Celebrate Internet Day with ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet'

Happy birthday, world wide web! As “Ralph Breaks the Internet” star Sarah Silverman explains in a special celebratory video, today marks the 49th anniversary of the first online communication. On October 29, 2019, two computers “spoke” for the first time through the budding ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). Attempting to communicate the word “LOGIN,” the whole thing crashed after just two letters. Still, without that failure, we wouldn’t have the advanced internet we have today or, say, brand new clips featuring Alan Tudyk’s friendly search bar, Knowsmore:

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” features the return of Silverman’s Vanellope alongside John C. Reilly as Wreck-it Ralph, Jack McBrayer as Fix-It Felix and Jane Lynch as Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun, alongside newcomer Taraji P. Henson as Yesss the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

A Walt Disney Pictures release, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”).

Look for “Ralph Breaks the Internet” in theaters November 21, 2018.
