The film takes a few hilarious twists and turns as they begin to question if Vanellope is an actual princess or not by referencing all the generic princess tropes, such as being cursed, kidnapped, having magical powers, or major daddy issues.

"Wreck-It Ralph 2" was part of a presentation of Disney's upcoming films at D23, a gathering for Disney fans in Southern California.

Although there's less than a year to go until its release, we know next to nothing about Disney-Pixar's plans for The Incredibles 2, the hotly-anticipated sequel to the 2004 animated superhero movie.

First up was an update from DisneyToon Studios with a short promo called "The Speed Test".

If past D23 Expos are any indication, we're about to be treated to a lot of Disney surprises in addition to announced looks at Disney•Pixar's upcoming Coco and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

The clip showed stunning desert landscape and a pair of jets zipping through canyons.

The film is due out in 2019. Henson is one of the best actresses out there, and it sounds like she (and the viewers) will have plenty of fun skewering modern Internet "culture" sites like Buzzfeed. "They don't actually have any holiday traditions of their own and it breaks Olaf's tiny little heart to see the girls so sad".

Nicole Paradis Grindle and John Walker are producing Incredibles 2, which is set for release on June 15, 2018.

The trio introduced a clip of directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee's trip to Norway, Iceland and Finland, where they drew inspiration for the sequel.

The panel also included footage which showed Ralph and Vanellope heading into the internet.

While Vanellope seems to know what the is, Ralhp's clueless. Henson will play Yesss, a denizen of the internet, who helps Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) make their way through its hordes of spammers and rampaging "sexy housewives" ads.

By the end of Wreck-It Ralph, both Ralph and Vanellope have found a sense of belonging in their respective games, but the dynamic duo will return for another adventure in Ralph Breaks the Internet.

"Those ideal models of femininity are the princesses", Yesss explains.
