Oh, and a scene where Ralph has to escape being crushed by a horde of sea lions.

You mean Vanellope surely.

tbh I hated Vanellope even though I liked WIR. She was a horrible little shit. (sorry)

Eh, you must have forgotten how bad the Emoji movie was, because this wasn't that bad.

The referential humor not so much "winking" at you, like it did in the original, but punching you in the ribs to see if you got it, was the first thing that made me wince. Ralph and Vannelope taking a game away from a little girl for their own amusement, when they both know that's not what games are about, was worse.

This looks good. Not as good as the first one but that's to be expected.

I can see that. I too agree it is unsubtle in its humor - and although I think you're jumping the gun about the later, I can see where you're coming from.

It's still orders of magnitude above Emoji Movie.

I'm reeeeally hoping that the 'lol internet' front they're showing us right now is only like 5-10% of the movie and there's actually a surprising twist that turns everything on its head that we have no inkling of yet...

Buuuuut I fear what we see now is what we'll get, and while I imagine it won't be utter dreck like Emoji, I just dunno if I can get hyped about seeing a Ralph movie if it doesn't have Bowser drinking tea at a baddies anonymous meeting.

Disclaimer: I don't begrudge or think anything less of anyone who liked the trailer? I just thought it was reaching for a different kind of humor than the first one, and that this new kind of humor didn't sit with me personally.

That said...

Like I mentioned elsewhere, the themes I read into WIR were of grown-ups dealing with their own dissatisfaction and obsolescence by finding purpose in guiding new, younger generations. The trappings of the film were secondary to this central message, but it was nice that said trappings were consistent, depicted their conceit in clever ways, and made jokes that invited the audience into a secret language.

My hopes for an Internet-based WIR are about using the concept of online gaming, as opposed to "just" the internet in general, to say something about its toxicity AND community --especially in competitive gaming. The bit with the iPad game could also have something to say about gatekeeping and someone saying, "Oh, those aren't real games, like ours!" It's presumptuous to try to guess at a movie's themes long before it opens, I know, but I do want to imagine there IS a theme after all the "aren't pop-up ads obnoxious!" gags and ebay non-sequiturs.

I wonder if the main bad guy is going to be some MMORPG schlub that breaks out of the game and onto the Internet, where his orc and ogre armies lay siege to eBay and Tumblr. And YouPorn.

In the first movie Ralph was a 21st century tech prole who redeemed himself by embracing philosophy and family, then punched out capitalism. It was the single weirdest character arc I've ever seen in a family movie. Do they even know how to make a movie that weird again?

So between this and the Incredibles 2 trailer we're 0/2 on Disney CG movies looking any good this year so far.

I've never heard this interpretation but now I wish to take it as a college course.

I kind of hope they don't go back to the old salt of a dorky, seemingly harmless comic relief character who befriends the leads, only to be unmasked as the villain later. Maybe they could just have Ralph make a nuisance of himself until the entire internet starts an army and kicks him offline, or something.

So presumably this movie has an extended sequence of Ralph finding unfulfilling work as someone's chatroom avatar, and the third gets really bogged down in the metaphysical premise of "dead" videogame characters just having an "alive" flag turned off, which is a treatable condition?
