Ralph Breaks the Internet: 3D Comedy Film Reveals the Secrets behind the Web (VIDEO)

MADRID – The co-directors and the executive producer of the latest Walt Disney Animation Studios 3D computer-animated, comedy film visited Madrid on Monday to promote Disney’s 57th feature-length film.



The film “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” co-directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, is the second installment of the “Wreck-It Ralph” series and the sequel to the 2012 film “Wreck-It Ralph.” Both directors worked in the Oscar-winning “Zootropolis” (2016).

Executive producer, Clark Spencer spoke with EFE in Madrid and said: “What I like most of animated films is that you can start with something completely routinary and then show a completely different world behind it.”

Spencer also explains the film’s references to internet giants such as Amazon, Snapchat or Twitter, simply “represent internet” but the real plot resorts to “original places” like Buzztube a video social network or, Slaughter Race, a violent online racing video-game.

In this installment, six years after the events of the first film, Ralph, a video game bad-boy, must find a replacement steering wheel after the one on his Sugar Rush arcade game console breaks, forcing to unplug the machine.

Wreck-It Ralph and film heroine Vanellope von Schweetz evacuate all the Sugar Rush virtual residents to other games before it is shut down.

Ralph and Vanellope use the arcade’s new internet connection to visit Twitter, Amazon or Disney’s universe as they seek a replacement wheel.

Along the way, they encounter new customs, worlds, and characters, such as trendy algorithms or the Disney Princess lineup that help Vanellope in their search.

This time, the Disney factory joins in the fun and sends itself up by piling up the Disney cliches and stereotypes.

“Internet is only the background to the film, this film is not about internet,” Moore explained.

“It is a very simple story of two friends who think they are identical until they discover the differences between them,” the director added.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” will premiere in Spain on Dec. 5.
