    • 14 November 2018, Jesse Hassenger, AV Club Disney goes viral with an ambitious, overstuffed Wreck-It Ralph sequel[1]
      Still, the movie manages to locate some gentle satire in our culture’s love-hate relationship with the internet.

Henson), and the movie is savvy about how accidental spikes in fame can turn into cynical algorithm manipulation.
