Disney princesses crash the Wreck-It Ralph sequel was a highlight of the D23 Expo Animation panel with previews of upcoming Disney Animation and Pixar films.
SPOILERS for the plots of upcoming Disney films! Read no further if you don’t want to know!
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
Disney’s John Lasseter introduced the hilarious short video clip from Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. In this sequel, Ralph and Vanellope head to the Internet to try to find a missing piece to repair Vanellope’s video game. They transpot to the Internet, where they are immediately accosted by “banner ad” and “pop up ad” salespeople trying to sell them stuff. Ralph and Vanellope then discover OhMyDisney.com, where all the Disney Marvel Star Wars characters hang out. It’s a genius way to have characters from all of Disney’s properties interact on screen for the first time ever.
Vanellope sees the elite Disney Princesses get rushed behind closed doors guarded by Stormtroopers. So of course, she wants to get back there and “mess with them.” She makes her way to the Disney Princess lounge, where she meets Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahantes, Rapunzel and Elsa. Their introductions are hilarious. The princesses notice Vanellope’s casual wear, and eagerly want to try to dress down. Cinderella calls her bird friends to help tailor some clothes, and presto, all the princesses appear in casual shirts, shorts and sweatpants.
C3PO even makes an appearance.
It’s a hilarious scene, and sure to increase Disney Princess fans attendees to attend a somewhat video-game / male skewing franchise.
Disney Animation previewed other films as well. Unfortnately, not much new information was revealed about these other films.
Finally, some details of the Incredibles plot were released. The film takes place right after the first Incredibles, likely continuing the battle with the Borer. Later, Mrs. Incredible embarks on a mission, leaving Mr. Incredible at home to take care of Jack Jack.
First footage released of Incredibles 2 shows a scene where Mr. Incredible has fallen asleep watching TV while watching Jack Jack. Baby Jack Jack hears a raccoon in the backyard, and goes to investigate. Of course, Jack Jack vs. raccoon superbaby battle begins. Jack Jack is the most super super, exhibiting the following powers: Phasing (Kitty Pryde style) through a sliding glass door, green laser-eyes, multiple body (like Multiple Man), and flame-on, of course the one Fantastic Four power the Incredibles were missing.
No actual details of Frozen 2 plot or new characters. Just some jokes about potential Frozen 2 titles that didn’t make the cut.
Kristen Bell (Anna) and Josh Gad (Olaf) introduced a clip from Olaf’s Frozen Adventure short that will appear this fall. In the short, Anna and Elsa realize they have no family holiday traditions. So Olaf interviews the villagers of Arendale to try to find some holiday traditions for the sisters to adopt. Josh performed his song as Olaf on stage.
Toy Story 4
No details revealed.
