Disney itself gave audiences a glimpse of modern, more casual versions of the lead female characters from some of its hits in August when it unveiled a photo from the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet, that showed many of them lounging around in — gasp! — yoga pants and T-shirts.
