Ralph Breaks the Internet is a 2018 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It serves as the sequel to 2012's Wreck-It Ralph and is the second installment of the Wreck-It Ralph film series. It is Walt Disney Animation Studios' 57th feature-length film. It is directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, written by Johnston and Pamela Ribon, and executive-produced by John Lasseter, Chris Williams, and Jennifer Lee. It features John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, and Ed O'Neill reprising their roles from the first film, with Alan Tudyk returning to voice a new character, alongside new additions to the cast including Gal Gadot, Taraji P. Henson, Bill Hader (in an uncredited role), and Alfred Molina.
The plot centers on Ralph and Vanellope going into the Internet to find a replacement part to fix Sugar Rush. Along the way, they meet Shank, the fastest racer in a game called Slaughter Race, and Vanellope feels at home there, which Ralph worries may put their friendship in jeopardy that comes alongside disastrous consequences.
Talks for a Wreck-It Ralph sequel began in October 2012 and went through three different scripts before settling on the final plot. The film was officially announced in June 2016, with much of the original cast confirming they had signed on, and new cast announced in 2018. It marks the first feature-length theatrical sequel from Walt Disney Animation Studios since Winnie the Pooh in 2011 , which was a sequel to the 1977 animated film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It is also the studio's first animated sequel to be created by the original film's writing/directing team.
Ralph Breaks the Internet had its world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on November 5, 2018, and was released in the United States on November 21, 2018. The film has grossed over $285 million worldwide and received positive reviews from critics, who called it a "worthy successor" and praised the animation, humor, characters and storyline, as well as the vocal performances of Reilly and Silverman.

Six years after saving the game Sugar Rush from Turbo's revenge, Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz are still best friends who hang out every night after work in Litwak's Family Fun Center and Arcade. Vanellope's frustration over the predictability of her game prompts Ralph to create a secret bonus track for her. She enjoys the track but overrides the player controls to race on it, causing the steering wheel to get stuck. A player accidentally pulls the wheel off the console while trying to free it and Mr. Litwak accidentally breaks it while trying to reattach it. Finding the replacement part to be prohibitively expensive, he has no choice but to unplug Sugar Rush, leaving Vanellope and its citizens homeless.
After a conversation with Fix-It Felix, Jr. in Tapper's, Ralph decides to venture with Vanellope onto the Internet via the arcade's newly installed wifi router, in order to obtain a new wheel on eBay. They find one being auctioned off and place a winning bid, but must pay for it within 24 hours. To raise the money, they turn to a pop-up advertiser named Spamley, who sends them to steal a valuable car from the online game Slaughter Race.
Ralph and Vanellope steal the car, but its owner Shank forces them to return it to her after a high-speed chase throughout Slaughter Race. Shank compliments Vanellope's driving skills, causing Ralph to worry that this might potentially put their friendship may be in jeopardy, and points the pair toward the video sharing site BuzzzTube. After meeting with its chief algorithm Yesss, Ralph decides to raise money by creating a series of videos that play off popular trends, intending to buy the wheel and return Vanellope to Sugar Rush.
Ralph's videos become a viral sensation, and Yesss sends her staff into the Internet to spam users with pop-up ads. Vanellope volunteers for this job and is assigned to Oh My Disney, where she meets the Disney Princesses and gains from them the inspiration to return to Slaughter Race. Meanwhile, Ralph earns enough money to cover the eBay bid, but is crushed upon reading viewers' disparaging comments about his videos. He inadvertently overhears a conversation between Vanellope and Shank, in which Vanellope expresses her desire to leave the arcade and live permanently in Slaughter Race.
Desperate to keep Vanellope as a friend, Ralph turns again to Spamley in search of a way to make Slaughter Race so boring that Vanellope will not want to stay. Spamley leads him to Double Dan, a virus designer hiding in the dark web. Double Dan gives Ralph a virus that can replicate and broadcast any insecurity it finds. When Ralph unleashes it in Slaughter Race, it homes in on Vanellope's glitch and spreads it, causing the game to crash and nearly killing Ralph and Vanellope in a server reboot.
