D23 2017: Taraji P. Henson, Anika Noni Rose To Appear In Ralph Breaks The Internet

Disney dropped some bombs at D23 about this film that I did not expect–like Golden Globe winner Taraji P. Henson and triple threat Anika Noni Rose appear in the new Disney/Pixar animated film, Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Ralph Breaks The Internet is the follow up sequel to 2012’s Wreck it Ralph. The film takes place inside the video game Wreck it Ralph, where it’s main antagonist, Ralph (John C.Riley), decides to hang up his bad boy image in exchange for becoming one of the good guys. When he gives up his villainous mantle, he meets Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) who teaches him humility and what it takes to be a hero.

The sequel takes place in a whole different plane of existence as the characters from the first film get a bit of an upgrade. Wreck It Ralph the game, has a major malfunction which renders the game inoperable. Now, Ralph and Vanellope must venture venture into the wild World Wide Web as it’s the only way to fix the game. Henson will play Yesss, an all-trend consuming algorithm who helps the duo navigate their way around the network. With her 4C hair, dark complexion, and Taraji’s signature quirks, this character is sure to be a hit with Disney fans, especially, young black girls.

Another major bomb-drop at D23 is that actress/singer Anika Noni Rose will be reprising her role as Princess Tiana from The Princess and The Frog. She joins a long list of Disney Princesses who will be making cameos in Ralph Breaks The Internet. What’s fascinating is Disney brought together the original voice talent for their most revered characters to include:

Paige O’Hara (Belle in Beauty and the Beast), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in Tangled), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz in Wreck-It Ralph and Ralph Breaks the Internet), Kristen Bell (Anna in Frozen), Kelly Macdonald (Merida in Brave), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in The Princess and the Frog), Linda Larkin (Jasmine in Aladdin), and Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid).

The Disney convention marks the first time all 10 actresses have been together in person.

Look for Taraji and Anika in Ralph Breaks the Internet, set to open in theaters November 21, 2018.
