Taraji P. Henson has been cast as an algorithm named Yesss in Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck -It Ralph 2, the sequel to the 2012 Disney Animation pic. The news was just unveiled during a presentation at D23, Disney’s annual fan confab in Anaheim.
The sequel will see Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) and Ralph (John C. Reilly) escaping the arcade and entering the Internet. The second installment of the video game romp that nods to the 8-bit ’80s will be released on November 21, 2018. The original grossed $471.2 million at the global box office and was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars and the Golden Globes.
Disney also showed a just-for-attendees clip from the new movie where Vanellope meets all the Disney and Pixar princesses: Moana, Elsa, Ariel, Snow White, Belle, etc. It dovetailed into a panel that featured past princess portrayers Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell (Frozen), Mandy Moore (Tangled), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Anika Noni Rose (The Princess And The Frog), Kelly MacDonald (Brave), Ming Na Wen (Mulan), Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid), Paige O’Hara (Beauty And The Beast) and Linda Larkin (Aladdin) all on the same stage.
