Disney animation brought “Ralph Breaks the Internet” to the New York Comic Con, introducing fans to the cast and characters in a special panel, including some of the biggest personalities on the real-world internet. Dani Fernandez, who also hosted the panel, Colleen Ballinger, and Tiffany Herrera, can all be seen and heard in “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”
As digital influencers, they were called on to portray themselves, adding validity to the internet depicted in the film. Flula Borg, German actor, comedian and YouTube personality (DJ Flula), lends his voice to Maybe, the dedicated assistant of website entrepreneur Yesss.
GloZell Green, rapper/YouTube personality, was previously announced as the voice of Little Debbie from Slaughter Race.
“We wanted to cast these roles with people who embody the best of the internet,” said director Rich Moore.
The panel also screened 20 minutes of the film, which included many never before seen clips, and generally received rave reviews. Looks like Disney waiting for the right movie to release its second sequel.

About the film:
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of theinternet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. 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. The film is 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” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
