2012's Wreck-It Ralph featured so many cool references to classic video games, and now, in 2018's Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet, Ralph and Vanellope will be traversing the internet in their newest adventure. Luckily, the two will be avoiding some of the darker parts of the web and enjoying the fun of Disney and all its wonders.
The first trailer delivered some quick-witted takes on internet culture, but the latest one take Vanellope to a very familiar place for Disney fans. In the newest trailer, the duo leaves the arcade, heads to the internet, and ends up in Disney's world--pun intended. There, they are surrounded by all the properties the company has purchased throughout the years, like Star Wars and Marvel. It was a delight to the senses for any Disney fan, and there was a ton to take in.
We went through every part of this trailer to find every Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars reference in the video, and yes, most of them were Disney princesses. Here is what we found.
In the background of the arcade, numerous well-known games can be seen: Dance Dance Revolution, Street Fighter II, Dragon's Lair, Pac Man, Space Invaders, Frogger, and Virtua Cop. This is the only time the trailer references video games.
