Of all the Disney movies, princess or otherwise, Wreck-It Ralph is easily my favorite. And why wouldn’t it be? It is entertaining, highly inventive, hilarious, and infinitely quotable. Further, it was cast to perfection, has a fantastic score by Henry Jackman, and then, of course, there’s a great message for everyone – something Rich Moore and Phil Johnston seem to pull off effortlessly.
We couldn’t wait for a follow up, but the above-pictured duo took a little detour from Litwak’s Arcade – to the lushly detailed animal kingdom of Zootopia – before outdoing themselves with Ralph and Vanellope’s second adventure on the big screen. But it was worth the wait, and it was a thrill to speak to the creative minds behind the smashing sequel. We had a blast talking with co-writers/co-directors Moore and Johnston about Ralph Breaks the Internet.
This sequel upgrades the heart of the original, has style for miles, and takes fun and excitement to the next level (check out or review of it here). Enjoy our time with these delightful and insightful filmmakers.
Ralph Breaks the Internet is co-directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston. The film stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, and Taraji P. Henson. Distributed by Walt Disney Animation Studios, this exciting sequel is set for release on November 21, 2018.
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 guy 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 webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube”.
