Disney Animation shared to a crowd of eager Disney fans the first footage from "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" on Friday at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

A sequel to the video game-inspired "Wreck-It Ralph," the second movie will be released in 2018.

This time, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) leave the video game world behind and enter the internet. As the two venture around the unfamiliar world, they encounter a new character named Yesss, voiced by Taraji P. Henson. Yesss is the head of trending website Buzzaholic.

Silverman joined Disney Animation/Pixar head John Lasseter on stage to present previously unseen footage of the movie.

In the clip, Vanellope wanders off and ends up in a room full of Disney princesses — from Snow White and Belle to Tiana and Moana. The original voice actresses reprised their roles. What follows are dozens of quips and references to the Disney princess trope. Snow White asks Vanellope if she’s ever been poisoned. Belle and Rapunzel ask if she has ever been imprisoned, while Vanellope looks on in horror.

"Who would do such a thing?" she asks.

It's a fun exchange.

The segment was part of the Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios presentation, which also highlighted "The Incredibles 2," "Toy Story 4" and "Coco."

"Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" will hit theaters Nov. 21, 2018.
