Disney princesses unite on D23 stage for Wreck-It Ralph 2

Disney princesses unite on D23 stage for Wreck-It Ralph 2

During the Disney/Pixar animation panel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, Disney debuted new footage from Ralph Breaks the Internet, confirming certain other Disney-owned properties will appear. "Space", the title screen read, before the rest of the sentence filled in: "This space to be filled by a title when we think of one". Lasseter said they don't really like that title either, so he thought they'd look up what "2" is in Norwegian and it's "To". The lyrics here, exploring a variety of multicultural holiday traditions, are a little sharper and more acerbic than the ones Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez wrote for the original film.

Reuniting the cast from the animated 2013 musical smash, the 21-minute film will accompany Pixar's November feature "Coco". Parents should brace themselves for it to be played on repeat. The studio also got all of the original voice actors back, including The Little Mermaid's Jodi Benson (who nearly breaks into song at one point), Mulan's Ming-Na Wen, and Brave's Kelly MacDonald, who gets her own scene-stealing moment.

Vanellope gets made an honorary princess, and the others decide to follow her lead and ditch their evening gowns for more comfortable loungewear.

LA Galaxy struggle to sell tickets for Manchester United clash
Giovani dos Santos and Ashley Cole are now the best-known names in a Galaxy side stuttering in the MLS standings. Romelu Lukaku has been brought in from Everton to help fill the void.


Yesss shows the two around the Internet, including showing them a Marvel-yourself booth and introducing them to all the Disney princesses, who are voiced by their original actresses, who it turns out are all very misunderstood (i.e., Jasmine is allergic to cats). Brad Bird will also add his vocal stylings once again, as diminutive fashion designer Edna Mode, whose virtues were extolled to comedy effect in the below video. At this point, the voices of many favorite characters came out on stage. With his father distracted, the infant engages in battle with a marauding raccoon, deploying an assortment of powers from self-immolation and eye lasers to telekinesis and cloning. Toy Story 4 will hit theaters in summer of 2019. Cooley got his start as an story intern at Pixar, alongside producer Jonas Rivera, making the film more important to the duo than ever before.

Despite previous reports that he'd be co-directing the film (after taking the third installment off) Pixar leader John Lasseter won't be in the director's chair for Toy Story 4.

Pixar also announced a new film that is barely off the ground.

California man sentenced to 16 years in prison for killing 21 cats
When Farmer is released, he will have to register for probation until the terms of his entire 16-year sentence are satisfied. Farmer was caught with a hunting knife and fur-covered gloves inside his fluff-and-blood-spattered motor.


Untitled Dan Scanlon film Dan Scanlon, who directed "Monsters University", will direct an untitled film set in a suburban fantasy world where unicorns are as common as rats.

Scanlon plans on mixing the fantastical with the mundane, as the world has lost interest in magic in the untitled film. Concept art showed a magical tree looming over a parking lot full of ordinary looking sedans.

Ralph, Vanellope and Yesss arrive at the website, which is drawn like a hyper-advanced theme park where everything Disney comes alive: the Millennium Falcon soars through the sky, Iron Man takes off, and we even get to see a bit of interaction between Ralph and Tinkerbell (he gives her the nickname "Stinker Stomp", which she responds to with some aggressively-thrown fairy dust).
