Vanellope von Schweetz is the main female character in Wreck-It Ralph. Her voice is provided by Sarah Silverman. She is a Disney Princess who is 9 years old. The original Sugar Rush princess called herself the president when she decided she didn’t want to be one.
Here are the Facts about the movie Wreck-It Ralph in which Vanellope Von Schweetz played her role:
Vanellope von Schweetz as a Racer in the Wreck It Ralph Movie:
In spite of her reputation as the “Glitch,” Vanellope is determined to earn a place amongst the other racers, according to her official Disney profile. Despite having the spirit of a racer embedded in her code, her glitching is due to a pixelating programming mistake that occurred during the fictional creation of Sugar Rush. There is a sweet center hidden somewhere beneath her hard shell, but years of rejection have left her with a wicked sense of humor.
A Sweet Kid Character
She’s such a sweet kid! She also calls Ralph “Diaper Baby,” “Gladys,” “Admiral Underpants,” and “Major Body Odor,” though that doesn’t stop her from calling him other “affectionate” nicknames.
Inspired by the Japanese Animes
In anime circles, Vanellope’s character design is referred to as chibi (which is Japanese slang for “little child”). Characters in this style are characterized by smaller limbs and oversized heads, making them appear childlike. Aside from this, Vanellope has hair and facial features that make her seem like a younger version of Sarah Silverman, who is her voice actor.
Voice Dubbed by Sarah Silverman
In the 2011 live-action Disney film, The Muppets, Sarah Silverman played a restaurant greeter at Mel’s Drive-In. Besides Amy Adams, the film also stars Rachel Weisz, who starred in Enchanted in 2007.
Why Vanellope is not Official Disney Princess
Despite being revealed at the end of the film to be a princess, Vanellope is not an official Disney Princess. What makes her unofficial? According to the story, she abdicated her role as princess, electing to be president instead.
What is Vanellope Real Age?
Vanellope’s young age is another reason for her exclusion. How old is she? On this point, there is some confusion. Vanellope is twelve years old, according to Executive Producer John Lasseter. According to Sarah Silverman and co-writer Rich Moore, she is only nine years old.
How Vanellope Become a Royal Racer:
Early concept drawings showed that Vanellope originally had a white helmet with a golden crown on the side, rather than the teal and white jumpsuit seen on the side of the Sugar Rush game cabinet. A grayish-green tone was planned for Vanellope’s skin at one point, but it was quickly realized that she would look like a zombie.
She was also nominated for a prestigious film award in addition to being a champion racer. Vanellope (and her animator Tony Smeed) were nominated for Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Feature Motion Picture at the 2012 Visual Effects Society Awards. Her only competition was Merida from Brave, another Disney princess.
