In a scene from Wreck-It Ralph 2 described by Comicbook.com's Brandon Davis, the Princesses make their hilarious cameo:
"[New Character] Yesss (played by Empire's Taraji P. Henson) talks to Ralph and Penelope and asks if they are enjoying the Internet. He says, "Yes," and she thinks he is saying her name. Once that is cleared up, Ralph reveals he wants to go viral. Yesss discusses how to pull it off, and it's all about like-minded humans and appealing to them.
The site which appeals to everyone is ohmydisney.com, and the animation features Iron Man, Star Wars, Tinkerbell, and more Disney characters. In a Marvel Yourself booth, people turn into Iron Man and Stan Lee. Elsewhere, people push Buzz Lightyear's buttons. A little girl plays with Zoom-Zooms until Stormtroopers escort the Disney princesses by. The crowd goes wild. Yesss insists they cannot mess with the princesses. Penelope wants to go mess with them anyway.
Inside the room, the Disney princesses are shocked to see Penelope. They all draw weapons -- Moana, Cinderella, Repunzel, Jasmine, Snow White, Ariel and more are ready to go. They question how she is a princess and gleefully tell horror stories of their origins. They call her a princess when they realize her life was great until a big strong man showed up. A Batman style transitions takes the clip to girls having a slumber party. Ariel starts singing about wearing a shirt for the first time and the princesses beg her to stop.
Penelope calls the princesses cool because they're as messed up as anyone. Jasmine reveals she is allergic to cats despite hanging around a tiger all the time. C-3PO eventually enters and tells them they have five minutes. They call him R2-D2, then BB-8. He says he longs for the days of Captain Solo. Penelope is happy to have met them and prepares to leave."
