Buy it... if you expect not only a competent extension of the unique musical style of the previous score in the franchise, but a wealth of humorous new parody applications on top of that base.

Avoid it... if you can stomach no repackaging of vintage arcade electronica regardless of the surrounding symphonic fantasy element, this score adding some obnoxious funk style to that mixture.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: (Henry Jackman/Alan Menken) Six years after Wreck-It Ralph captured audiences with its lovable homage to vintage arcade heroes, Walt Disney Pictures returns to the concept to develop the same set of characters in the internet age. In 2018's Ralph Breaks the Internet, the two lead characters at a local arcade, Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz, once again escape the boundaries of their respective games but discover the internet this time, encountering not only the familiar arcade characters of their own realm but a wealth of new concepts that cross over genres and intellectual properties with glee. The aspirational evolution of these characters and their troubled friendship holds the story together, as both eventually find peace in new adventures and old haunts. Response to the film was widely positive, in part because of Disney's decision to adapt the vast array of their storied princess and pieces of the Star Wars universe, among other concepts either within their ownership of licensed from elsewhere, into the story. Perhaps the most notable aspect of Ralph Breaks the Internet was the assembling of almost all the living original Disney princess vocal talent for the production, along with Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear, and so on. The music by Henry Jackman for the prior film was very adept at capturing the 1980's heritage of arcade game music and modern children's fantasy film scores, though a certain amount of tolerance for intentionally wacky crossover music was required to appreciate the work on album. Jackman, who has made a career out of spanning these disparate genres, once again revisits the same well of ideas, swapping out ghostwriters but retaining much of the same musical personality. Song placements remain a pivotal element of the film's appeal, with Imagine Dragons contributing the primary end credits song with a rather melancholy, more mainstream rock approach to "Zero" than might be expected. Meanwhile, the surprising highlight of the soundtrack is the full embrace of Disney heritage in both its main character song and the score's adaptation of that history. For the song dedicated to Vanellope's princess-inspired desires, Disney brought in the legendary Alan Menken to capture that lofty spirit with all his usual mannerisms. Jackman then adapts that melody into his breakneck score for the character as appropriate.
