Enter the world of Ralph Breaks the Internet in new VR game at Disney Springs

Ralph Breaks VR - Vanellope

Break into the internet with Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz in your own ‘Netizens’ disguise to play Ralph Breaks VR from The VOID, ILMxLAB, and Walt Disney Animation Studios. The hyper-reality version of the upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet will provide players a multi-sensory, immersive experience launching on November 21st.

The game takes players in teams of 4 into the internet of the movie. Using the special VR packs designed by The VOID you join Ralph and Vanellope on a totally immersive adventure that will take you one step beyond reality.

The VOID is a global leader in immersive virtual experiences, and ILMxLAB is Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment division. They teamed up with Walt Disney Animation Studios to create two new locations, Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and a new antagonist, B.E.V. voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.”

Wreck-it Ralph VR

“It’s incredible to work on an experience like Ralph Breaks VR that lets you live inside a film you’ve spent years creating,” said Pamela Ribon, Co-Writer for Ralph Breaks the Internet and Writer for Ralph Breaks VR. “ILMxLAB and The VOID have built a world where Ralph and Vanellope really come alive around you.”

If the experience of Ralph Breaks VR is anything like the Star Wars version at The VOID, then expect the reservation times for this to fill up early.

Watch the first trailer for the game here:

“There is nothing more magical than stepping inside a rich animated world – especially one filled with color, life, humor and delightful characters as is the case with Ralph Breaks the Internet,” said Vicki Dobbs Beck, Executive in Charge at ILMxLAB. “The upcoming launch of this project marks another successful collaboration between ILMxLAB and The VOID, with the incredible opportunity to work alongside the talented teams at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Ralph Breaks VR is an experience that brings a smile to your face and the desire to have another go around with friends and family.”

“Designing the elements that pull you irresistibly into the unique world of Ralph and Vanellope has been an incredibly fun process,” said Curtis Hickman, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of The VOID. “What we’ve created together with ILMxLAB is an astounding adventure that allows people to experience a unique extension of Wreck-It Ralph’s detailed characters, environments and stories.”

Ralph Breaks VR will be available at all North American VOID Experience Centers starting November 21st, the same day the movie telnets its way into theaters everywhere.

Three new clips from Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet

In just a few days we welcome back big screen video-game bad guy Wreck-it Ralph and racing princess Vanellope von Schweetz in the anticipated sequel “Ralph Breaks the Internet.” In the 2012 film “Wreck-it Ralph” the pair were thrust together in order to save Vanellope’s game ‘Sugar Rush’ and developed a lasting friendship. Now they have to venture into the fast-paced world of the internet on a new mission.

“Ralph and Vanellope are imperfect characters,” says Academy Award-winning director Rich Moore (“Zootopia”), who directed the original film. “But we love them because of their flaws. Their friendship is so genuine—the chemistry between them so engaging—that I think we were all anxious to know more about these characters.”

You may recognize a few of your own frustrations with the internet in these three clips:

Do you have a favorite moment in the above clips? I like that Vanellope gets a chance to show off her racing skills again.

About the film:

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” 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.”

Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018

Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer introduces new character

After the ending of Toy Story 3 left Woody, Buzz and and all their friends, life was looking good for Pixar’s Toy Story friends. The first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 heavily implies that an emotional trainwreck awaits these cherished toys.

I love the song choice. Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” is one of my favorites and an emotionally charged song with a lot of levels, just like the Toy Story franchise.

“Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” said director Josh Cooley. “And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”

Not exactly sure what the fork the forky creature is doing in the trailer, though.

ut Forky insists that he is NOT a toy! An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip. “The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose,” said Cooley. “A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”

Filmmakers called on comedian Tony Hale to provide the voice of Forky. “It’s a huge thrill to be part of the Toy Story family,” he said. “But it’s going to take a while for it to really sink in.”

Said Cooley, “When we thought up this character, Tony was the first actor that came to mind and I’m thrilled he accepted. Tony’s performance as Forky is a comedy salad of confidence, confusion, and empathy… served by hilarious spork.”

