  • Ugh!

  • Oh!

  • [PANTING]

  • Sweet mother of monkey milk!

  • Whoa!

  • Kid, I don't think we're in Litwak's anymore.

  • We most certainly are not, friendo.

  • We are in the internet!

  • Come on, Ralph!

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • What's up, everyone?

  • This is "Disney+ Deets," where we break down everything

  • you need to know about your favorite Disney+

  • movies and series.

  • I'm Kenneth.

  • And I'm Marcellus.

  • And not toot our own horns, but we're pretty much the biggest

  • Disney+ fans out there.

  • No! Let's do it!

  • Toot, toot!

  • Beep, beep!

  • That's right!

  • Let's get into it.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): You ready to go

  • viral on BuzzzTube, Marcellus?

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): The only way to answer that question

  • is "yes" with three S's.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Today, we're breaking down

  • one of the most high-tech, exciting films out there,

  • "Ralph Breaks the Internet."

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Grab your best friend,

  • and let's get this party started.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): "Ralph Breaks the Internet"

  • is the follow-up to 2012's "Wreck-It Ralph."

  • This was Walt Disney Animation Studios'

  • first feature-length theatrical sequel

  • created by the original movie's writing and directing team.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Yes, the dream team is back again.

  • Head of Story Josie Trinidad noted it was important

  • that the second movie show the friendship between Ralph

  • and Vanellope grow in new ways.

  • Director Rich Moore said Ralph and Vanellope

  • are like a couple of small-town kids

  • who venture into the big city.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Exactly.

  • Vanellope loves it and wants to stay,

  • but Ralph wants to go home ASAP.

  • He can't believe his best friend isn't on the same page as him.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Hmm, sounds very familiar.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Nuh-huh, don't

  • know what you're talking about.

  • This is a story about the ups and downs

  • that come with relationships and how even the strongest

  • friendships can be tested.

  • We can all relate to having a different point of view

  • from a friend-- like how you think we have to ride

  • with the AC on all the time.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): And how you insist on having

  • the windows rolled down.

  • It's hot air, Ken!

  • It's hot air!

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): But you make a fair point.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): John C. Reilly

  • returns to voice Ralph, the iconic character he brought

  • to life in the first movie.

  • Most actors in animation record their lines solo.

  • But producer Clark Spencer said Reilly likes to be

  • able to riff with his co-stars.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Which is why Reilly did not one, not

  • two, but all of his recordings with the hilarious Sarah

  • Silverman, who voices Vanellope.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): These two characters

  • have incredible chemistry.

  • And when recording some of the movie's most emotional scenes,

  • writer and director Phil Johnston

  • said both stars were in tears.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Aww!

  • Just like when you found out you can't

  • really play "Slaughter Race."

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): You said you wouldn't bring that up.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): [LAUGHS] We can't talk about "Slaughter

  • Race" without mentioning one of my favorite characters,

  • the queen herself, Shank, voiced by Gal Gadot.

  • Whoof!

  • Let's go drive.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Johnston said

  • they wanted a big sister figure for Vanellope,

  • someone she could look up to.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Well, Gadot definitely fits the bill.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Let's talk about the car.

  • This is the whole reason that they go into the game.

  • They're trying to get the car so that they can get money

  • to fix Vanellope's game because the steering wheel broke

  • on her game in the real world.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): And can I tell you?

  • You drive just like Vanellope.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): OK, If we're

  • talking about our favorite characters,

  • we have to talk about Yesss, voiced by the talented Taraji

  • P. Henson.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): All hail Miss Taraji P. Henson.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): And she did it beautifully.

  • She brought a self-assured dynamic to the character,

  • and producer Clark Spencer thought

  • Henson was the perfect choice.

  • I need you out there popping up and getting

  • clicks all over the internet.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): We talked about the stars, now let's

  • talk about the guest stars.

  • What is the one scene everybody knows

  • from this movie, Marcellus?

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): The Princess avatar meet-up.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): That's right!

  • How could anybody forget the very first movie

  • to bring all Disney's Princesses together with almost

  • all the original voice actors?

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): But the best part about it

  • is you're getting to see everything about them,

  • and they are just like you'd think they would be.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Exactly! MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): [LAUGHS]

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Let's see if I can name them all.

  • Hold on, let me take a deep breath.

  • Irene Bedard as Pocahontas, Kristen Bell as Anna,

  • Jodi Benson as Ariel, Auli'i Cravalho as Moana,

  • Linda Larkin as Jasmine, Kelly Macdonald as Merida,

  • Idina Menzel as Elsa, Mandy Moore as Rapunzel,

  • Paige O'Hara as Belle, Anika Noni Rose as Tiana,

  • and Ming-Na Wen as Mulan!

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Whoa, don't pass out.

  • You OK, kid?

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): (BREATHLESS) I'm good.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): To help put the Princesses

  • on the screen, the team turned to animation superstar

  • Mark Henn for his expertise.

  • Oh, can we get to go to Oh, My Disney?

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Hey!

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): Look at how vast and dense the internet

  • is.

  • It's such a creative choice to visualize it as a city.

  • Now let's race over to the world of the internet.

  • Disney animation artists looked at cities like Manhattan,

  • Shanghai, and Dubai to inspire the internet's

  • towering skyscrapers, with each building

  • representing a website.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Probably the single hardest

  • part of the movie to animate-- this racing scene.

  • The layout team placed 100 cameras inside the virtual set

  • and shot the chase from every angle.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): It was amazing.

  • But you know, they didn't want it to look too good.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Right.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): According to animation supervisor Robert

  • Huth, if "Slaughter Race" looked too realistic,

  • it wouldn't look like a game at all.

  • So the team went back to classic racing games of the early 2000s

  • for inspiration.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): I was on the edge of my seat

  • watching this race.

  • Not only did the animation team build skyscrapers,

  • car chases, and an entire original video game, the giant

  • Ralph that literally breaks the internet was

  • made of 300,000 little Ralphs!

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): That is so cool.

  • This is one of my favorite parts because I love that he gets

  • to see kind of like a reflection of how

  • he's been acting in a way.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Oh, we going deep.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): And he has to fight against it.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): Yes, sir.

  • MARCELLUS (VOICEOVER): He has to not

  • be that because he wants to not have

  • that be a reflection of him.

  • KENNETH (VOICEOVER): [CHUCKLES] Yes.
