After almost six years, ‘Wreck it Ralph’ is back to wreck some more stuff!
The classic video game ‘villain’ has left the comfort of his retro arcade and travels to a new and exciting place – The Internet. The sequel to the 2012 hit ‘Wreck It Ralph’, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2’ brings together the original cast of John C. Reilly as Ralph, the bad-good protagonist, along with his partner Vanellope von Schweetz, voiced by Sarah Silverman, and their adventures that follow after they are zapped into the strange world of cyberspace.
Rich Moore, the director of the first movie and the co-director of the sequel, explained, “A part in Vanellope’s game ‘Sugar Rush’ breaks, and in order to preserve that and save the way of life they have in the arcade, they go to this very modern place which is going to put their friendship to the test.”
This movie will have both of the characters going online – literally – taking over the strange land of internet full of annoying online ads, eBay auctions for cute cat pictures, and mindless—or ‘Zen’ as Ralph puts it—mobile games.
The original movie handled video games in a hilarious and clever way, and it’ll be interesting to see the treatment of video games in the sequel.
The main takeaway, however, from the whole trailer was the hilarious scene of Ralph feeding the bunny pancakes until it explodes, and if there is more stuff related to games like this instead of random internet sites, then we have a winner with this movie.
The movie is set to theatres this November, so let’s wait and see if it can top the first one.
