Ralph Breaks the Internet Special Features
Ralph Breaks the Internet is the follow-up to the sensational Wreck-It-Ralph. I have to admit that I didn’t like the sequel as much as the original, but it was still a good family film that broke a lot of ground technically and artistically. There were also more Easter Eggs than you can possible imagine. When my review copy arrived, I entered the code into my Movies Anywhere app.
After checking out all of the special features included in the digital download on Movies Anywhere app, I garnered a deeper appreciation for the film. Let’s delve into the bonus features of Ralph Breaks the Internet on blu-ray and digital download.
Blu-ray & Digital:
How We Broke the Internet – Go behind the scenes at Walt Disney Animation Studios to get an in-depth look at how the filmmakers brought a world to life that billions of people visit every day but never actually see – the internet. Take a front-row seat as the team reveals the inspirations for the story and what it took to bring it to the screen. Discover all that went into developing the characters of the film including netizens like KnowsMore as well as characters like Double Dan. See the lengths the team took to create the car chase scenes in Slaughter Race and much, much more.
This was a 30 minute feature that breaks down how the parts of the film came together. There’s a lot of insight into the development of the world and how they translated the internet into the universe of Wreck-It-Ralph.
Surfing for Easter Eggs – Surf the web for the near-countless Easter Eggs, inside jokes and references hidden throughout the movie.
This short was a lot of fun and shared hidden details that I hadn’t seen before, especially references to Big Hero 6.
The Music of Ralph Breaks the Internet – Take a look at the music of Ralph Breaks the Internet with appearances by Imagine Dragons, Julia Michaels, Alan Menken, Sarah Silverman and more.
Deleted Scenes – Five deleted scenes with intros from directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston. Scenes include Into the Internet, Opposites, Domestic Hell, Bubble of One & Recruiting “Grandma.”
The deleted scenes were enjoyable, but it’s always weird to think about all of the changes that an animated film has gone through. I enjoy watching the scenes and always want more to be included.
BuzzzTube Cats – Many videos were created by the animators to fill the screens of the Internet world…and lots of them are of cats! Check out the BuzzzTube to watch this hilarious cat compilation.
I was completely surprised at how much I enjoyed Disney making viral cat videos. I would watch these all day long!
Music Videos – “Zero” by Imagine Dragons and “In This Place” by Julia Michaels.
I have no idea who Julia Michaels is.
Baby Drivers – Slaughter Racing School – Take a spin behind the wheel with the artists behind Ralph Breaks the Internet as they go to race car driving school.
I left the theater feeling disappointed in the sequel; it lacked the charm and warmth of the first film. Was this because of the loss of John Lasseter? I won’t delve into the political ramifications, but it’s obvious that this post-Lasseter film is missing quite a bit.
The number of pop-culture references dismayed me. They are going to date the film in the next 20 years or so. Also, the number of commercial websites featured in the film dismayed me. The Slaughter Race was extremely dark and inappropriate for a film marketed towards children and families.
