Thank you to Disney for sending me out to LA for the Ralph Breaks the Internet Event! All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Wreck-It Ralph is one of my all time favorite movies, so I was super excited when Disney invited me to checkout the sequel, Ralph Breaks The Internet, at the World Premiere! I did so many amazing things over the course of a few days, and one of my favorites was getting to watch the movie. It was so much better than I expected, and totally made me cry. Twice.
There are so many Easter Eggs in this movie I don’t even know where to start. I am sure I didn’t even notice a quarter of them the first time around, so I will have my eyes peeled watching it with the family today. As a Marvel fan girl, you know I was excited for some Marvel mentions! Not only do we get an appearance by Stan Lee, who recently passed away (RIP), we see one of my favorite Guardians. Yea, I was screaming from excitement at that point. Ask anyone in the room, it is true.
The Princess Scene!
Guys. The princess scene is everything. I feel like a broken record about this, but it is. Just when you think it is going to end, it keeps going. And then they pop up again later on and it is even more amazing. To see them all in their comfy shirts, and poking fun at themselves. AMAZING. Truly amazing. I am a huge Disney Princess fan, so I was leery about this scene. But it delivers. And then some.
Ralph Breaks The Internet is so relevant to this day and age. As we can probably all agree, the internet is taking over. There are so many things to get sucked in to, from click bait, to online gaming, to viral videos. In this movie, Ralph and Vanellope discover BuzzzTube which is basically YouTube. On Buzzztube you post videos and vie for the hearts of others. Basically the thumbs up likes that you get on YouTube. Yesss tells Ralph to never read the comments, which is advice I should totally take but never do. The internet isn’t for those with thin skin, that is for sure.
KnowsMore and Yesss are just a few of the new characters in this movie that really bring the humor. Alan Tudyk voices KnowsMore and you should know that I love him. His character is witty and fun, and made me smile every time I saw him on the screen. While Shank, voiced by Gal Gadot, brings a lot more heart than I expected. She is a total badass that Vanellope looks up to, and heck, I do too! She gives some great advice that I probably should take myself.
Heart & Humor
Of course this movie is hilarious. We already know Ralph and Vanellope from Wreck-It Ralph and so you know they are going to get in to some crazy situations. Fix It Felix and Calhoun bring some laughter too! But what I was not expecting was to cry. Twice. This movie brought so much heart. It will teach kids (and maybe some adults too) a really important life lesson. Shank says it in the trailer, there is no rule that best friends have to have the same dream.
Stay Through The Credits!
If you are a movie fan than you know it is often wise to stay through the credits. Ralph Breaks The Internet is no different. There is a mid-credit scene, which is totally awesome. And then there is an end-credit scene, which is even more awesome. Trust me when I say it is worth staying through the long (yes, long) credits. So worth it. Don’t leave. You will regret it.
Overall, this is a must see movie that the whole family is sure to love. Thanksgiving break is the perfect time to take everyone to see it – I know we are taking the girls tonight! Everyone is sure to fall in love with the new characters, and love seeing their favorites from the first movie. Oh, and if you are sensitive like me, bring some tissues.
About Ralph Breaks The Internet
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet – the Netizens – to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss, the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank, a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces – so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
See Ralph Breaks The Internet in theaters 11/21!
