Disney princesses, assemble!
Mouse House fans attending the animation presentations at the D23 Expo in California on Friday were the first to hear the news that Wreck-It Ralph‘s sequel will bring together the women who voiced iconic Disney princess roles over the years. To further drive home the impact of the big reveal, most of the actors themselves came together on stage for one epic photo.
Paige O’Hara (Belle in Beauty and the Beast) Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Linda Larkin (Jasmine in Aladdin), and Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid) embraced more modern princesses Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in Tangled), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Kristen Bell (Anna in Frozen), Kelly Macdonald (Merida in Brave), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in The Princess and the Frog), and, of course, Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz in the Wreck-It Ralph movies).
There’s more where they came from, too. Elsa, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and many others will also appear in this Avengers-style extravaganza.
As we learned from the D23 presentation, Wreck-It Ralph 2, officially titled Ralph Breaks the Internet, will bring Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope into the cyber world of online gaming, where figures from fairytales and Star Wars — yes, Star Wars! — cross paths. Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) voices a new character named Yesss, a digital trendsetter who gives the newcomers a tour inside the website OhMy.Disney, as shown in a clip screened at D23.
