While I included images in the first three write-ups, I could not find one that was suitable for this film that was in the Public Domain. That explains there being no picture here.
Thanks. It was initially pretty difficult to get the story right. I mean the video game and computer aspects of OTL’s Wreck-It-Ralph significantly date it to the 2010s. But if you take that away, you are left with someone who is seen as a villain who doesn’t want to be a villain and wants the chance to be a hero. That part is what I used as the base for this film. I was partly inspired by an AU WIR fanfiction that was also set in the 1940s but a greater portion of my inspiration came from the fact that WIR in our timeline was based on the Donkey Kong game which itself was based on Popeye The Sailor, King Kong, and Beauty and the Beast. So elements of all of those are in there plus even some traces of Dumbo thrown in.The moment I saw the title I was wondering how you would adapt it to the forties and you did it perfectly. I love it.
The Wreck-It-Ralph sequel might not even be titled Ralph Breaks The Internet since it isn’t a technology movie ITTL but rather about the theme about a misunderstood person being seen as the bad guy and wants to be a hero.Reading the title, I momentarily pondered how you will adapt a video game-based movie in the 1940s, a time before the type of computer we know and love was even invented.
I really hope Ralph Breaks the Internet is released post-1999.
So if I’m understanding this right, this version of WIR 2 will continue to the explore the same themes that were established in the original?The Wreck-It-Ralph sequel might not even be titled Ralph Breaks The Internet since it isn’t a technology movie ITTL but rather about the theme about a misunderstood person being seen as the bad guy and wants to be a hero.
It pushing ahead of the western genre at the time delays the peak of its popularity until the 1950s and 1960s since Westerns are in full swing then, much like IOTL. And the war will definitely impact Disney albeit probably not in the same ways as OTL.It's interesting that if you listen to the original director of the film, it was meant to take on a more classical thirties/forties esque style whereas the version made in the forties seems to be pushing a little ahead of what the genre was at the time.
This is really interesting, definitely curious to see how the war impacts Disney this time around.
Since Song is The South is not part of the Disney canon, I still have it being made in 1946 like OTL and much of the same controversy emerges. The only difference is that in this TL, I have it released on home video as a follow up to the Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Sing Along Songs release in 1986 (same as OTL), in DVD in 2000 or 2001 as part of the Gold Classic Collection, and is one of the last Disney films in any medium to be released on Blu-Ray and is a Disney Movie Club Exclusive (much like OTL Black Cauldron and 4/6 package films only getting released in 2021 because of this). Only a limited number of copies are produced on all home video formats so it’s hard to find in stores or even online retailers like Amazon and EBay (or their analogues) and they’re all essentially out of print now anyway. So while it’s not completely erased from history here, it’s the black sheep of Disney and cinema in general with most people pretending it doesn’t exist.With such a deep-cut occurring here, I'm now wondering if Song of the South is in the list, and, if it is made in more recent decades, if it will be modified to alter the controversy around it as in OTL.
I'll do my best to answer these questions
- Do any other songs appear in Home on the Range besides the title song?
- Is Wreck-It Ralph Disney’s first non-musical?
- What is Gerda’s snowman sidekick’s personality like, considering it’s very different to Olaf’s.
I like the idea of Ralph being Disney's equivalent to Popeye, and of course he would less likely to engage in violence showing the difference of philosophy between the two studios.Wreck-It-Ralph (1941):
Gulliver’s Travels is definitely still released on the same date as OTL because Snow White is still the first WDAC film to be released and I have no reason to think Fleischer wouldn’t want to duplicate that success. As far as Mr. Bug Goes to Town goes that itself was made IOTL to follow up the success of Gulliver’s Travels so the answer to its release ITTL is probably yes.I like the idea of Ralph being Disney's equivalent to Popeye, and of course he would less likely to engage in violence showing the difference of philosophy between the two studios.
Speaking of the Fleischer Brothers, did they release Gulliver's Travels and Mr. Bug goes To Town here?
