Right, so let’s get this out of the way first: this is trailer #2, not trailer #3. There was a teaser, then the first trailer, and now this trailer. Other sites conflate trailers with teasers. Stick with SCIFI.radio, and you’ll always get your trailer numbers right.
Now are you ready for this? We thought the original film was pretty fantastic, and the previous trailer was pretty amazing, but pause the SCIFI.radio stream using the control at the top of the page and watch this new one.
This trailer reveals a little more of the storyline of the new film. We learn that the reason Ralph and Vanellope leave for the internet in the first place is that Vaneloppe’s game Sugar Rush has been broken by a ham-handed arcade customer. With the steering wheel broken in half, the arcade owner Mr. Stan Litwak has no choice but to unplug the machine. Sugar Rush refugees flood the gateway station.
Vanellope’s only hope is to somehow find a place to get that replacement steering wheel, pay for it, and have it shipped back to Litwak’s Arcade. In the interrim, all kinds of bad stuff happens, and Ralph and Vaneloppe have to solve it together.
But Vaneloppe realizes that there is no track, and that she can drive anywhere. As long as she can do what she was made to do, she’s happy. But how does she tell Ralph she doesn’t want to go back?
Ralph Breaks the Internet stars Sarah Silverman as Vanellope and John C. Reilly as Ralph, and arrives on the big screen on November 19.
Oh, and yes, Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley is in the soundtrack for the trailer. Will we play it on SCIFI.radio, now that it’s associated with a geek franchise, like we do everything else? I don’t know. Maybe some lines shouldn’t be crossed.