As Vanellope begins to blame herself, Ralph admits his misdeed to her. Outraged by what he's done, she throws away the cookie medal she had made for him six years ago and abandons him. The virus escapes from Slaughter Race, scans Ralph's insecurities, and spreads them throughout the Internet to create thousands of clones of him. As the clones begin destroying the Internet and form a giant Ralph in search of Vanellope, she, Ralph, and Yesss try to lead them into an anti-virus software trap. The tactic fails and Vanellope is captured; Ralph tries unsuccessfully to fight them off, then calls them out on their selfish possessiveness and admits that Vanellope's desire to enter Slaughter Race does not mean that their friendship must end. With his insecurities resolved, the giant Ralph disintegrates and drops him, but the Disney Princesses save him from the fall, and Vanellope and Ralph reconcile.
The Internet is restored and Vanellope decides to stay in Slaughter Race. Coming to terms with the changes in his life, Ralph returns to the arcade and begins participating in activities with other game characters, while staying in touch with Vanellope through video chats.

Popular culture cameos and references
Similar to the first film, which included a number of cameos and references to video games, Ralph Breaks the Internet has additional features to Internet culture and to various Disney properties, including their own films, Pixar films, the Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and The Muppets franchises. Mickey Mouse, Grumpy, Dumbo, Humphrey the Bear, Eeyore, Tinker Bell, Nick Wilde, Heihei, Buzz Lightyear, Baymax, C-3PO, R2-D2, Yoda, Stormtroopers, Iron Man, Judy Hopps, and Rocket Raccoon also appear in the film, along with the video game characters Q*bert, Pac-Man, Clyde, Inky, Taizo Hori, Ken Masters, Chun-Li, Ryu, Zangief, M. Bison, Peter Pepper, Frogger, Tapper, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Doctor Eggman from the original film. The band Imagine Dragons (whose song "Zero" is featured in a trailer for the film, as well as its soundtrack) make a cameo appearance in the film, with the members voicing themselves.
The filmmakers revealed that the film originally featured a joke about Kylo Ren being a "spoiled child", which was later cut from the film by request from Lucasfilm. Like the first film, it does not have a Mario cameo despite the promise they would include him.
Boss Baby can also be seen, although him being from a rival company.
In October 2012, director Rich Moore said that he and Disney had ideas about a sequel that would bring the characters up to date and explore different planes of the gaming universe like online gaming and console gaming, Moore noting it would be "great to work in a story about those types of games that are so prevalent, contemporary and part of today's culture". The idea of a sequel held interest for numerous people involved with the first film, including the artists, technicians, and voice actors, and Moore stated that many of the crew and voice cast were open to the sequel, believing that they have "barely scratched the surface" of the video game world they envisioned. He also stated that he planned to include Mario and Tron in the sequel. (In the end, only the latter appeared briefly, serving as a minor foreshadowing plot device.) In 2014, the first film's composer Henry Jackman said that a story for the sequel was being written. In July 2015, John C. Reilly said he had signed on to reprise his role of Ralph in a projected sequel. In September 2015, Jack McBrayer was asked by Screen Rant about the state of the projected sequel, but he revealed that he did not know much of anything and joked that it would be awkward if Felix was not in the film.
On March 24, 2016, Moore stated that a sequel was still being planned. Moore specifically stated that a sequel would include an appearance from Mario, citing a "good relationship with Nintendo". In an official announcement on June 30, 2016, Rich Moore appeared, along with Phil Johnston and John C. Reilly, to announce the film's release date, which was originally March 9, 2018; John C. Reilly said of the plot, "Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the Internet". In an interview with Oh My Disney the same day, Moore said of what could be expected in the film, that it would have "everything [people] loved about the first one and a whole lot more".
In March 2017, the sequel's title was officially announced as Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, with Moore returning as director joined by the first film's co-writer, Phil Johnston, in his directing debut in an animated film and Clark Spencer also returning as producer.
In July 2018, Disney removed Wreck-it Ralph 2 from the film's title.
