‘It was a massive buzz to be asked to be part of this, I loved the first movie [Wreck-It Ralph],’ said Blake about the role.

He added: ‘Whilst I only have a few lines in the film, I’m positive movie goers will agree they are the heart and soul of the movie.’

In Ralph Breaks The Internet, video game ‘bad guy’ Ralph (John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) travel though the internet in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush.
