Have you ever wanted to step into the world of one of your favorite movies? You can do that just that with a virtual reality (VR) experience with The VOID’s “Ralph Breaks VR” experience! As part of our Ralph Breaks The Internet press trip, I was able to not only have my 1st ever VR experience, but be among the very 1st people to experience “Ralph Breaks VR”. And it was INCREDIBLE!!!! It was truly a completely immersive experience – nothing like ANYTHING I’ve ever done before! It felt like you were right in the movie, hanging out with Ralph & Vanellope! SO MUCH FUN!
What is Ralph Breaks VR?
It’s an original multi-sensory, immersive experience launching on November 21st, bringing Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet to hyper-reality. Ralph Breaks VR is developed by The VOID (the global leader in immersive virtual experiences) and ILMxLAB (Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment division), in partnership with Walt Disney Animation Studios. “Designing the elements that pull you irresistibly into the unique world of Ralph and Vanellope has been an incredibly fun process,” said Curtis Hickman, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of The VOID. “What we’ve created together with ILMxLAB is an astounding adventure that allows people to experience a unique extension of Wreck-It Ralph’s detailed characters, environments and stories. With this new experience we are able to truly showcase the capabilities of The VOID, allowing guests to once more step beyond reality.”
In teams of 4, guests will break into the internet with Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz disguised as characters from the film called “Netizens” to play the newest, coolest video game ever. Ralph Breaks VR introduces two brand new locations, Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and a new antagonist, B.E.V. voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.” Here’s a sneak peek:
“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.”
