The amazing release numbers are now second only as a record for Thanksgiving debut to another Disney movie, Frozen, which earned a blasting almost $94 million on its first five days.

While these numbers do sound amazing, it’s important to keep in mind that this movie is carrying on its back a big $175 million budget and that I order to be truly successful it is crucial it makes that number back and overpass it by far So the movie better keep the big numbers coming up, because it will need them.

The movie was not the only sequel this Thanksgiving weekend, the second place in the box office was with MGM and New Line’s Creed II.

Even though the first Creed was a success and the sequel had a considerable amount of people excited, the movie didn’t even manage to make half of what Ralph Breaks The internet made.

While the original movie was a sort of tribute to the arcade gaming era, and how the culture was back then, sorta like a place where time never passed.

But not only the amazing parts of the internet, we all know not all that glitters is gold, and that is much more real on the internet, where you can get into all sorts of troubles if you’re not really careful.

Even though it is set in a modern ambient, it relies a lot upon the nostalgic effect to get into your feelings. And sometimes people may find themselves just enjoying the memorabilia in the scene rather than the story itself.

It is also amazing to see just how much power Disney has in the modern world, and how big of an impact it is available to make on today’s world.
