We’re Going To The Internet – So Excited!

It’s official! My flights are booked, I have a dress, and I’m off to Los Angeles in just a few days for the Red Carpet Premiere of RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET! As Ralph says to Vanellope: “We’re going to the Internet – So excited!

I have been obsessed with this film ever since I saw a sneak preview at D23 Expo. In RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, video-game bad guy Wreck It Ralph (John C. Reilly) and his very best friend, Vanellope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. 

Ralph Breaks the Internet: LIGHTING – Lighting is among the final stages of shot production in animation, though the lighting department is integral to the look of the film as production gets underway. Lighting artists can place individual lights within a scene, but for a scene as big as the one in which Ralph and Vanellope visit the internet for the first time, technology is utilized to place multiples of similar lights—like those on a building, for example—creating a more efficient process for dealing with a massive and diverse number of light sources.

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.

Also helping out is Shank (voice of Gal Gadot) tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a world Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.

BEHIND THE WHEEL -- “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” introduces Shank, a tough and talented driver in an intense online racing game called Slaughter Race. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test—and Shank is impressed. Shank’s approach to racing—and life in general—opens Vanellope’s eyes to the limitless possibilities of the internet and the excitement of a new world that feels like home to her. Featuring Gal Gadot as the voice of Shank, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.  ©2018 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

Ralph Breaks The Internet is a movie about friendship and navigating the relationships we care about and it finally releases on Nov. 21, 2018!

Now that you’ve seen part of the Disney princess scene with Vanellope, you can imagine both how hard it was to not say anything about it and how amazing it was to experience it in a room of about 7000 excited Disney fans.

ROYAL REUNION – In “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2,” Vanellope von Schweetz—along with her best friend Ralph—ventures into the uncharted world of the internet. When she finds herself surrounded by Disney princesses, she’s surprised to learn that she actually has a lot in common with them. The scene, highlighted in a new trailer for the film, features several of the original princess voices, including Auli‘i Cravalho (“Moana”), Kristen Bell (Anna in “Frozen”), Idina Menzel (Elsa in “Frozen”), Kelly MacDonald (Merida in “Brave”), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in “Tangled”), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in “The Princess and the Frog”), Ming-Na Wen (“Mulan”), Irene Bedard (“Pocahontas”), Linda Larkin (Jasmine in “Aladdin”), Paige O’Hara (Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”) and Jodi Benson (Ariel in “The Little Mermaid”). Featuring Sarah Silverman as the voice of Vanellope, “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2” opens in theaters nationwide Nov. 21, 2018...©2018 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

I dressed up like Mulan to announce my D23 Expo adventure and things come back full circle as I decided I would represent Mulan on the Wreck It Ralph 2 red carpet, too!

Since it is Vanellope’s movie, I had a bit of a hard time choosing whether to cosplay as Vanellope or to honor my favorite princess (Mulan), but either way, I’ll be cosplaying both during my RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET press trip.

Cosplaying on the Hollywood red carpet is a dream come true and I am excited about my Mulan-inspired dress and accessories, so make sure you are following along with #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent November 4-6 to see my live coverage and rate my looks!

If you want to get caught up with all things Ralph Breaks The Internet, make sure you read my Q&A with directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston and Producer Clark Spencer, too!

During the Ralph Breaks The Internet red carpet event, I’ll experience virtual reality with “Ralph Breaks VR,” a new hyper-reality experience based on Ralph Breaks The Internet that’s produced by ILMxLAB in collaboration with the Void!

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET: STORY – Storyboard artists at Walt Disney Animation Studios work closely with the director, heads of story and screenwriters to transform words on a script page into a visual representation—for example in this scene that showcases Ralph and Vanellope’s arrival to the internet. Storyboards are edited together with scratch or temporary dialogue, providing filmmakers with an early idea of how a scene might play out. Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, and featuring Jim Reardon as story director and Josie Trinidad as head of story, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018. ©2018 Disney.

I’m also going to attend a drawing workshop with legendary Walt Disney Animation Studios animator Mark Henn, as he personally teaches us to draw characters featured on Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Mark Henn is behind our most beloved iconic princesses, including Jasmine (“Aladdin”), Belle (“Beauty and the Beast”), Ariel (“The Little Mermaid”), Tiana (The Princess & The Frog), Anna (“Frozen”), and yes, you guessed it, Mulan (“Mulan”)! It was at D23 Expo that I learned that he also worked on Young Simba in The Lion King animated feature, which is my other Disney favorite!

SELFIE!  In Ralph Breaks the Internet, Vanellope von Schweetz hits the internet where she encounters and then befriends the Disney princesses. Filmmakers invited the original voice talent to return to the studio to help bring their characters to life, including Sarah Silverman (Vanellope in Ralph Breaks the Internet), Aulii Cravalho (Moana), Kristen Bell (Anna in Frozen), Idina Menzel (Elsa in Frozen), Kelly MacDonald (Merida in Brave), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in Tangled), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in The Princess and the Frog), Ming-Na Wen (Mulan), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Linda Larkin (Jasmine in Aladdin), Paige OHara (Belle in Beauty and the Beast), and Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid). ©2018 Disney.

Are you excited for Ralph Breaks The Internet? If you saw the original Wreck It Ralph, I’m sure you are. And if you haven’t, you must! When “Wreck-It Ralph” opened on Nov. 2, 2012, it turned in the highest opening weekend ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film at the time of release. It won the PGA Award, five Anny Awards, was named best animated feature by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, won the Kids’ Choice Award for favorite animated movie, and was nominated for an Oscar® and Golden Globe® for best-animated feature. And I’m almost sure the sequel is going to blow our minds!
