New Stills from ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2,’ Including That Disney Princess Scene

Share on Pinterest

USA Today brings us new stills from Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 featuring new characters and some very special royal guests.

As teased at D23 Expo 2017, while exploring the vast worlds of the Internet, Vanellope meets the Disney Princesses for a sequence full of cameos. We get our first look of this scene in the image above, featuring Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana, Rapunzel, Anna, Elsa, and Moana. Not pictured but also part of the scene are Ariel and Merida. This marks the first time many of the Princesses will appear on the big screen in computer animation.

Wreck-It-Ralph-2-Yesss

Joining the cast is Taraji P. Henson as Yesss, proprietor of “BuzzzTube,” a popular video website and a guide to Ralph and Vanellope as they venture into a world that is largely unknown to them.

Wreck-It-Ralph-2-KnowsMore

Alan Tudyk voices KnowsMore, a search engine with all the answers. This confirms the involvement of Tudyk, who voiced King Candy in 2012’s original Wreck-It Ralph and has since voiced a character in every film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Until now, it was unknown if he would reprise King Candy for the sequel in some afterlife (or double version) way. Whether or not that still ends up being the case, we now at least know for sure Tudyk is in the film.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is directed by Rich Moore (director of the first film) and Phil Johnston (screenwriter of the first film). It releases from Disney Animation on November 21.

What do you think of these new characters and the Disney Princesses’ renderings?

  • Vanellope meeting the Disney Princesses? My first thought was ‘oh no’ but for all the good reasons. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • Yellow

    The DPs look pretty good in CG. I’m a little surprised that they didn’t use the exact same character models as in Tangled, Frozen and Moana (i.e. those characters look a tad different here), but it still looks good. Snow White and Aurora translated really well!
    Also, Yesss has an awesome character design, and I can already imagine KnowsMore being a highlight of the movie in terms of humor.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I barely noticed about the design change until you brought it up.

  • Jordan Briskin

    I am so disappointed that the hand-drawn Disney Heroines were re-rendered in CGI….

  • Personally I’m hoping there’s also a scene with all the ‘forgotten’ Disney Princesses. Giselle, Kida, Eilonwy, etc. And since the definition of princess is so loose, then throw characters like Megara and Jane in there as well. I mean, Vanellope is practically a forgotten princess herself, so it would make perfect sense!

    • Harith Sami

      What about Anastasia ? Disney is acquiring Fox anyway.

      • Manuel Orozco

        I doubt it

      • Yellow

        That’s a recent development though, considering that this movie has been in production for a few years now. It’s not going to happen here, I’m afraid.

      • Well the Disney/Fox acquisition is currently in question thanks to Comcast, but even if it had been a done deal back when Wreck-It Ralph was still in production, I still don’t think it would have happened, as I have my doubts that Disney will even accept Anastasia as a Disney Princess, when/if they get the rights to the film.
        I could be wrong, and I think it would be very cool if they did, but given the history with Don Bluth, not to mention the fact that Disney had no part in the actual creation of the film, I just really doubt that they’ll want to fully embrace her as one of their own. :/
        Fully willing to be proven wrong though, and I actually hope I am. Everyone already mistakenly thinks she is one of them, just make it official, Disney! 🙂

    • Manuel Orozco

      I have doubts about the other girls too

    • Lee DeWald

      Yes. Kida. Exactly.

      It annoys me to no end that because “Atlantis” was considered a failure, Kida has essentially been erased from the Disney Princess canon. I love “Atlantis” to pieces and have long held out hope that Disney will resurrect it as a live-action spectacle, a la “Beauty and the Beast” and “Cinderella” and so on.

    • Amber Dvorak

      Aww man, if only.

    • Jordan Briskin

      Well, for that matter, why don’t they also include Kiara in the mix? Sure, she’s not a human, but she’s still royalty.

  • Harith Sami

    No one will point out how similar the redesigns look to Disney Infinity figures?
    Especially with doll-proportions and eye size.

    • Amber Dvorak

      I thought this exact same thing!! Very good observation!

  • Manuel Orozco

    I was skeptical of the princesses joining together. But their new designs aren’t that bad! It’s great Tudyk is involved but I doubt for a King Candy cameo. As for Yesss, I am guessing based on her smile she’s the surprise villain.

    • Yellow

      I thought she might be the surprise villain too after seeing her design. I kind of hope there isn’t a surprise villain in the movie though, but there probably will be.

      • Manuel Orozco

        If that’s the case it won’t ruin this sequel much. But I am finding the surprise villain trope pretty tiring. Especially after Zootopia and Coco. I like those two equally but just saying

      • Manuel Orozco

        You do understand what I mean by tiring don’t you what I said about surprise villain

  • Marielle

    They are designed to fit into the Wreck It Ralph universe, not the Tangled-Frozen-Moana universe. I think that’s why they look a bit more childlike. We saw in the teaser trailer that the baby Moana character model from the movie Moana was used as is to represent a user of a video game, so I think that means the Tangled-Frozen-Moana designs are the “real world” people and the designs seen in this new still are the “virtual world” characters.

    • Yellow

      Good point! I didn’t think of that.

    • Manuel Orozco

      That makes perfect sense

  • Bob Smith

    I was wondering if the princesses will interact with each other, and the image seems to suggest so.

  • I really LOVE looking at the princess still, just when you think you’ve seen everything then you find something new!! Ahhhh I am intrigued as heck how this’ll all turn out!! :DD
