Disney Princess spin-off movie

I’ll admit that I rolled my eyes when I first saw the now-famous Disney Princess scene in the trailers for Ralph Breaks the Internet. You know the one: Vanellope Von Schweetz meets Belle, Jasmine, Moana, Cinderella, and several other princesses as they make self-referential jokes about the ordeals they’ve experienced. But while the trailer made it seem slightly crass, the scene plays much better in context and the princesses actually end up factoring into the plot; the movie gives them more to do than just lounge around in pajamas.

But after the princesses’ warm reception in the movie, would the studio consider making an entire animated Disney Princess spin-off movie? The Ralph Breaks the Internet directors say it’s “an idea worth exploring.” But don’t get your hopes up too much…yet.

A Place Called Slaughter Race

Every Disney princess deserves their big sweeping solo song, and in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) got one — albeit an appropriately offbeat one. The young video game racer and quirky princess got her own solo song penned by the legendary Disney maestro Alan Menken in a song that is equal parts self-deprecating and inspirational, in the vein of both Wreck-It Ralph movies. But boy does Vanellope sing her little heart out about murderous street racing in the full “A Place Called Slaughter Race” sequence, which is now available to watch online.

Meanwhile, Ralph Breaks the Internet is breaking the bank at No. 1 at the domestic box office, holding steady against The Grinch and Creed II.
