Six years after the release of the arcade game adventure movie “Wreck-It Ralph,” Walt Disney Animation Studios returned Nov. 21 with a sequel: “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” picks up six years later, following the events of the first movie. Ralph, voiced by John C. Reilly, and Vanellope, voiced by Sarah Silverman are still the best of friends, spending every night together while Litwak’s Family Fun Center and arcade is closed.

However, it quickly becomes clear that Vanellope has gotten tired of the dullness of her life, with the three race car tracks in her own racing game Sugar Rush. Ralph tries to give Vanellope something new by building her a new experimental track, but the game player accidentally breaks arcade owner Litwak’s game steering wheel.

With the company that built Sugar Rush having gone out of business, Litwak decides it’s easier to dispose of the game entirely, leaving Vanellope jobless, rather than spending an outrageous amount of money on a replacement part. Ralph decides to go into the Internet and buy the replacement part for the game himself.

However, it becomes clear that Ralph and Vanellope don’t see eye to eye when it comes to their dreams of what their lives can be. It remains to be seen if their friendship will be able to survive their own insecurities and the Internet.

“I thought it was about the same excitement as the first movie. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and would watch again with my family,” said Jeanette Marquez. “Overall, I thought the movie was funny, heartwarming and a great film to watch with your family.

The Oarsman gives “Ralph Breaks the Internet” a 4/5.
