Disney Accused Of Whitewashing Princess Tiana And Pocahontas In 'Wreck It Ralph 2'

Last week, Entertainment Weekly shared exclusive images of the film Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. 

The film features a sequence with  Disney princesses having a sleepover with leader character, Vanellope.

However, Princess Tiana and Pocahontas seem as depicted lighter than they are shown in their own films and prior illustrations.

Twitter was not having it.

The film will be released in theaters this November, featuring the voices of Sarah Silverman, John C. Reilly, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot and more.

Here’s the official description: Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”).
