Filmmakers, voice talent and special guests walked the red carpet at Curzon Mayfair to celebrate Ralph and Vanellope’s return to the big screen. Attendees include voice talent John C. Reilly (voice of Ralph), Sarah Silverman (voice of Vanellope) and Gal Gadot (voice of Shank), plus filmmakers Rich Moore (director), Phil Johnston (director/screenwriter) and Clark Spencer (producer).

Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opened in U.S. theaters on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018.

IMG_4359

You guyssssssssss…..I LITERALLY CAN NOT!!!

I caught the official teaser trailer for the live action version of THE LION KING last night and I can not wait until July 19, 2019! This is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time and I was a bit worried about how it would look as a live action movie. But this is on another level! I mean, seriously! Who hasn’t bawled their eyes out during THAT scene?? Can you imagine it in live action??? Disney, please let everyone know where we can send our therapy bills for payment. K, thanks, bye.

Side note: Usually, I’ll minimize the size of the posters when I attach them to my posts, but this one is staying it’s original size for visual effect lol.

Check it out for yourself & let me know your thoughts:

If that wasn’t enough to convince you (& I sincerely hope it was), check out this side by side video comparing the 1994 version to the 2019 trailer.

Bonus Features:

BLU-RAY & DIGITAL*:

New Signature Collection Bonus

  • Stories from Walt’s Office: Walt & Flight – “Think of the happiest things, it’s the same as having wings”. One thing you’ll notice inside Walt Disney’s office are all of the models and pictures of airplanes. Walt loved planes and was an aficionado of flying. As a continuation of the “Stories from Walt’s Office” series, we’ll soar into the world of one of Walt’s favorite pastimes and look at the history behind the company airplane he used to scout Central Florida looking for the perfect place to build his second theme park.
  • A “Darling” Conversation with Wendy & John: Kathryn Beaumont and Paul Collins – Join Disney Legend Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Wendy) and Paul Collins (the voice of John) as they reunite for the first time in many years to reminisce and discuss their experiences working on Peter Pan, meeting Walt Disney and learning to fly … literally.
