Thank you to Disney Studios for hosting me during the Ralph Breaks The Internet Event, which included a sneak peek at Ralph Breaks VR!
Ralph Breaks VR at The VOID is opening on November 21, 2018, and I got an exclusive sneak peek of the hyper-reality experience while I was in town for the Ralph Breaks The Internet premiere!
What happens when you visit The VOID and take part in Ralph Breaks VR? You’ll suit up in your VR gear, which includes a visor and backpack. Teams of 4 then break into the internet, guided by Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz. You’ll enter the Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and face off against B.E.V., voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.”
“It’s incredible to work on an experience like Ralph Breaks VR that lets you live inside a film you’ve spent years creating,” said Pamela Ribon, Co-Writer for Ralph Breaks the Internet and Writer for Ralph Breaks VR. “ILMxLAB and The VOID have built a world where Ralph and Vanellope really come alive around you.”
My favorite part was visiting the Pancake Milkshake Dinner, where Fun Bun and Puddles Kitty join in on the fun.
As you might have guessed, I’m a big fan of Fun Bun…
You can buy tickets now to experience Ralph Breaks VR at The VOID website. Don’t forget to check out Ralph Breaks The Internet, in theaters on November 21, 2018!
