Ralph Breaks the Internet is the sequel to the 2012 movie, Wreck It Ralph, in which video game characters live secret lives in a virtual world outside of their day jobs.

In this sequel, Ralph and Vanellope set off to fix Vanellope’s Sugar Rush game by going to the Internet and finding the only spare steering wheel left in the world on eBay.

Ralph and Vanellope don’t really understand how the internet works. Or money, and yet somehow they need to get both to work in their favor after accidentally bidding that steering wheel up to $27,000. Maybe some bee puns would help.

I don’t want to give away too much here. Ralph Breaks the Internet is a commentary on internet culture, online gaming, and healthy friendships. It’s also wickedly clever and surprisingly full of inside jokes and feminist Disney princesses.

Assuming you attend a screening where they don’t confiscate your phone or tell everyone not to use them (this is pretty standard at press screenings) you can also play Bunny Pancake Kitty Milkshake while you wait for the movie to start.

Stay to the very end. There are two post-credit sequences you don’t want to miss.

Ralph Breaks the Internet opens this Wednesday.
