There are cartoons that should really be called animated movies. Aside from being suitable for children, they were also designed with the adult audience in mind. One of those movies is Wreck-It Ralph, a successful Disney franchise whose second instalment Ralph Breaks the Internet has officially hit the theatres worldwide today.
It is not the first time that a successful movie series is joining forces with a reputable gaming franchise. This only seems more natural when the main protagonist of the movie is actually a video game character. Now, it seems that a partnership has been made between Epic Games and Disney.
According to Reddit users, Ralph has already made an appearance in Fortnite, arguably the most successful Battle Royale game currently on the market. It was a brief cameo, but an effective one. The users who were around the cinema located in the Risky Reels long enough to notice which movie is playing noticed Ralph on the screen.
It seems that we only have that single video at this moment, but it is more enough to start the rumours about the potential Ralph-based event in Fortnite. It would only be a natural move since the movie made numerous homages to the culture of video gaming. We have seen M. Bison, Dr. Eggman, Bowser, and many other fan favourite characters. Now is the perfect time for the video game world to return the favour.
Naturally, there are probably economic reasons for both Disney and Epic for this move, but lovers of both franchises will undoubtedly be thrilled with the potential partnership. It remains to be seen what video gaming stars will appear in both the movie sequel and Fortnite. We also do not have any details about the event that will probably occur soon as we assume it was timed to follow the worldwide release of the film.
It seems that Ralph Breaks the Internet hasn’t forgotten Fortnite either. In fact, there are more than one nods to this BR title in the movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, we suggest hitting the movies until Epic announces more details about the potential event involving Ralph.
