==Plot==
It was confirmed in November 2012 that Disney had began development on a live-action/animation hybrid film where humans and Disney characters co-exist in peace. Marsh and Krisel wrote a script with Vanellope von Schweetz and Woody as rivals, which in 2015 turned out disastrous, and Marsh and Krisel better-reflected the tone. Animation services were provided by [[Reel FX Creative Studios|Reel FX Creative Studios.]] The film's musical score is composed by [[Hans Zimmer]].
 
 
Humans and Disney characters co-exist in harmony in Disneyville, the most magical star in the sky. Mayor Lawrence Pierce and his [[adviser]], Mr. Ziploc the [[plastic]] [[bowl]] take Vanellope von Schweetz and her pet [[iguana]] Iggy on a history tour and introduce them to Judy Hopps, Hank, Woody, Agent P, and the Little Green Men. When they build shelter for Woody, Vanellope tells them her tragic backstory of when [[Poaching|poachers]] arrested her former friend Banana; Vanellope has been wanting to make her own family ever since.
   
  +
They are invited to visit to the Hader's Kingdom, much to Woody's disgruntlement since he thinks Disneyville is not real. King Marcus, the ruler of the Hader's Kingdom, greets the gang. After introducing them to his son, Conrad, they spy on Conrad's sister Sally's singing about longing to marry her brother. Vanellope comforts Sally and vows to help her. This outrages Woody, who, believing Sally to be too young to marry, admonishes the family for [[false advertising]] and tries to beat the answer out of Vanellope, but they both fall into a hole that leads them to Hand-Drawn Land.
The first film from [[Walt Disney Wonder Studios]], the film was released theatrically in the United States on January 9, 2017 by [[Walt Disney Pictures]] to critical and commercial success, grossing $984 million against its $179 million budget. It has a very rare [[list of films with a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes|100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes]], and was nominated for five [[Academy Award]]s including [[Academy Award for Best Original Song|Best Original Song]] for "''Hello, Conrad''". In December 2020, the film was added to the [[National Film Registry]] by the [[Library of Congress]] for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Now animated in [[traditional animation]], Vanellope and Woody have a short argument that ends with Woody revealing he lost his neighbor to a [[dragon]]. Connecting this with the day she lost Banana, she comforts him with a hug. They are then recruited by a [[Espionage|super spy]] and [[Shapeshifting|shapeshifter]] named Gadget to retrieve an [[emerald]] from a murderous couple named Ginny and Alan. Gadget, Vanellope, and a reformed Woody steal the emerald and escape from Ginny and Alan. Gadget returns Vanellope and Woody to Disneyville, where they revert to their [[Computer animation|computer-generated]] selves.
The film's success led to several ''Disney In The House'' TV shows, including ''[[Disney In The House]]'', ''[[Disney Detectives]]'', and ''[[Vanellope's World]]''. It also spawned eight sequels: [[Disney In The House: 4th Of July|''Disney In The House: 4th Of July'']], [[Disney In The House: Christmas|''Disney In The House: Christmas'']], [[Disney In The House: Wild Wild West|''Disney In The House: Wild Wild West'']], [[Disney In The House: Off To Adventure Camp|''Disney In The House: Off To Adventure Camp'']], [[Disney In The House: Time Travel|''Disney In The House: Time Travel'']], [[Disney In The House: Return To Adventure Camp|''Disney In The House: Return To Adventure Camp'']], [[Disney In The House: World Animals|''Disney In The House: World Animals'']], and [[Disney In The House: Oceans|''Disney In The House: Oceans'']] on July 4, 2017, December 26, 2017, December 25, 2018, March 3, 2019, June 13, 2019, September 23, 2019, December 23, 2019, and February 25, 2020.

