One of the most anticipated films this year is Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and hopefully the flick will feature the same passion for 8-bit gaming as the original. Wreck-It Ralph, which received an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for Best Animated Feature, was released back in 2012 and it’s been a long timing for a sequel!
This time out video game antagonist (but with a heart of gold) Ralph (John C. Reilly) helps Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) navigate the perilous world wide web in search of a replacement to save Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush. The flick also features the voice talents of Taraji P. Henson, Kristen Bell, Alan Tudyk, andMandy Moore. Check out the teaser trailer and tell us what you think!
Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph opens nationwide November 21.
Vanessa Hudgens’ lifelong love of music is evident from her work in the High School Musical films and early in her career she also released two solo pop albums (V and Identified). Along with her Broadway run of Gigi, Hudgens also played Betty Rizzo in Grease Live!, and now she’s playing insurance adjuster Emily Locke on NBC’s Powerless.
“It’s so hard to foresee what I’m going to do because I’m not sure what opportunity will rise,” says Hudgens. “I’m not sure what I will be most scared of because I feel like if it scares me a ton, it’s all the more reason why I should do it. It’s kind of just leaning into that and trying new things. Comedy is quite new to me and it’s hard, so I’m very blessed and fortunate that I have an amazing cast who are so good at it.”

Co-starring Alan Tudyk and Danny Pudi, Powerless airs Thursday nights on NBC (8:30 pm et/pt).
“My most comfortable place is to be on stage,” says Vanessa Hudgens, star of the new NBC series Powerless. “I grew up doing theater and I love nothing more than being able to tell a story through song and dance.”
With the High School Musical films, Grease Live, and a Broadway run of Gigi under her belt, Hudgens has her feet firmly planted in the musical world. That being said, the actress is always up for a challenge, and in the past several years she’s done solid dramatic work in The Frozen Ground, Gimme Shelter, and Spring Breakers. Now she’s sharpening her comedic chops in Powerless with co-stars Alan Tudyk, Christina Kirk, Danny Pudi, and Ron Funches.
“It’s just a well supported team that I get to be a part of,” says Hudgens. “So I feel very safe and I’m having so much fun but learning a lot at the same time.”
