Anaheim, California: Leaving the arcade behind, the sequel to the 2012 hit Wreck-it Ralph, is venturing into the Internet universe with Hidden Figures star Taraji P Henson as the new addition to the voice cast.

Henson will play Yess, a trend-aholic algorithm who acts like a guide to Ralph (John C Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman).

The story sees the duos game break down and require a replacement part, causing the characters to venture into the wild world of the Internet.

Silverman, along with directors Rich Moore (who won an Oscar earlier this year for Zootopia) and Phil Johnston, were onstage to present a clip of the movie.

The clip showed Vanellope, in a website named OhMyDisney.com, meeting all the Disney princesses in the hopes of stirring up some trouble. As she interacts with them, she develops a respect for them and gives them a wardrobe change.

Many of the original voices of the princesses returned for the scene, including Jodi Benson (Ariel), Paige OHara (Belle), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel), Kelly Macdonald (Merida), Aulii Cravalho (Moana) and Kristen Bell (Anna).

Produced by Oscar winner Clark Spencer, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is scheduled to release on 21 November, 2018.
