Moana star teases Wreck-It Ralph 2's Disney princess cameos
The film, titled Ralph Breaks the Internet, will see Moana, Jasmine, Ariel, Rapunzel, and more members of Mouse House royalty join forces as Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) and Ralph (John C. Reilly) head to the world of online gaming. “The rest of the Disney princesses have teamed up and are helping Wreck-It Ralph 2 in its kind of digital age, which is really fun to see,” Cravalho tells EW at PEOPLE’S Ones to Watch event in Los Angeles. “It was a blast recording for it and I can’t wait for people to see it.”
Cravalho had her breakout moment as the lead in Disney’s Moana, and she’ll return as her character in Ralph Breaks the Internet.
The 16-year-old star recalled how fun it was to be a part of something with all the Disney princesses she grew up with. “I mean, not really grew up with, what am I? I’m 16, so that’s basically yesterday when I was a child,” she said. “But yeah, it was incredibly fantastic to hear their voices.”
Taraji P. Henson will also voice the character Yesss, a trendsetting algorithm for a website called Buzzaholic. “She’s always up on the latest trends, so she has the ability to constantly shift the look of her hair and clothes. And because she lives in a cyber world, her clothes are made of fiber optics,” co-director Phil Johnston explained at the D23 Expo earlier this year.
Also helmed by Rich Moore, the film will see characters from the Star Wars universe pop in for this new story. In an early scene shown to fans at the Disney convention, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty have some fun with C-3PO.
Ralph will break the internet on Nov. 21, 2018.
