Ralph Breaks the Internet: In Memoriam

by adampkalb | created - 8 months ago | updated - 5 months ago | Public

Every princess voice actor since The Little Mermaid lived long enough to reprise their roles in Ralph Breaks the Internet, but in the last 4 decades, there are many people from the Disney princess movies and the film series of Star Wars, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, and Guardians of the Galaxy who passed too soon to see their fellow co-stars in Oh My Disney. This list is dedicated to the loving memory of everyone from those films who passed before November 5, 2018 who helped carry their stories, whether they had a little role or a big role, and get Anthony Daniels, Brad Garrett, Tim Allen, Corey Burton, Roger Craig Smith, Vin Diesel, and every princess Jodi Benson through Auli'i Cravalho get to where they are today in Wreck-it Ralph and couldn't be there to see it with the rest of the cast who was still alive at the premiere.

Stan Lee from Guardians of the Galaxy, Salo Gardner from Star Wars and Alvin Epstein from Beauty and the Beast passed in 2018, but are not listed because it happened after Ralph Breaks the Internet's premiere. Winnie the Pooh cast members will only be listed if they played their characters after Brad Garrett played Eeyore in Animated Storybook: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.
