The newest trailer for “Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet” takes Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) deeper into the realms of the world wide web, and all the highs and lows that accompany its vast wealth of technology.
Like the first teaser, this clip is pretty light on actual plot (the film’s official synopsis describes our heroes searching the internet for a part to fix Vanellope’s broken arcade game), though it’s still fun. Case in point: Ralph and Vanellope meet a search engine, KnowsMore (Alan Tudyk), whose predictive prompts grow more ridiculous and hilarious as Ralph grows more perplexed and annoyed.
We also finally get to see some footage from that epic Disney Princess round-up, when Vanellope stumbles upon them in the Oh My Disney section of the ‘net. (Yes, “Wreck-It Ralph 2” appears to be chock full of Disney self-promotion and product placement.) The startled royalty demand to know why she’s there, and when Vanellope explains that she’s a princess, too, they launch into a hilariously specific litmus test to prove her claim, involving magic hair, the ability to talk to animals, and whether or not she was “kidnapped or enslaved.”
“Do people assume all your problems got solved because a big, strong man showed up?” Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) finally asks.
“Yes!” Vanellope replies. “What is up with that?!”
The trailer makes it clear that there’s going to be plenty of self-referential winks like the above exchange, including another bit of dialogue that pokes fun at the film’s title (“Shouldn’t it be, ‘Ralph Wrecks the Internet’?”). Whether or not that’s your cup of tea should determine how much you enjoy this sequel, though we have a feeling filmmakers are keeping many of the movie’s more heart-warming moments under wraps until it actually hits theaters.
Fans can see for themselves when “Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens on November 21.
