The first Wreck-It Ralph was filled to the brim with video game cameos. Now with the sequel exploring the internet, you bet that we’re going to meet more characters and more Easter eggs. It’s been confirmed that the movie will have an appearance from all the Disney princesses, and thanks to USA Today, we have an image of Ralph and Vanellope running into them.
Check it out:
What’s cool is, Disney actually got all the original voice actresses to come back and reprise their roles for the film. I’m curious if we’re going to get more Disney characters besides the princesses though.
On to original characters for the movie, we also get new images of Alan Tudyk’s Knowsmore and Taraji P. Henson’s Yesss.
Tudyk originally voiced King Candy in Wreck-It Ralph.
Now, he’s coming back to play this sort of avatar for Google.
Director Rich Moore describes KnowsMore as “a little Truman Capote, a little Droopy dog from the old MGM cartoons and a little Mr. Peabody.”
KnowsMore also has the habbit of finishing people’s sentences—much like Google when it auto-fills your questions.
Meanwhile Yesss is a “hip” algorithm running a site called BuzzzTube. Henson describes her character:
“a little snooty because she is smart and she does know the Internet so well. But then she kind of takes a liking to the big lug… There’s something about a really smart person empowering someone who is not as intelligent — it’s like, ‘Wow, see, I’m so good even I can teach you something.’ ”
I’m a big fan of the first movie, and I’m hoping that Disney has found an interesting story to tell with this sequel. With the internet being such a dominant element in youth culture today, I’m sure the kiddies (and some young adults) will find something to relate to.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 comes out Nov. 21.
