Ralph Breaks The Internet is ambitious, overstuffed


There have been relatively few sequels produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation—that is, the flagship Disney cartoon brand, not Pixar or any of their TV divisions—and it’s easy to see why. Disney specializes in happy-ending family entertainment, and producing a follow-up to a beloved all-ages cartoon places the young audience’s desire for more up against the security and stability that comes when a story ends. Ralph Breaks The Internet, the first Disney-proper sequel of its latest golden age, doesn’t exactly untie a classic fairy-tale bow. But it does have to follow the particularly sweet and satisfying end of 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, a Disney cartoon that felt informed by Pixar and even Futurama as much as Disney’s older classics.
