Vanellope Meets All The Disney Princesses in First Pic From 'Wreck-It Ralph 2'!

Vanellope von Schweetz finally meets the Disney Princesses!

The first pic of this epic meeting debuted today (via USA Today) and the expressions on the official Disney Princess lineup is priceless!

In the clip from Wreck-It Ralph of this moment, which was presented at the 2017 D23 expo, Ralph and Vanellope find themselves transported to the most magical place on the internet: OhMyDisney.com, where Vanellope decides to sneak into a dressing room full of Disney Princesses – to mess with them.

When the Princesses discover the tiny intruder, they prepare to attack. Mulan pulls out her sword, Merida grabs her bow, and Cinderella turns her glass slipper into a shiv. In order to save her skin, Vanellope tells the Princesses that she, too, is a Princess — which she is!

The Princesses (and their original voice actresses) will return for the film: Frozen‘s Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel), Tangled‘s Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), Brave‘s Merida (Kelly MacDonald), The Princess and the Frog‘s Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), Pocahontas (Irene Bedard), Aladdin‘s Jasmine (Linda Larkin), Mulan (Ming-Na Wen), Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle (Paige O’Hara), and The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel (Jodi Benson).

Wreck-It Ralph: Ralph Breaks The Internet hits theaters in November.

Katherine McNamara, Monique Coleman and Brooklyn & Bailey All Celebrate Dream Big Princess Campaign

Katherine McNamara, Monique Coleman and Brooklyn & Bailey hold up signs around them, celebrating the new Dream Big Princess campaign.

If you’ve watched Disney Channel, you’ve probably seen bits and pieces of the campaign, which celebrates inspiring stories from around the world to encourage kids everywhere to dream big.

To celebrate the campaign even more, Disney worked with 19 female photographers from around the world to create a series of empowering images showcasing real-world girls and women, as part of the initiative and taps into the power of Disney Princess stories to inspire kids.

The photographs shared online will go on to help raise funds for Girl Up.

From now until October 11th, Disney Worldwide Services will donate US $1 for any public post of a photo using #DreamBigPrincess or like of such a post on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, for a minimum donation of US $500,000 and a maximum of US $1 million.

That’s so great!

JJJ spoke to two of the photographers — Cristina Mittermeier and Kate Parker — about their own photographs in the collection.

Cristina relates to Moana, who she describes as “[having] an unwavering determination to protect and celebrate her culture. She follows an innate calling to decide for herself who she wants to be.”

Kate adds, “Dreaming big means dreaming without limits of any kind. Dreaming of a goal and creating the opportunity to invest 100 percent of yourself into that goal to achieve it.”

Her role model? Belle, of course.

“Belle is ambitious. She realizes that knowledge is her way to the larger life she is dreaming of and doesn’t allow anyone’s opinions affect her. She didn’t change to please anyone and I love that.”

Disney's Princess Tiana Talks About How 'Almost There' Is The Most Inspiring Song Ever

Disney's Princess Tiana Talks About How 'Almost There' Is The Most Inspiring Song Ever

If you’re as obsessed with Disney’s The Princess and the Frog as JJJ is (see here and here for the proof), you know that “Almost There” is the stand out song from the film.

Anika Noni Rose, who voiced the beautiful Tiana, has opened up about the importance track and how she identified with the song.

“The song, to me, really was all of what the movie was and all of what my life was,” she shared with LA Times.

“I felt like I knew this girl. I grew up in a small town without anybody who did the thing that I wanted to do. Where a guidance counselor told me maybe I should learn a trade. I understood being somewhere where nobody else understood what it was I wanted to do,” Anika continued, revealing her real connection with Tiana.

Anika continued, stressing how the song still makes her feel and how it can inspire every little kid everywhere.

“There are two ways to take that song,” she says. “You can be almost there and be sad about it. Or you can be almost there and find the joy in the journey, and the joy in the steps that you have taken, and the joy in how far you have gone.”

“Sometimes you’re not quite touching it yet, but the fact that you have gotten yourself until the point that you are almost there means that you only have a couple more steps to go. Those steps may be be years or days or minutes and you never know. But there is a joy to knowing you’re going to do it.”
