Oh My, Oh My! Disney has created an adorable new adventure with Wreck-It Ralph as he travels through the internet with his best friend in the whole world. They are on the hunt for ways to make bank, because they need money to fix Vanellope’s game. As Vanellope is trying to help come up with some money, she ends up at Oh My Disney.
Oh My Disney has EVERYTHING Disney in it, including the infamous Princess Scene. Anything and everything you ever thought about the Disney princesses is said out loud, and it was all from the very creative writer Pamela Ribon. Co-writer Pamela Ribon discussed the inspiration for the scene, and Ami Thompson (Art Director, characters) and Kira Lehtomaki (Head of Animation) also sat down with us to talk about everything that went into creating this crazy busy Disney World.
They spent hours and hours of time watching cat videos. Pamela talked a LOT about The Princess Scene because it was pretty much her baby. She was terrified to present this scene to the team that makes the decision of if it will make it into the movie or not. As she was sweating buckets, she realized they were laughing and nodding and everyone loved it. But how did it come about? She reached out to her friends and asked for help understanding the princesses. She asked questions like, who was enslaved? Who was kidnapped? Who fit into
The three of them were very excited about the entire storyline and the process of creating Oh My Disney. There was an entire process to bringing the Princesses into CG and into the world of comfort. The designers had a lot of fun creating the princesses pajamas. The whole crew came up with ideas for each princess shirts. They had a really hard time narrowing it down into one for each princess. You’ll have fun checking out those Pj’s when you watch Ralph Breaks the Internet this weekend.
Another interesting fact was how they researched the princesses. They went to the parks to meet the real princesses. They met the original voices of all the princesses. They also had a Princesspaloza where they worked with the art and animation department and played with the rigging, the facial expressions and just everything they needed to understand to bring each character into this new world of animation. They also worked a lot with Disney legend Mark Henn. Which is incredible. He really helped them understand how the princesses would move. It’s amazing how they worked together to create this amazing scene..
Ralph Breaks the Internet is in theaters November 21st.
