Man this looks bunk. Just a bunch of pop culture 'lol internet' jokes. The first movie was so sweet and earnest.

This looks so cynical and manipulative.

How? It looks like self aware humor. The Emoji Movie was manipulative. I imagine most of the movie will take place on Disney properties because Disney knows itself.

I mean, I get where he's coming from (I get somewhat nauseous seeing all the product placement), but yes, the characters seem to be present and inside the joke here. And the first one was "lol videogame jokes", so the fact that Vanellope is sass-backing the literal title of the movie gives me positive vibes for the flick, among other things shown in the trailer. At the very least, it looks like it will be fun, harmless entertainment. I loved the first one so much, I'm seeing this one either way. I'm excited.

I'm in love with this Cinderella and Pocahontas tbh.

I think the first movie marketed its product placement and guest stars a lot too but most had little to do with the real plot and heart of the movie, and I am hopeful this one will be the same, I guess...it could end up being "bunk" lol. But I have faith myself.

Oh, you don't need to convince me. Any time it's shoved in my face as concentrated as it was in the trailer, I have a knee-jerk reaction to cringe in disgust. But if you read my posts, you'll know I'm optimistic as well. :)

Doesn't mean the movie won't be garbage, but so far, and regardless of it's successful predecessor, even just the richness of the medium has me captivated enough to see this on the big screen.

Gal Gadot will be voicing a new character known as Shank from a game(?) called Slaughter Race! https://twitter.com/galgadot/status/1027933469651939329?s=21



Some descriptions of the character from Rich Moore and Gal Gadot:

Moore: She is the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race. Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart - that’s the duality of that character.

Gadot: Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her. But as the movie goes on you realize how fun, wise and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her

It’s featured in the trailer? Isn’t the KHI spoiler policy that content shown in official promotions doesn’t require spoiler tags? Sorry if I ruined the film for you, but it’s not really my job to keep you from looking at this stuff...

Going to guess that the blue girl helping Ralph is the ''surprise shock twist, villain " ( King Candy, Stinky Pete, Prince Hans, Lotso etc) and the Shank girl is the "Red Herring " ( Duke of Weselton etc)

I hope I'm wrong about this, otherwise, urghygh.

Agree. This movie screams "come to see our movie for a 20 second Princess scene and easter egg of Kermit the frog !!"

How? It looks like self aware humor. The Emoji Movie was manipulative. I imagine most of the movie will take place on Disney properties because Disney knows itself.
A good Disney parody movie would be Enchanted, or even Shrek which was done by an ex- Disney worker. Disney ( and ex- Disney) that make fun of Disney, but still has a good story, good characters, and a good message. This just screams "We won't even really try, because we all know that you are going to see this anyways just for the Princesses or Star Wars cameos "

I can imagine Shank and Vanellope having a sisterly version of the dynamic between Jim Hawkins and John Silver in Treasure Planet.

Meh!
might bring a giggle, but what exactly is the plot outside of retrieving something and fixing Sugar Rush?
This feels very forced for some reason. Seems like people at the studio have referenced fanart of DP in modern clothes.

I'm not going to make a judgement call on it yet.

The movie is getting great early reactions! The main criticism I’m seeing is that it isn’t a film for people who use the internet regularly for work and stuff, perhaps due to subtext about dangers of internet usage?

I just want to know if there are any KH Easter eggs.

I honestly wish it hadn't veered off into the internet realm. There's so much more they could have done in within the boundary of VGs, but the fact that it's shifted means we're probably less likely to get that reference we all want, right? I'm clearly going to see this. I loved the original, and I like the VOs. Maybe KH will get some love even if clinically so (corporate marketing pressuring them to reference it due to the upcoming game).

Yes please! We'd all go insane no matter how small it'd be.

But you know what make fans go really, really, reeeeaaally insane? If there was a stinger where one of the princesses answers a knock on the door and it's Kairi.

Man. " Can I have Cheeseburger ?" This movie has aged jokes and dead memes already in it and it even hasn't come out yet. This movie is going to be cringe in five-ten years time.
