Ralph Breaks The Internet

By December 11, 2018January 8th, 2019Film Club

Release Date: 30th November 2018

Wreck It Ralph and his best friend Vanellope, go online to find a replacement controller for Sugar Rush, the colourful, candy-and-chocolate-themed racing game in which she competes. But soon enough, they lose their bearings and minds amid the labyrinth of the internet. From the off you’re quickly transported from the 8bit nostalgia to the horrifyingly vivid depiction of the World Wide Web. The internet’s many quirks like ad pop ups, social media and online shopping are hilariously accurate and incredibly relatable. Throwing online gaming into the mix quickly pushes Vanellope and Ralph’s friendship loyalties to the limit.

There’s no faulting this sequels many layers of references and familiar faces, from the likes of Disney princesses, Star Wars and the epic Marvel universe. Ralph Breaks The Internet is no wreck, thanks to several big laughs and some sweet messages about online behaviour that should connect with both kids and parents.