How were filmmakers able to convince Hale to give voice to Forky? “A utensil’s existential crisis?” he asked. “I’m in!”

In addition to the teaser trailer, we also learned our first official synposis of the movie as Woody and Buzz embark on a quest to find Woody’s romantic interest, Bo Peep:

Everyone’s favorite pull-string cowboy sheriff Woody, along with his best friends Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, are happy taking care of their kid, Bonnie, until a new toy called “Forky” arrives in her room. According to Forky, a spork-turned-craft-project, he’s not a toy at all—and he’d rather skip this big adventure completely, if only they’d let him.

Coming June 21, 2019 – Toy Story 4 from Pixar. Are you ready for the toys to be back?

Frozen 2 moves up release to make play for the really big box office bucks

It’s going to snow dollar signs earlier than expected in 2019. Disney has moved the sequel to its animated mega-hit Frozen up five days from its original Thanksgiving opening date. Frozen 2 will now open on Friday November 22.

The move switches the film to what is essentially an open weekend as Fox had previously claimed the date for an untitled Fox/Marvel movie. Since Disney now effectively owns Fox, even though the Disney-Fox merger hasn’t officially gone through, moving that film to another weekend won’t be a problem.

Disney likes to open films on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Recent titles opening on that date include, “Coco,” “Moana,” “The Good Dinosaur,” and this year’s “Ralph Breaks The Internet.” Oh yeah, the original Frozen opened wide on Thanksgiving Eve too.

The weekend before Thanksgiving is a popular opening slot for tent-pole franchises like Harry Potter, Twlight, and the Hunger Games. Perhaps this is Disney’s way of saying expect a Frozen 3, 4 and probably 5. Or more likely, Disney hopes it can now own multiple weekends for its frozen juggernaut.

“Frozen” was a huge box office hit. It’s opening five day holiday weekend total was $93.5 million and the total worldwide box office currently stands at $1.28 billion. A number sure to thaw any frozen heart in Burbank should the sequel even approach it.

The animated feature from Disney also won two Oscars. One for best animated feature and the other for best original song, “Let It Go” from husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. We will see if the sequel reach the same artistic heights of the original.

Are you excited to see Anna and Elsa and all their friends back up on the big screen?

Ralph and Vanellope go from “Ralph Breaks the Internet” to a theme park near you

In “Ralph Breaks the Internet” Ralph & Vanellope von Schweetz venture beyond Litwak’s arcade onto the internet to save Candy Crush. Soon, they’ll be leaving the arcade again for special meet and greet opportunities at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

The pair will drop in to Disney California Adventure’s Hollywood Land for a special appearance beginning November 9. It takes a few days more for them to make it to EPCOT where they’ll be available to meet with guests in Innoventions West on November 21.

Even more Wreck-it Ralph is coming too!

Disney also revealed that guests who visit the Imagination Institute, aka the ImageWorks area of the Imagination! Pavilion, will be able to visit a special portal into the internet where Ralph and Vanellope will be available for regular encounters.

Moving into the realm of rumors now, there have been some persistant rumors that a Wreck-it Ralph ride is coming to Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom in the former Alien Encounter / Stitch space. Not sure about that, as we haven’t heard anything official or seen anything filed with the county for a work permit, but we do know that a VR experience featuring the Wreck-it Ralph experience is coming to The VOID at Disney Springs at some point. It is expected to arrive sometime this fall.

Watch the latest trailer here:

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” soundtrack details released by Walt Disney Records

In the Disney animated feature “Ralph Breaks the Internet” we return to the lives of Wreck-it Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) as they deal with a major new threat to the popular Candy Crush game. The solution lies somewhere on this thing called ‘The Internet’ and so the pair set off on an epic journey. An epic movie deserves and epic soundtrack and fans will be able to download the music from “Ralph Breaks the Internet” beginning November 16 with the physical CD available on November 30.

The soundtrack from Walt Disney Records features original songs “A Place Called Slaughter Race” performed in the film by Sarah Silverman and Gal Gadot; “Zero,” written and performed by Imagine Dragons; score by composer Henry Jackman (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Big Hero 6”), and “In This Place,” a pop version of “A Place Called Slaughter Race,” performed by Julia Michaels.

