It's been six years since we got to see 8-bit baddie Wreck-It-Ralph (John C. Reilly) and glitch racer Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) become besties in 2012's ode to nostalgia gaming and friendship, Wreck-It Ralph.

Happily, their story continues in the Walt Disney Animation's sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet, out in theaters on November 21. The latest installment picks up several years later, with Vanellope's existence in jeopardy when her Sugar Rush game is damaged. It needs a new part that can only be found on eBay, so Ralph and Vanellope go out to the wild Internet to save the game, and her. But the experience shakes up their comfort zones, and their even their friendship.

SYFY WIRE's Tara Bennett sat down with Reilly, Silverman, Taraji P. Henson (who voices Internet viral expert Yesss) and directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore to talk about how the sequel took shape.

In particular, they talk about the unexpected musical aspects of this movie, including a brand-new Alan Menken song for Vanellope (and Gal Gadot's Shank) called "A Place Called Slaughter Race." And Reilly finally gets his own song after two movies of trying to find the right one (hint: it was not "Pac-Man Fever").

(Warning: If you want to go in completely blank for the sequel, bookmark this for a later watch.)
