John Lasseter, Pixar and Walt Disney animation studios chief, said the directors of the film have asked the original voices of the princesses to reprise their roles.
Wreck It Ralph, which was shown in 2012, tells the story of Ralph, an antagonist in a game who was tired of being mistreated. He then tries to earn the respect of everyone by earning a medal. He then finds himself going through an escape pod where he meets new characters and adventures.
The presentation kicked off when Kristen and Josh Gad talked about the upcoming short film Olaf's Frozen Adventure.
The featurette will debut before Pixar's Coco, which hits theaters on November 22, and tells the story of Miguel, an aspiring musician whose Mexican family long ago banned music. – Vernise Tantuco, with a report from Agence France-Presse/Rappler.com
