How We Broke the Internet
The producers wanted to expand the idea of the arcade world. Ralph still had more to grow as he learns to love himself and his journey into the Internet is a way for him to do so. In their research they were able to establish what the Internet looks like. Creating a visual reference of what the Internet looks like, building on older versions to crate new ones.
Netizers, Net Users
Net users are avatars of users being controlled with a mouse almost like robots. While the netizers are part of the Internet working and living on the websites. We get to see mor of the difference between these types of characters.
We see the different versions of this search engine from inception until what was used on the film.

This helped them crate the visuals of the cara moving through the track in the race sequence. We get to see Shank come to life as Gal Gaddot came into the picture.
Here we see the creating of BuzzTube similar to YouTube where Ralph was getting likes from creating random videos. We also see the creation of Yesss which is like a salesperson for the site. We also see the dark side of the Internet with the bad comments and trolling.
This is the place where most of the cameos take place. From basically every single Disney movie ever made. This is also where the iconic scene with all the Disney Princesses takes place.
The creators used the idea of Ralph slowly becoming a monster to personify it to create a super Villain: a giant Ralph made out of thousands of Ralph’s. Difficulties came from creating the facial expressions to portray the giant Ralph emotions.
The final the goodbye scene was emotional because it had to show that things change but true friendship can survive that change. This was one of the biggest lessons Ralph learned during his growth.
