I thought we were getting the full princess scene they showed at D23 in the bonus features. Can't find it. Am I missing something?

Nope, it's 100% not there. In fact, we shockingly get barely anything with the Princesses.

Yeah, I don't know why they said that it was going to be on it....when it's not. It's especially bizarre since the whole thing is done. Seems like a waste of footage if it's never shown to public :scratch:

I wonder why on earth it wasn't on there ... were the discs produced before they used the Princesses in their marketing for it ?

Or maybe will they do a whole disc for the Wrecked Princesses themselves; like an iTunes bundle or something ?

Don't know if mom jeans are the right look for Rapunzel, tbh.

A friend of mine thinks that this movie is creatively bankrupt and cynical, and thinks that it consists mostly of Disney just flaunting its monopolistic purchases and how much its empire is expanding.

Your friend speaks for a lot of us here as well as many people outside of this forum as well. I'm glad the film didn't top the box office of the original when adjusted for inflation.

The thing is, though, the movie doesn't actually linger on those Disney references for too long.

I'm shocked they're still doing new dolls when it's clear that Disney has weirdly moved on from the Wrecked Princess franchise. I suspected one or two back to school stuff from Disney. But guess it's dead.

I wondered why the Wrecked Princess Funko Pop line never happened...

I noticed this movie was on Netflix the other day when I watched Mary Poppins Returns and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse at someone else's house. I watched maybe the first half hour, but didn't have time to finish the rest. I'll get around to it some time this month.

Of course they are. Why release them together when they can make more money...

I didn’t have much thought about this one, and little to no expectations going in either. I actually thought it was kind of boring… Most of the Internet characters had interesting designs (Yesss, the internet search desk guy, the eBay boy), I guess. A film where Ralph had a romance with Ralph EDIT: correction :P , with Yess while Vanellope was over in Slaughter Race would’ve been more interesting than what we got. I’m guessing the reason they didn’t go through with a romance is that they wanted the separation from Vanellope be a big dramatic moment at the end instead of just a walk away for Ralph to visit her any time he wanted. What’s stupid to me is that they make it out as if it would be so hard for Ralph to go online any time the arcade is dark to visit Vanellope and/or Yesss (in the case she had been a love interest). It didn’t seem like a hard thing at all for him to go online at the beginning of the movie.

Anyway, Vanellope was probably the only character I liked in the first one, but she didn’t really feel like Vanellope to me in this. Maybe it’s because she and Ralph are friends at this point, but I missed the snarkiness. In the first film, Vanellope was smarter than Ralph while still being much more childish than him. In this one, she seemed like she was his babysitter. I didn’t care for the song as it is in the film. Julia Michaels’ version was better.

Now I’ve seen the princess scene, I have no idea what all the hullabaloo was about. I thought it was cute*, and I liked how they made a medley of their various themes when they rescue Ralph at the end. I made the little avatars in the end credits into a signature. :D I loved how they mocked Merida—a PIXAR princess shouldn’t even be there, imo. My only complaint is the whole scene feels very short. I’d have to look at stillshots to get a good look at their “comfy” clothes because they’re blink-and-you’ll-miss-it. The one silver lining to this film flopping is that if it had done well, they might’ve actually—stupidly—thought to make Vanellope part of the Disney Princess line. I still would love if they made a Wrecked Princesses spinoff, personally, complete with a Menken soundtrack. I would die if Tiana finally got the Menken song she deserved (and was stolen from her because of Lasseter inflicting Randy Newman on the film)!

* Although all the reactions online may be the reason the scene isn’t awful in the finished product, especially helping the designs be a little bit better. Jasmine still looked the worst, imo.

Oh, gross @ “girl squad.” Using Taylor Swift’s faux feminist vernacular, ugh. I can't stand that wants-to-have-her-cake-and-eat-it-too phony anymore. I liked her as a songwriter at one time, but where was she when white supremacists were using her song lyrics two years ago?

I actually happen to love Beyonce, regardless of the demanding rumors, because I love her music, singing voice and do find her a genuine and warm person nonetheless. But I don't mind that Anika got the part.

I like her, too. All stars are demanding, not just the female stars, so that isn't something I dislike about her. She knows what she's worth, and that's a good thing. You brought up JLO, and I cannot stand her anymore. All those years on Idol pretty much showed her true colors. Live TV really exposes some people.