Two working versions of the script had been scrapped before settling on the one used for the film, according to head writer Josie Trinidad. In one version, Vanellope had become self-absorbed by the Internet, gaining popularity and becoming a celebrity among the users. Ralph had been thrown in jail where he met the search engine Knowsmore, and they had partnered together to escape prison and help bring Vanellope back to her normal self. A second version had Ralph becoming an Internet-famous celebrity, and would have been challenged by an anti-virus program named Bev that served as a super cop and would have been the story's villain. Trinidad said neither of these versions captured what they felt was the centerpiece of the sequel, being how Ralph and Vanellope reacted to the new world of the Internet and realizing they have separate paths going forward. In a July 2016 interview with Collider, Rich Moore stated that the movie would take place six years after Wreck-It Ralph, in the present day. At D23 2017, it was announced that the film would revolve around the breakdown of Sugar Rush, and Ralph and Vanellope would venture into the internet to find a replacement part.
Producer Clark Spencer said that "the film is about change. Two best friends are about to realize that the world won’t always be the same. The internet is the perfect setting, really, because it’s all about change—things change by the second". Director of story Jim Reardon said that it was intimidating to set the film on the Internet, stating that "[They] looked at how [they] could make the internet relatable on a human level—like how Game Central Station aka the power strip mirrored a train station in the first movie. In 'Ralph Breaks the Internet,' any person who uses the internet has a little avatar version of themselves that does their business for them". Reardon, however, said that Disney "didn’t want to make the movie about the internet", wanting to instead focus on Ralph and Vanellope's friendship, wanting to instead treat the Internet as "the place where the movie takes place". Josie Trinidad claimed that the filmmakers "didn’t want to just give the audience more of that friendship — [people had] to see that relationship grow."
The design of the scenes within the Internet was based on tours made of One Wilshire in Los Angeles, as it is one of the world's largest telecommunications centers, serving most traffic around the Pacific Ocean. The filmmakers did not approach any of the companies (outside of Disney) that are represented in the Internet, and strived to include net branding from all across the world. They also explored various Internet memes, making sure to avoid those that lacked long-term presence on the Internet. While the film addresses many positive elements of the Internet, the filmmakers did not want to shy away from covering some of the more unpleasant aspects about it, in part fueled by the success of tackling racism indirectly within Zootopia. Such elements include Ralph reading through comment sections on videos to find users leaving disparaging messages about him, and having the pair travel to the dark web with its activities of questionable legal and ethical status. They wanted to follow the same approach as they had with Judy Hopps in Zootopia, where she experienced, learned, and overcame the racism aspects, and have Ralph similarly learn and become a better person without having to actually solve the issue of hostility on the Internet.
The scene where Vanellope is introduced to the Disney Princesses came from screenwriter Pamela Ribon. In 2014, Ribon was still working on Moana when Disney began internally pitching ideas for the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, Ribon recognized that like the title character of Moana, Vanellope fits the definition of a Disney Princess. When work formally began on the sequel after the completion of Zootopia, Ribon pitched the idea of Disney poking fun at itself by having Vanellope meet the other Disney Princesses in the green room of OhMyDisney.com, the Disney fan-driven website. Further inspiration came from a Buzzfeed online quiz that asked which Disney Princess the user was; Moore thought it would be interesting if Ralph had encountered that quiz and ended up in an argument with Vanellope over the result. Ribon's initial script for the scene, playing off the various tropes of the Princesses such as several being kidnapped or enslaved, remained mostly intact through production. Animators had to work out various techniques to take the different styles of animation into a single approach, and figure out the proportions of the characters to themselves using official figurines. Directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston said that a film focusing on the Disney Princesses could be made depending on the audience's response and "if there's a good story to be told".
Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, and Sarah Silverman were reported as being set to reprise their roles. Rich Moore hinted in a July 2016 tweet that Alan Tudyk would return, though he didn't provide information as to whether the actor might reprise his role as Turbo or take on an entirely new character. In December 2016, Alan Tudyk confirmed his return in the sequel as a different character, named KnowsMore. In August 2018, Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot joined the film. The team was able to secure all the Disney Princesses' original voice actresses, save for Adriana Caselotti for Snow White, Ilene Woods for Cinderella, and Mary Costa for Aurora, as Caselotti and Woods passed away in 1997 and 2010 respectively while Costa retired from acting in 2000; Jennifer Hale and Kate Higgins, the current voice actresses for Cinderella and Aurora were hired for the film while Pamela Ribon, the film's co-screenwriter, performed Snow White's voice for temporary tracks, but the team considered it a good substitute, allowing Ribon to voice her in the final film.
The picture contains over 150 unique sets and 5,726 assets. It also included the highest number of characters in any Disney Animation film, with 434 individual characters with 6,752 variants.
Following the June 2018 trailer for the film, which included the first shots of the Disney Princesses, Tiana, the African-American lead character from the 2009 film The Princess and the Frog, appeared to have a lighter skin tone, a narrower nose, and European features in Ralph Breaks the Internet than in the 2009 film. This led to some backlashes on social media as these drew her appearance away from that expected of African-Americans. As a result, Tiana's voice actress Anika Noni Rose and the advocacy group Color of Change contacted Disney to redesign Tiana for Ralph Breaks the Internet to make her look closer to her 2009 appearance, which was reintroduced in the second trailer. The same treatment was given to Pocahontas, the titular character of the 1995 film Pocahontas, who had been pointed out by many viewers to have also been given a much lighter skin tone.
One of the initial scenes created for the movie involved Ralph and Vanellope invading a childrens' game, involving feeding pancakes to a bunny to the point it appears to explode, subsequently frightening the child that was playing the game. This scene was featured in the film's original teaser, released in March 2018, and was heavily discussed in buzz about the film. Over time as they developed the rest of the film, they found the scene no longer fit in the film they were presenting. Knowing that audiences would be asking for this scene, it was moved to the mid-credits scene, along with additional fourth wall commentary about scenes shown in trailers that go missing in the final film. The final post-credits scene involves what starts as a teaser for the upcoming Frozen 2 film (due in 2019) but ends up with Ralph "rickrolling" the audience by starting to sing Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up". While producers Spencer and Moore had an idea of Ralph doing a "Wreck Roll" early on in the film's development, they never incorporated it into the story. Late in production, they mentioned this to studio executives who told them they should add it in. As it was one of the last scenes added, the producers had gotten Reilly, who was on vacation with his family at the time, to come in to a New York studio to record for the day so that the animators could work from that.

On September 19, 2018, Imagine Dragons released the lead single from the soundtrack titled "Zero", which plays during the end credits of the movie. On October 23, 2018, the music video of "Zero" was posted on Imagine Dragons' YouTube channel. The film features an original song called "A Place Called Slaughter Race", performed by Sarah Silverman and Gal Gadot, written by Tom MacDougall and the film's co-director Phil Johntson, and the music was composed by Alan Menken, while the song's pop version, "In This Place", was performed by Julia Michaels. The film also features songs from various Disney Princess movies, as well as Demi Lovato's cover of "Let it Go" played in the beginning of the Oh My Disney scene. Ralph also rickrolls the tune "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley in a post-credits scene. The soundtrack is composed by Henry Jackman, who also composed the score from the previous film. It was released digitally on November 16, 2018, and will be released on CD on November 30, 2018.
On June 30, 2016, Walt Disney Animation Studios initially announced that the sequel, titled Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, would be released on March 9, 2018. However, in late April 2017, it was announced that its release date was moved from the originally announced March to November 2018. In July 2018, Disney shortened the film's title to Ralph Breaks the Internet. The film was released in 3D, 2D, Dolby Cinema and IMAX 3D.
The first official clip named "KnowsMore" was released on World Internet Day October 29, 2018. Another entitled "Hearts" was introduced on November 5, the same date they began selling tickets before the film's release. On that same day, the film made its world premiere at Los Angeles’ El Capitan Theatre along with the song "Zero" played by Imagine Dragons at the event. A clip entitled "There is No Track", featuring new character Shank, was released on November 8.
