From delicate, dainty girls to tough-as-nails warrior women, Disney princesses have come in all forms since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. A new clip from Ralph Breaks the Internet puts them front and center when they meet the most unlikely princess of their kind, Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman).
Uploaded on USA Today's Twitter, the clip opens with the Disney princesses relaxing in a private room when Penelope teleports in. This startles the princesses, who immediately surround her, Cinderella (Jennifer Hale) even turning one of her glass slippers into a makeshift shiv. After explaining she's also a princess, Penelope is then bombarded by questions from her fellow princesses.
Among said questions are: If she possesses magic hair like Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), if she was cursed like Aurora (Kate Higgins) and Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), or enslaved like Rapunzel and Belle (Paige O'Hara). This leads to Ariel (Jodi Benson) assuming Vanellope made a deal with an evil sea witch for a pair of human legs in exchange for her voice, to which a horrified Vanellope responds, "No! Good lord, who would do that?"
Before the clip ends, when Jasmine (Linda Larkin) asks her if she has problems with her father, Vanellope responds that she doesn't even have a mother, to which the other princesses respond they don't either. Rapunzel then asks the big question: Does everyone assume all her problems went away because a "big, strong man" showed up? Vanellope responds yes, causing the others to joyfully proclaim, "She is a princess," with Snow White (Pamela Ribon) singing at the end.
While the clip does poke fun at some of the tropes associated with the Disney princesses, it also showcases each of their personalities and gives a newcomer's opinion on some of the more questionable aspects of their backstories, without being hateful towards the characters and their films.
Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnson, Ralph Breaks the Internet arrives in theaters on Nov. 21. The film features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot, Jane Lynch, Ed O’Neill and almost every Disney princess voice recorded.
