Nov 21, 2018 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, experiment with a bit of augmented reality in this week’s review of Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018). Starring John C. Reilly as the title character and Sarah Silverman as the lovable candy-car racer Vanellope von Schweetz – along with ALL of the Disney princesses in comfy cameos – the new film exposes the heroes to the ever-changing landscape of the Internet. Clever, self-referential comedy and heartfelt metacommentary collide in unique ways, representing both a return to form and an evolution of the franchise.

Ralph Breaks the Internet features an extensive voice cast that includes Gal Gadot, Taraji P. Henson, Alfred Molina, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk and Ed O’Neill. Oh, and nearly all of the original voice actors from animated films featuring Disney princesses in the past 70 years.
