“What would happen if we took Ralph out of the land of arcade games and dropped him in the middle of Wi-Fi land?” That may have been the question that sparked the inspiration behind the Wreck-It Ralph sequel. On Wednesday (Feb. 28), the first official trailer for the upcoming film made its way onto the internet following days of teasing.
The over two-minute-clip begins with the owner of the arcade walking in with an internet router under his arm and eventually connecting to the World Wide Web. While Ralph and Vanellope are strolling, they notice this thing called “WIFI” and decide to take a look at it. Before their eyes, they are taking a ride through the internet cable eventually dropping them in the middle of the information hub (Google, maybe?) which looks like a technological version of New York’s Grand Central.
While at the hub, the duo encounter an overwhelming amount of places to go to, personifications of click bait, an auction on eBay for a velvet painting of a sorrowful kitten that can look into your soul, and eventually end up in the middle of a kid’s game.

If the idea of taking Ralph out of his arcade game and thrusting him into the internet may seem a little much for this small-game character, co-director Rich Moore said they did this on purpose to allow the writers to tell bigger stories.
“To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” Moore explained in press release back in March of 2017.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is set to hit theaters on Nov. 21.
