One of the major selling points put out by Disney for their “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel “Ralph Breaks the Internet”, was the appearance of the Disney Princesses while the main characters were exploring the Internet as laid out in the movie’s plot blurb. Movie audiences were already given a nice taste of how that scene will go about from a trailer released months ago. Now Disney has done that preview better with another teaser, this time of the beloved Princesses trading their signature gowns for modern loungewear. The internet went wild earlier last week when images of the scene were tweeted. With the new trailer out, the fans are in orbit.
SYFY Wire has it that the new trailer for “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2”, released by Disney last week on Friday, August 10, has now racked up over a million and a half views on YouTube and 33,000 likes. It is not that difficult so see why, considering it finally showed what the still images of the Disney Princess in casual dress that were uploaded earlier in the week would look like in motion. And it features one of the most hilarious lines taken from the film yet.
The trailer scene involved has the dressed-down Disney Princesses hanging out in their well-appointed room with Vannelope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), following a wacky groufie photo session. The details on each Princess’ dress (Snow White’s poison apple, Elsa’s “Just Let It Go” slogan) drew plenty of laughs already, but the kicker was when Merida from Pixar’s “Brave” gives a short summary of her film’s story in a very thick Scottish accent. The other Princesses tell Vanellope that even they have some trouble understanding her, even blithely pointing out that she is “from the other studio”.
While the “casual Princess” scene was the real crowd-pleaser for this “Wreck-It Ralph 2” trailer, one other new development spoiled by the trailer was the addition of a new character. She is Shank, a racer character in the online game “Slaughter Race”, and she is voiced by Gal “Wonder Woman” Gadot, a surprise considering she is starring in a rival studio’s film franchise. Even better, her role as Shank seems like an echo of the character Gadot portrayed on the “Fast and Furious” films with Vin Diesel. Shank seems impressed by Vanellope’s driving skill, though whether she is friendly or hostile remains to be seen.
“Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” premieres this November.
