During our time in Los Angeles for the Christopher Robin Event, we were able to attend the press day at Disney Animation Studios for Ralph Breaks the internet–the 2nd Wreck it Ralph movie.
As part of the press day, we watched a bit of Ralph Breaks the Internet, and chatted with Director Rich Moore, Director/Writer Phil Johnston, and Producer Clark Spencer. We were also able to explore the Disney Animation Studio, which was pretty amazing.
I love that everywhere you turn, the studio has images and quotes from various social media accounts that have shared about Ralph Breaks the Internet. You wouldn’t even know it if one was chosen from your account–it’s their way of reminding everyone that their work is important and people are exciting and waiting for it to hit theaters!
We were able to chat with Ralph Breaks the Internet Director Rich Moore, Director/Writer Phil Johnston, and Producer Clark Spencer for about an hour and it was mind blowing!
New Cast Members for Ralph Breaks the Internet?
Yes! The newest cast member is Yesss, and she is played by Taraji P. Henson. She’s an algorithm who has a video channel called BuzzTube (similar to YouTube) and is always showing off the newest trends. She is sure to have the absolute newest fads because her hair and clothes are constantly changing based on what fashion news she’s learning from the web.
The creators of the film started with the question, “What does the internet look like?” They visited One Wilshire on a research trip. One Wilshire is the building that houses all the connections for any and all internet in North America–it stores miles and smiles of wires and servers that connect the world to the internet.
What’s a Netizen? How about a Net User?
Inside Ralph Breaks the Internet, there are two types of citizens:
Net Users: The internet versions of us–our avatars. They visit sites on the internet.
Netizens: Full time citizens of the internet. They work at the individual websites and help people.
Ralph Breaks the Internet picks up right where Wreck it Ralph ended, and follows Ralph and Vanellope through their discovery of the internet as they try to fix the Sugar Rush game. I can’t wait to see this movie–and neither can my boys! You can watch Ralph Breaks the internet in theaters on November 21!