A new poster for the film was released on February 26, 2018. Two days later, a teaser trailer for the film was released on February 28, 2018, and it quickly became viral, getting more than 4.5 million views in 24 hours. A second trailer was released on June 4, 2018 set to the Daft Punk song "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". A sneak peek of the film was released on August 10, 2018 that included the will.i.am song "Geekin'". Its final trailer, which included the song "Never Gonna Give You Up", was released on September 20, 2018.
Carvana and Disney collaborated to promote the film's release throughout a multi-channel campaign.
As of February 1, 2019, Ralph Breaks the Internet has grossed $196.3 million in the United States and Canada, and $277.6 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $473.9 million, against a production budget of $175 million.
In the United States and Canada, Ralph Breaks the Internet was released alongside Creed II and Robin Hood, as well as the wide expansion of Green Book, and was originally projected to gross $67–77 million from 4,017 theaters in its five-day opening weekend. The film made $18.5 million on its first day (including a pre-Thanksgiving record $3.8 million from Tuesday night previews) and another $10.3 million on its second, increasing five-day projections to $85–95 million. It went on to debut to $56.2 million in its opening weekend (a five-day total of $84.8 million), finishing first at the box office and marking the second-best Thanksgiving opening behind Disney's Frozen ($93.5 million).
In its second weekend the film made $25.8 million, dropping 54% but remaining in first. For the third weekend, it topped the box office once again with $16.3 million, dropping 36%. In its second and third weekends the film finished ahead of The Grinch, marking the first time animated films were the top two spots at the box office in back-to-back weekends. On the fourth-week box office, The Grinch ($893,640) finished ahead of Ralph Breaks the Internet until Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse topped the box office in their respective weeks.
On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 89% based on 201 reviews, with an average rating of 7.3/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Ralph Breaks the Internet levels up on its predecessor with a funny, heartwarming sequel that expands its colorful universe while focusing on core characters and relationships." On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, calculated a weighted average score of 71 out of 100, based on 41 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale, down from the "A" earned by the first film, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
Bilge Ebiri, of The New York Times, gave the film a positive review, saying that "somewhere amid the film’s ornate imagery and deliriously irreverent humor, we might begin to realize that we’re watching a terrifying, incisive satire about the ways that a life lived online makes monsters of us all". Brian Lowry, of CNN, said that "The colorful action should delight tykes, but the smart, media-savvy asides make it especially appealing to grownups". Kerry Lengel, of The Arizona Republic, gave the film 3.5 stars out of 5, saying that "what makes the movie compelling, despite the subdued dramatic payoff, is that it is a heightened reflection of our experience - our love affair, really - with our gadgets, our apps and, yes, our brands". Peter Hartalub, of The San Francisco Chronicle, also gave the film 3 stars out of 4, stating that the film is "almost always inspired in the moment" and said that "the new characters are all pretty great", though he said that the film's first third "struggles to find its focus", and felt that Felix and Calhoun's subplot "would have worked better as a pre-movie animated short". Chris Bumbray, of JoBlo's Movie Emporium, said that the film "is just as solid" as the first film, and said it was better than the science-fiction film Ready Player One. Alex Hudson of Exclaim praised the film but criticized its "brand synergy," calling it "a peculiar piece of meta-fiction and a shameless advertisement for Disney's many subsidiary film studios." 
Oliver Jones, of Observer, gave the film 2.5 score, saying that "Ralph Breaks the Internet is a candy coated, hard shined brick of postmodernism — a Vitamix smoothie of gags, nostalgia, product placement and Fruity Pebbles". Alonso Duralde, of TheWrap, said that "Within a few years, the specifics of the viral-video gags in Ralph Breaks the Internet will be as dated as a Tay Zonday joke". Peter Bradshaw, of The Guardian, said that the "sequel to the 2012 film is somewhere between Ready Player One and The Emoji Movie, summoning up a zero-gravity spectacle of dazzling colours and vertiginous perspectives, a featureless and inert mashup of memes, brands, avatars and jokes".
