Disney Dimensions was released theatrically on December 15, 2023 as the first Olaramore04 film to ever be released in 3-D. It became the fourth highest-grossing film of 2023 and the highest-grossing animated crossover film of all-time, earning $900 million worldwide against its $150 million budget at the box office. The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised the musical score, animation, voice acting, crossover scenes, and humor, although some were divided on the overuse of product placement.

Plot

Arriving on the planet Fricassee World in the center of the Disney worlds, Cygnet Fricassee (Paul Rudd) and his robot minion H-X (Joel McHale) seek the Foundation Elements, the cornerstones of time and space itself, in a bid to merge the dimensions into one under his control. When H-X voices his doubts of Fricassee's plans (as it is too deadly and dangerous to safely harness the Elements), Fricassee decides he does not need H-X anymore, and banishes him to the planet Reptune. He opens vortexes to the worlds, damaging the boundaries between them and causing them to merge and characters to be displaced.

When Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), Kevin Flynn (Jim Hanks), and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) are pulled into vortexes (each in possession of one of the Elements), Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly), Sam Flynn (Bruce Willis), and Elsa (Idina Menzel) all jump in after them. Along the way, they gather the five keystones while traveling to the worlds Alice In Wonderland, Hannah Montana, Fantasia, The Chronicles of Narnia, Cars, and The Nightmare Before Christmas, meeting heroes and fighting enemies that Fricassee has recruited.

When Ralph, Sam, and Elsa meet H-X, he directs them to the Mystery Dimension (which is just the real world) where they meet Owen Laramore, a Disney fan. However, when they reach Fricassee World's Foundation Prime, H-X is ambushed and fatefully killed, and Fricassee creates the Foundation of all Dimensions (which is just of purple square). Their friends are turned into a mutant called the Tri. Fearing another failure could lead to them being transformed into a similar mutant, the villains bail out on Fricassee. Fricassee grows the Tri into a giant and gives them the order to destroy the heroes and their worlds.

Ralph, Sam, and Elsa free Vanellope, Kevin, and Kristoff from the spell and destroy the piece controlling them. The three recruit the heroes they met to their cause. While Owen, Mickey Mouse (Bret Iwan) and H-X (who is revived) work on a plan to rap Fricassee in a rift loop, Ralph, Sam, and Elsa return to Foundation Prime, fighting Fricassee along the way. Ralph destroys the Foundation of all Dimensions, angering Fricassee, who grows into enormous size, before being sucked into a rift loop. Using a special device that Mickey, Owen, and H-X designed, Ralph, Sam, and Elsa seal him into an endless prison, saving the Disney multi-verse. Back on Reptune, the dimension residents cheer for the trio and celebrate their differences.
