Wreck-It Ralph 2

Just earlier this year, the official title for the anticipated Wreck-It Ralph sequel was announced at CinemaCon, and it basically tells us what the movie is about. Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 will follow the titular not-so-bad video game bad guy (voiced by John C. Reilly) as he escapes the arcade and finds himself on the web.

Now the D23 Expo has provided us with a bunch of new details about the Walt Disney Animation sequel, and you won’t believe just how much this sequel is going to expand the world of Wreck-It Ralph. When the video game bad guy ends up stuck in the internet with his pint-sized, candy-haired friend Vanellope von Schweetz, they discover a place where fandoms converge, including Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney princesses.

wreck-it ralph 2

The year before Frozen took the world by storm, Walt Disney Animation released Wreck-It Ralph, one of the best video game movies that isn’t technically an adaptation of a real game. Director Rich Moore announced that he’d be co-directing a sequel with writer Phil Johnston about a year ago that’s titled Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, and the first footage of the sequel premiered at this year’s D23 Expo. Check out the new Wreck-It Ralph 2 footage below. Read More »

d23 marvel panel

The big D23 Expo from Disney came and went over the weekend, leaving onlookers dizzy with details about more than a dozen upcoming projects from various outfits that are part of the Disney corporate structure. While D23 hosted thousands of visitors, most of our readers were unable to attend. But there’s good news: most of the big panels from D23 are online in video form.

As is the case with similar recordings of Comic Con panels, there is no film footage included here. But if you want to see highlights from the D23 Marvel panel, including talk about Doctor Strange and Captain America: Civil War, you can watch below. And while the Civil War film footage isn’t here, you can see (most of) Benedict Cumberbatch‘s video greeting and enjoy the on-stage charisma of Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie. Read More »