The soundtrack and film feature “A Place Called Slaughter Race,” featuring Sarah Silverman, voice of Vanellope von Schweetz. In the vein of classic “I want” songs in the Disney canon such as “Someday My Prince Will Come” and “Part of Your World,” the song showcases Vanellope’s desire to be part of the world outside Sugar Rush—to grow as a racer and as a person.

The song also features the singing debut of Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”) as Shank. The music was composed by Oscar-winning songwriter/composer Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pocahontas” and “Aladdin”) and the lyrics were written by Phil Johnston and Grammy-winning producer Tom MacDougall (Frozen; Executive Vice President, Music at Disney).

The multi-platinum, Grammy-winning band, Imagine Dragons, wrote and recorded the end-credit song “Zero” for the film, embracing the struggle Ralph has with his evolving friendship with Vanellope. “Zero” is also featured on the band’s upcoming fourth studio album Origins available November 9.

According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song. “It’s a pretty timely movie in a lot of ways in that it addresses some of the issues of identity and loneliness unique to this internet generation,” says Reynolds. “Ralph’s internal struggle for self-acceptance really resonated with us, and this song speaks to that.”

Watch the music video from “Zero” here:

Composer Henry Jackman, who scored 2012’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” returns to score the follow-up. Jackman’s mission was to create a score that’s reminiscent of the first film, while embracing the new story and the vast, uncharted new world of the internet that Ralph and Vanellope must navigate to retrieve a part to save her game.

Says Jackman, “‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is one of the best animated films of recent times and I was really proud of the score. What makes this one different? There’s a clue in the title, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’—we’ve moved from the arcade to the internet. While we can retain some of the original material, there’s a new layer we had to create and integrate. There’s a distinction between arcade electronica and internet electronica, which sounds more modern.”

“There’s so many fun things to enjoy,” continues Jackman. “But I think the universality comes from the fact that it’s an important archetypal friendship story. Hidden behind all of this amazing technology and imagery is something very solid emotionally and narratively.”

Filmmakers called on Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels to perform the second end-credit song, “In This Place,” a pop version of “A Place Called Slaughter Race.”

“I think one of my favorite things about ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ is Vanellope,” says Michaels, “because she’s just completely misunderstood. I think a lot of people feel that way—misunderstood—and go through life trying to find their power. And when they find it, it’s really beautiful.”

About “Ralph Breaks the Internet”

In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C.

Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” sneak peek coming soon to Disneyland and Walt Disney World

The Disney movie Wreck-it Ralph ended without any real resolution for Ralph himself and even though Vanellope got the victory she desired, it turns out that was short lived.

Ralph Breaks the Internet introduces new ‘influencer’ cast at New York Comic-Con

Disney animation brought “Ralph Breaks the Internet” to the New York Comic Con, introducing fans to the cast and characters in a special panel, including some of the biggest personalities on the real-world internet. Dani Fernandez, who also hosted the panel, Colleen Ballinger, and Tiffany Herrera, can all be seen and heard in “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

As digital influencers, they were called on to portray themselves, adding validity to the internet depicted in the film. Flula Borg, German actor, comedian and YouTube personality (DJ Flula), lends his voice to Maybe, the dedicated assistant of website entrepreneur Yesss.

GloZell Green, rapper/YouTube personality, was previously announced as the voice of Little Debbie from Slaughter Race.

“We wanted to cast these roles with people who embody the best of the internet,” said director Rich Moore.

The panel also screened 20 minutes of the film, which included many never before seen clips, and generally received rave reviews. Looks like Disney waiting for the right movie to release its second sequel.

Which other digital influencers do you think should be in “Ralph Breaks the Internet?”

Ink & Paint documentary series will bring important Disney animation history to life

The fantastic book “Ink & Paint” by Mindy Johnson tells the mostly untold stories of the women of Walt Disney’s Animation studio. Without the work of these talented artists, the Disney we know today would never exist nor would any of the classics. A new eight-episode documentary series is being filmed for the upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service Disney plans to roll out in 2019.

