When the trailer for Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 first began, I have to admit that I panicked a little bit.
See, I really enjoyed the first Wreck-It Ralph, even though I’m not totally convinced that it’s a film that really needed a sequel. However, whether needed or not, a sequel to any successful animated film is pretty much a given so my main hope was that the sequel would at least not damage the legacy of the original.
And then this trailer started.
And there’s Wreck-It Ralph entering the internet and we get some quick, cutesy product placement for Twitter and Snapchat and I was just like, “OH MY GOD! EMOJI MOVIE! NOOOOOOO!”
Am I alone in that reaction? I bet not.
But, I stuck with the trailer and actually, it looks like this movie might be a little bit more self-aware than the Emoji Movie. I mean, it basically looks like it’s going to be a commercial for Disney but maybe it’ll actually have a sense of humor about its reason for existing. The scene with all of the princesses would seem to suggest that might be the case.
Plus, Iron Man’s in it and y’all know how much I love iron men…
I’ll give it a shot!
