next move.

While it’s still not clear if the studio will use Gunn’s script – he had finished an early draft before he was fired – it appears Bautista may not return at all. More on the story below.

Disney Stands By Decision To Fire James Gunn

It has been weeks since Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was fired over years-old tweets unearthed by alt-right personalities with a vendetta. Since that time, there has been an overwhelming amount of support from fans and the cast to get the former director rehired so that he could direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

However, it’s being reported that Disney will be standing by its decision to fire the director. And in a surprising turn of events, Marvel Studios supports their parent company’s decision. More on the story below.

Disney’s Star Wars TV slate will be expanding beyond the traditional TV broadcast format. In addition to the anime-style Star Wars: Resistance, which will air on The Disney Channel, there is also the live-action series which will air on Disney’s streaming service. We’ve known that Jon Favreau will be working on the series, but no other information about it has been provided… until now. There’s a new report that says the untitled series will have a $100 million production price tag, making it one of the most expensive shows to produce next to HBO’s Game Of Thrones and other big budget shows. Additionally, there is a rumor that says the live-action show could be about the Outer Rim planet Mandalore – the home planet of characters like Jango Fett, Boba Fett, and Sabine. More on the story below.