If this reminds you the breakout movie “Hidden Figures” that’s the idea. It follows women as they navigate their career opportunities inside the Walt Disney Animation Studios. With first person stories and archival research, we learn about the artist’s early days when they were limited to Ink & Paint assignments through to today where they lead departments and direct films.

One of the good news for the series is that Ruthie Thompson, one of the early Ink & Pain women is still kicking at an amazing 108 years old. Thompson, who we’ve covered before, started at Disney Animation in 1937 as a cel cleaner and eventual rose through the ranks to become a supervising scene planner.

Author Mindy Johnson’s book was sanctioned by Disney but has been praised as an invaluable look into the unsung heroes of Disney animation’s early days. It contains many newly discovered stories and unprecedented access to Disney’s archival resources. If you’d like to pick up a copy yourself. It’s on sale on Amazon today (your purchase via this link helps support The Disney Blog).

If this is the kind of content Disney is hoping to produce for its streaming service, there’s hope that this thing might actually be very good.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” new trailer and poster

Get ready gamers? Disney’s back with a sequel to the very popular Wreck-it Ralph movie in “Ralph Breaks the Internet.” Disney has reunited the original director (Rich Moore), producer (Clark Spencer), and co-writer (Phil Johnson) for the sequel.

Video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game. Their quest takes them to the vast world of the internet, a world Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.

Yes, Wreck-it Ralph is back and this time the whole internet is in danger. Watch the new wide screen trailer here:

Disney also released a few new photos and a new poster. There are a lot of characters, including some iconic Disney ones in the movie. How many do you recognize?

The Race is On

When video-game bad guy Ralph and Vanellope head to the internet in search of a replacement part for her game, Sugar Rush, they find themselves in the middle of Slaughter Race, an online racing game set in an apocalyptic world that’s populated by first-person players and gaming characters. As a racer herself, Vanellope is immediately drawn to this fierce and fun crew of racers who, unlike in other racing games, are much more multidimensional than at first glance. Among the core team of game characters in Slaughter Race are Felony (voice of Ali Wong), Butcher Boy (voice of Timothy Simons), Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), Little Debbie (voice of Glozell Green) and Pyro (voice of Hamish Blake).

Virus Alert

In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” Vanellope befriends a tough and talented driver in an intense online racing game, leaving Ralph feeling left out, confused and willing to do anything to preserve his friendship with Vanellope. But even with the best intentions, Ralph’s efforts don’t always go as planned—particularly when he enlists the help of Double Dan, the proprietor of the dark web’s apothecary. Massive, slimy and decidedly creepy with a second head called Little Dan tucked into his neck folds, Double Dan formulates destructive viruses.

When “Wreck-It Ralph” opened on Nov. 2, 2012, it turned in the highest opening weekend ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film at the time of release. There are high expectations for this sequel.

Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” makes animated feature box office history

Congratulations to all the crew at Pixar Animation Studios, their latest film “Incredibles 2” just made Box Office history as the first animated film to earn more than $600 million at the domestic box office. No other animated film has ever crossed $500 million, so this is quite an accomplishment.

“Incredibles 2” is only the 9th movie ever to cross $600M at the domestic box office. Disney’s having a great 2018 as both “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” have also crossed that high water mark.

With a worldwide treasure chest of $1.16 billion, the Parr family is almost ready to take the lead in the race for highest worldwide gross. This weekend they put “Minions” ($1.15 billion) in the rear view mirror. Disney’s “Frozen” is ahead with $1.27 billion. But “Incredibles 2” has a long way to go to get there and not much more time left to get there. In its 12th week of release, the film has yet to open in Germany and Italy, but that’s it.

With numbers like this, I think we can put to rest any worries about a Pixar slump. Disney’s California Adventure has capitalized on the popularity of The Incredibles with a re-theme of their big roller coaster ride, Walt Disney World was more tentative with just a summer festival. I would not be surprised if something more permanent was announced shortly in Orlando.

“Incredibles 2” is still playing at a number of theaters, in fact, Disney added theaters for the Labor Day weekend. Why not head out tonight and see it again?
