I received an all expense paid trip from Disney to attend the #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent at Walt Disney Animation Studios. The opinions expressed here are my own and I received no monetary compensation.
Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters on November 21st and we already have our tickets! Back in August, while in LA for the Christopher Robin premiere, I had the opportunity to attend a press junket for Ralph Breaks the Internet at Walt Disney Animation Studios. I got the scoop on the “Oh My Disney” princess sequence that everyone is looking forward to seeing in the film. We heard from co-writer Pamela Ribon about the inspiration for the scene, and Ami Thompson (Art Director, characters) and Kira Lehtomaki (Head of Animation) about bringing these beloved characters into the world of the internet.
The “Oh My Disney” sequence originated with Ribon just creatively writing. She never imagined that the scene would actually make it into the film. She also giddily shared that she had the opportunity to voice Snow White int he film. Bringing Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Tiana, Mulan, Merida, Rapunzel, Anna, Elsa, Pocahontas, Moana, Cinderella, Snow White, and Aurora into the film was quite the undertaking. It was a challenge to design the princesses to belong in the same world. Mark Henn, the original animator for many of these characters, was brought on board for this task.
One of my favorite things about the “Oh My Disney” sequence are the comfy clothes and graphic shirts that the princesses wear. The shirt designs are perfectly personalized for each princess. Cinderella’s shirt says “G2G” (or “Got to Go”) on it and Ariel’s shirt lists all the things she collects from the human world. Because I can never pass up a crafting opportunity, I created an Anna “finish each other’s sandwiches” shirt inspired by the film. Keep on reading for the tutorial!
Iron-On Vinyl (beige, red, green, black glitter)
Step 1: Go to my “finish each other’s sandwiches” project on Cricut Design Space. You can adjust your graphic size to fit your shirt. This graphic is set to 6″ wide, which is perfect for a girl size S tank.
Step 2: Click “make it” and feed the corresponding heat transfer vinyl color into your machine on a standard grip mat, shiny side down. Make sure to click on “mirror” before making your cut. Continue making cuts until you have all of your pieces.
Step 3: Weed your images, removing any excess vinyl that you won’t be ironing on to the shirt.
Step 4: Use the Cricut EasyPress to apply each layer of iron-on vinyl to the shirt separately. Read the EasyPress instructions for heat settings.
Step 5: Wear your new shirt to the Ralph Breaks the Internet movie! My friend Britni of Play Party Plan crafted up shirts for Elsa, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Moana and my pal Karen of Desert Chica made a Belle inspired shirt. Check them out!
Ralph Breaks the Internet will hit theaters on November 21, 2018!