^The pop version is in fact played as the second end credits song but that doesn't get Disney completely off the hook. They could have easily put it as the first one and chosen to promote it as the movie's main song instead of the Imagine Dragons one.

I don't get why they didn't have Julia Michaels' song first either. She's a well-known name herself and "In This Place" is better--and more central to the movie--than "Zero." I like some of Imagine Dragons songs, but "Zero" sucked. I agree with you that the decision was obviously made because Disney wanted to stick it to Menken some more, just like how they didn't even submit anything for Galavant. As you said earlier in this thread, Rich Moore pushing for it is the only reason Menken was there (just like the hand-drawn introduction of Moana only exists because M&C had to fight for it, because Disney didn't allow them the choice of making a full hand-drawn film). I'm not sure who to blame for the treatment of Menken specifically, although I've always thought it was Lasseter. I'm glad Lasseter is no longer a Disney employee for that reason. His downfall--albeit for other, disgusting things--couldn't have happened to a more deserving person, after how he treated Menken, the hand-drawn animators, not to mention animators in general because of the wage-fixing scandal. Screw him and everyone who gave him that much power in the first place.

What’s more upsetting is you don’t even see how Felix and Calhoun raise the kids. The kids are literally perfect angels at the end and it comes out of nowhere. And get this: Felix and Calhoun explain to the Surge Protector how they raised the kids. You don’t even hear it. It’s blocked out by the car beeps. Yes, seriously. I get that it’s a joke of how they were written out of the movie, but it’s still a big slap to the face who really want to see these characters.

I thought it was more a joke about the fact that nobody knows the "perfect" way to raise kids.

Sotiris wrote:
Lasseter is to blame for the Wrecked Princesses! He was the one who pushed for their inclusion. It's no coincidence the princess scene was changed to be more respectful and less irreverent as soon as he left. Can't say I'm surprised. He always resented the '90s Disney movies and their success and this was just another attempt of his to sully their legacy. If only he had been fired sooner, all of this could have been avoided.

Quote:
The movie’s filmmakers had a crucial ally for the updated portrayal: former chief creative officer John Lasseter, who had long wanted to bring the princesses down to earth, colleagues say. Mr. Lasseter had received approval and support for the scene from Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger, the CEO, according to people familiar with the matter.

“If I were to make the movies you guys wanted me to make about princesses, I would be murdered,” Mr. Lasseter once told a group raising concerns about the character Merida’s cynical attitude in “Brave,” according to a former colleague. He said, “I couldn’t make the movies Walt Disney made today.”

I feel gross imagining how he'd like to portray the princesses. :huh:

Oh and since we're on the subject of Disney Princesses and in light of some of the recent criticisms made about them, here's a quote from The Disney Odyssey in their article about the little Mermaid

Quote:
It seems as if viewers complain when female protagonists are ‘passive’ and also when they are ‘active’, when they are ‘kind’ and when they are ‘rebellious’. If protagonists are female, from critical point of view, they are always under scrutiny. It is annoying. Why can’t a character just be what it is … a character?! Characters who have virtues and vices, positive and negative qualities, etc.

https://thedisneyodyssey.wordpress.com/ ... maid-1989/
This is so accurate. I don't know how often I've had to see and read people enraged over empowered female characters. Amazing--and disgusting.

I have to say that I was quite disappointed with this movie. I liked the original, but this one felt like a hollow, soulless imitation doubling as a commercial.

The sequel doesn't bother me because the first one was already hollow and soulless product placement. To me, anyway.

She does! With a touch of Megara's attitude, maybe.

It will be fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine, I’m sure.. :roll:
They will officially announce Dragon Empire which seems like a interesting project centered around Asia (which is nice imo I think Disney haven’t made enough projects focused on the cultures of Asia) and it will be a fantasy movie! which is also nice.

And then they will announce their 2021 project which as far as we know will be an original film and not another sequel, since apparently Zootopia 2 won’t be announce this summer at the expo.. And any original movie is better than another sequel I guess..

Dark Horse Comics is offering a D23 Expo-exclusive comic book called "Hearts from the Start, Eyes on the Prize" featuring the Wrecked Princesses and illustrated by Amy Mebberson. All the content of this comic book was taken from the previously-released Click Start: A Select-Your-Story Adventure. There's no new material. They simply added a new cover and some pins as a gift.
