The Wreck-It Ralph sequel doesn’t hit theaters until November 21st, but very early reviews are in. Ralph Breaks the Internet reunites us with Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) as they discover a WiFi router in their arcade. They end up in the Internet where they’re introduced to pop-up ads, clickbait, all of the Disney princesses, a hardcore racing game, Twitter and viral videos.
Disney’s newest animated film looks like it’s going to comment on some of the problems with Internet culture and poke fun at its own movies and properties. A scene people are particularly looking forward to shows all of the Disney princesses meeting Vanellope for the first time. “Do people assume that all your problems got solved because a big, strong man showed up?” Rapunzel asks Vanellope. When Vanellope answers yes, they all exclaim that she is, in fact, a princess.
Some critics, like Peter Sciretta of SlashFilm got to see the movie early. He gave his verdict on Twitter and told fans that they needed to stick around for the post-credit scene. In what looks to be an easter-egg heavy film, we’re sure that this extra scene is going to be worth the wait.
Good news: Disney didn’t screw up Ralph Breaks The Internet, but it’s not as great as the first. A lot of laugh out loud moments but the character driven emotional center, deeper dissection of internet’s pitfalls & toxic relationships elevates it. Stick through the credits.

Today, Ralph Breaks the Internet also released the above clip introducing Taraji P. Henson’s character Yesss. Yes, that is her character’s name. In this clip, Yesss isn’t interested in Ralph at all until her assistant tells her that he was in a viral video. She’ll no doubt serve as a way to criticize how silly and fickle trending content can be sometimes.
