Last night my family had the opportunity to go to a screening of the new Wreck-it Ralph movie, Ralph Breaks the Internet. Besides the fact that someone thought it would be appropriate to bring an infant to the screening (and didn’t take the child outside when it was crying…), we had an amazing time!
We are HUGE Wreck-it Ralph fans at our house and we even dressed up like Ralph, Fix-it Felix and Venellope for Halloween a couple years ago:
Here’s the premise: Ralph Breaks the Internet ventures into the uncharted and thrilling world of the world wide web. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet to help navigate their way.
Check out the trailer:
We absolutely LOVED the new movie and it had tons and tons of laughs throughout. Ralph and Vanellope were as endearing as ever and I just love their relationship. There was even a quick cartoon Stan Lee cameo and everyone in the theater let out a collective “aww” when they saw it.
For me it was the inclusion of the Disney princesses. It has been teased for months and those parts were some of my absolute favorite bits of the movie. There was SO MUCH to unpack there that I’m going to need to see the movie a few more times to get all of the quick jokes and references. For Jack it was the first scene after the credits (there are two, so be sure to stay in the theater when the credits start rolling). He laughed so hard and this morning on the way to school he brought it up again and started giggling.
This movie is absolutely great for all ages, so if you are looking for something to see over the long weekend, add this to your list!
Ralph Breaks the Internet opens in theaters tonight, Wednesday, November 21, 2018 and is rated PG.
Disclosure: I was invited to attend the screening at no cost to me.
