Wreck-It Ralph 2 is packing in more familiar faces than a Kingdom Hearts game! We watched animation tests of Helen Parr/Elastigirl and baby Jack Jack walking and both looked more fluid than anything seen in the first movie. The Upcoming Films is taking the stage at the event with John Lasseter himself hosting! And gives them a wardrobe change. Additionally, in the footage that was screened for the audience, there were reports that Ralph will be fighting off pop-up ads. Here, they come across Yesss (Henson), their guide who's a trendy, savvy chick of the web and always on the pulse of what's ticking. She is an algorithm for the site BuzzAholic.

C-3PO enters and tells them Princesses they are needed. Oh My Disney - the place where you can find Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar. "They are all hilarious, emotional, attractive and make you think", Lasseter told a delighted crowd.

Based on reports out of D23, it may be that viewers will only get brief glimpses of C-3PO and Stan Lee as Ralph and Vanellope explore the internet.

In addition to Disney royalty, the stormtroopers from Star Wars and C-3PO also make an appearance.

"Those flawless models of femininity are the princesses", Yesss explains. However, he doesn't listen and Vanellope proceeds to cause trouble. Director Rich Moore confirms that these princesses will be voiced by the original voice actors.

Facebook's New Camera Feature Lets You Create Your Own GIFs
Prior to this, the company had historically held off on enabling GIFs because it would make the feed "too chaotic", it believes. The new GIF function on the Facebook iOS app seems to show that the company is trying to embrace the GIF like never before.

"It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on", said Lasseter, stating that that only "a minute" will have passed between films.

In another memorable moment, Lasseter shared a spoof documentary revealing what the real-life fashion world thinks of super-suit stylist Edna Mode from Pixar's 2004 Oscar-winning animation "The Incredibles".

Of course, we do know that Vanellope's interaction with the Disney Princess characters is a little bit more extensive, and is likely more akin to Ralph's Bad-Anon meeting in the original film. When Merida says something in her thick Scottish accent, Vanellope says, "I can't understand her".

There was a world-first screening of one scene from "Ralph Wrecks the Internet: Wreck it Ralph 2" that deliciously sends up Disney princesses from the studio's history.

By the end of Wreck-It Ralph, both Ralph and Vanellope have found a sense of belonging in their respective games, but the dynamic duo will return for another adventure in Ralph Breaks the Internet.
