"Ralph Breaks the Internet" (2018) is the Walt Disney Pictures sequel to "Wreck-It Ralph" (2012). Here we have free downloadable coloring pages of "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
Walt Disney Animation Studios does not do a lot of sequels to its feature-length animation films. So, "Ralph Breaks the Internet" is not a typical Disney film.
Two Disney sequels that stand out were "Winnie the Pooh" (2011), which was a sequel to "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" (1977), and "The Rescuers Down Under" (1990), which was a sequel to "The Rescuers" (1977).
Walt Disney Animation Studios does a lot of other sequels, but they are usually not released theatrically or are not feature-length.
The next Walt Disney Animation Studios feature-length theatrical sequel is expected to be "Frozen 2" in 2019.
The general plot of "Ralph Breaks the Internet" is that Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz steal a car to raise money and then create a series of popular videos when that doesn't work.
For instance, Sonic the Hedgehog, Buzz Lightyear, and C-3PO from "Star Wars" appear in "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
By far, though, the most popular guest stars in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" are the princesses from other Walt Disney films.
The princesses who appear in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" include: Jennifer Hale as Cinderella, Kate Higgins as Aurora, Jodi Benson as Ariel, Paige O'Hara as Belle, Linda Larkin as Jasmine, Irene Bedard as Pocahontas, Ming-Na Wen as Mulan, Anika Noni Rose as Tiana, Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, and Kelly Macdonald as Merida.
The voice actors who voice the princesses are the same ones that voice the characters in their most recent films.
Snow White also appears, voiced by screenwriter Pamela Ribon.
A lot of other Disney characters appear in "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
If you know who all those characters are without having to look them up, you watch a lot of Disney animated films.
Alan Menken wrote an original song for "Ralph Breaks the Internet," "A Place Called Slaughter Race." Menken has written music for many Disney films, including some of the most popular such as "The Little Mermaid" (1989).
Disney released "Ralph Breaks the Internet" in the United States on 21 November 2018. The release date in the United Kingdom is 30 November 2018.
"Ralph Breaks the Internet" finished first at the box office in the United States during its opening weekend. This was the second-best Thanksgiving opening ever for Disney, only behind "Frozen."
The animators put a lot of work into "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
The credits for "Ralph Breaks the Internet" feature Ralph "rickrolling" the audience. If you don't know what that means, watch the film.
Most people who watch "Ralph Breaks the Internet" are most fascinated by the appearance of the Disney princesses.
Some of the Disney Princesses haven't been seen in a long time.
The animators had difficulty creating some of the princesses because they had never been portrayed in modern animation.
So, the animators had to translate the original hand-drawn characters into three-dimensional characters. Thus, even though all of the Disney princesses appeared in their own films, some have a very new look in "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
There are lots of very current references in "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
For instance, certain websites are key parts of the plot of "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
Among the sites mentioned in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" are eBay and YouTube, thought YouTube is called "BuzzTube."
Rich Moore, who also directed "Wreck-It Ralph," directs "Ralph Breaks the Internet" along with Phil Johnston.
The worldwide premiere of "Ralph Breaks the Internet" was on 5 November 2018 at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. That is where many new films premiere.
"Ralph Breaks the Internet" is the 57th feature-length film by Walt Disney Animation Studios.,
Most people like "Ralph Breaks the Internet," and it has gotten positive reviews.
There is no word yet on whether "Ralph Breaks the Internet" will lead to another sequel in the "Wreck-It Ralph" series.
However, the Ralph character has made such a good impression on audiences that another sequel is almost inevitable.
