WRECK-IT RALPH 2 Will Reportedly Not Feature A Main Antagonist
Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 will see the old school arcade character venture deep into internet culture and it seems Walt Disney Animation Studios wants to focus exclusively on that journey.
What does the lack of a primary villain for Ralph, Vanellope, and Fix-it Felix to overcome this time around mean for the sequel? The film's producer, Clark Spencer, was present in London yesterday to field this question and more from attending journalists.
Spencer goes into further detail in the video below, where he reveals that Ralph and Vanellope's journey into the internet creates friction between the two as Vanellope falls in love with the place while Ralph wants to return to his arcade cabinet as quickly as possible.
"Really, the idea of the story is- two characters, who go from a small town, the arcade in this case, to the large city [the internet]. And one falls in love with it and the other just wants to get back home. And so the 'baddie' in the film, if you will, becomes Ralph battling the concept that he might actually have to let Vanellope lead her own life. It really is a very emotional story, for parents, I think [it resonates with] that moment in time where you have to say goodbye to your children as they go off to college. Or for kids, it's that moment in time where two best friends are going to separate."
Wreck-It-Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet hits theaters on November 21, 2018.
