On November 21, 2018, the new movie “Ralph Breaks The Internet” was released. This new and thrill-packed animated movie, directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, is the sequel to the first movie of this series, “Wreck-It Ralph”, which was released just over six years ago in November of 2012. In the movie, we follow protagonists Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz as they travel through the internet in an attempt to find a missing part to restore Vanellope’s broken video game, “Sugar Rush”. However, after experiencing the game “Slaughter Race”, a racing game that is exactly what she wants, Vanellope is conflicted about whether to return to her old arcade or to stay in the internet. Ralph, heartbroken that Vanellope would abandon him, releases a virus in “Slaughter Race” in a desperate attempt to change her mind. The theme of this movie is that friends don’t always have to agree with each other. After Ralph realizes that he had been too clingy, he agrees that she can do what she wants and lets her stay in “Slaughter Race”. Overall, I thought that this sequel to “Wreck it Ralph” was a very humorous movie that tugs at the heartstrings. I thought it was clever that they used Ralph’s and Vanellope’s emotional insecurities as actual fallacies in the code of the internet. I also thought it was clever to include small references to things popular in today’s culture, like the subtle cameo of the ever-popular game Fortnite.
