In 2018, Disney gave us a sequel that apparently people wanted to see. I was never a fan of the first Wreck-It Ralph film, so I wasn’t enthusiastic about a sequel. Nevertheless, I checked out this sequel directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston in theaters! Did I feel that Ralph Breaks the Internet was a better film than its predecessor? Read to to find out!
An official trailer for Disney’s upcoming Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 has debuted!
So what do I like about this trailer? Well, I’m loving how the animation is as good as its predecessor, the voicework seems to be the same, and that the Internet lends itself to numerous possibilities for a plot! Also, I LOVE Alan Tudyk’s KnowsMore character and how the filmmakers raised our concerns as to why the film isn’t titled Ralph Wrecks the Internet!
In terms of cons, I wish that the trailer gave us more of the plot. And although I do like the Princesses scene (like, mind you, not love), I am upset that “Belle” seems to suggest that she was kidnapped or enslaved. I know that they did this as a joke, but I feel Belle would be the first to tell you that was neither kidnapped nor enslaved and would be upset if you thought otherwise.
All in all, I’m hoping to like this film more than its predecessor, which I’m not really a fan of. Gotta wait till November 21, 2018 to find out!
Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!
Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!
In 2011 and 2013, Sony Animation gave us two live-action films based on the Smurfs. Like many films of the same style, all the actors were live-action, but the main characters were animated. And like many of these kinds of films, they weren’t critical successes at all, but made money at the box office!
So when it came time to make a third film based on the Smurfs, they decided to make it a fully animated reboot pretty much ignoring that The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2 ever happened.
The result of that decision is Smurfs: The Lost Village. Read on to know what I thought of it! (Beware, there may be spoilers ahead!)
As the year comes to a close, it comes time again to prepare ourselves for the animated films being released next year! So read on below to find a list of the theatrical animated films set to be released in 2017! Like usual, I’m only listing the ones that have confirmed US release dates at the moment, hence this list is mostly composed of films from the major animation studios. Enjoy!
Today, the teaser trailer for the upcoming Sony Animation film, Smurfs: The Lost Village, has debuted. Due for release in April 2017, this fully animated film is set to be a reboot of the recent live-action/animated hybrid Smurfs films.
What do you think of this trailer and are you looking forward to seeing the film? Do you think it’s good that they’re rebooting this franchise? I personally wished that we saw more stuff in the trailer, but this is a teaser after all. But, I am glad that they’re rebooting this franchise and making it fully animated. Hopefully, it’ll turn out well!
The day is finally here! We’ve come to the last film in the Disney Canon, hence the last entry of my Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters Project.
Sigh…well, can’t cry now; we have to get through this. We are in the year 2012 and in the film, “Wreck-It Ralph”.
The film, about a video game bad guy who wants to be treated better by his good guy game companions, became a HUGE success at the box office and with critics and was even nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. I won’t discuss the plot of the film, since pretty much everybody’s seen it, so let’s go straight to our forgotten/minor character.