Meanwhile, Sally and Conrad's date is successful, but they, along with Lawrence, Judy, Hank, Mr. Ziploc, Agent P, Iggy, and the Little Green Men are captured by Banana, who has escaped jail. Banana confronts Vanellope and Woody and lets the poachers arrest Vanellope as revenge for abandoning him when he was taken away. In jail, Vanellope learns from a talking [[skeleton]] named Skull Housetall that the dragon is headed for the Hader's Kingdom. Woody frees Vanellope from jail. Back at the Hader's Kingdom, Vanellope and Woody confront Banana and convince him to help them and prove he is still a good banana at heart.
== Plot ==
 
Humans and Disney characters co-exist in harmony in Disneyville, the most magical star in the sky. Mayor Lawrence Pierce and Mr. Ziploc take Vanellope von Schweetz and her pet iguana Iggy on a history tour and introduce them to Judy Hopps, Hank, Woody, Agent P, and the Little Green Men. When they build shelter for Woody, Vanellope tells them her sad backstory of when poachers killed her friend Banana; Vanellope has been wanting to make her own family ever since. A knight named Murray hitches them on a ride to the Hader's Kingdom.
 
   
  +
The dragon attacks the Hader's Kingdom. Banana sets the family free, and using Sally and Conrad as bait, they lure the dragon out of the Hader's Kingdom. The poachers block their path, intending to put Vanellope back in jail, but they are saved by the arrival of Judy and Hank. When they approach the kingdom's [[viaduct]], which crumbles underneath the dragon's weight, Sally and Banana fall over the edge, with Vanellope holding onto them. Knowing Vanellope can not save them both in time, Banana sacrifices himself, allowing Vanellope to save Sally. As the family reunites, Banana's death reveals that he was just a normal banana on the inside. The dragon takes Banana into the sky and departs.
King Marcus, the ruler of the Hader's Kingdom, greets the gang. After introducing them to his son, Conrad, they spy on Conrad's sister Sally's singing about longing to marry her brother. Vanellope comforts her by saying Conrad would never abandon her, but Woody admonishes Vanellope for lying to her family and confesses that he has not been anywhere since a dragon killed his neighbor. Woody finally agrees to help Sally marry Conrad. After the successful date at the kingdom's pizza place, the group helps a spy named Agent Gadget retrieve three gems out of the hands of a murderous outlaw couple named Ginny and Alan.
 
   
  +
With Disneyville saved, Sally and Conrad finally share a kiss and get married, and the viaduct is rebuilt three days later. Vanellope, Woody, Judy, Hank, Lawrence, Mr. Ziploc, and Iggy bid a heartfelt farewell to Sally, Conrad, and Marcus, while Agent P and the Little Green Men stay in the Hader's Kingdom. When Vanellope and her friends return home, they become a family.
By the time they arrive at Ginny and Alan's lair, the bodyguard, Mr. Z, kidnaps Sally. At the moment Vanellope and Conrad save her, the dragon chases them, but they narrowly escape when the dragon gets caught on a chandelier. Conrad takes Sally for a rowboat ride across a lagoon, and the two kiss. While looking for a train back to the Hader's Kingdom, Vanellope comes across a ghost of Banana that reveals that his plan was to lure her to the poachers to be arrested, as revenge for abandoning him when the poachers killed him. After a few pleas from her next-door neighbor Marka, Vanellope turns herself in to the poachers and becomes despondent. Shortly after being put in jail, a skeleton named Skull Housetall informs Vanellope that the dragon is headed for the Hader's Kingdom. Realizing Ghost Banana intended to destroy Disneyville all along, Vanellope escapes jail, with help from Judy. Vanellope, Judy, Hank, Woody, Sally, Conrad, Gadget, Mr. Ziploc, Lawrence, Iggy, Agent P, and the Little Green Men return to the Hader's Kingdom to tell Marcus the situation.
 
   
 
==Cast ==
The dragon arrives at that moment, under Ghost Banana's commands. Despite failing to strike the dragon, she uses Aladdin's magic lamp to trap Ghost Banana forever. Using Sally as bait, Vanellope and Gadget lure the dragon to his death. The bridge crumbles, and Vanellope grabs the rope Sally and Gadget are holding. Gadget resigns himself to his fate, lets go of the rope to sacrifice himself, and dies, giving Vanellope the advantage to save Sally. Three days after Conrad and Sally finally marry, the bridge is rebuilt, and Vanellope and the gang head home. Judy, Hank, Mr. Ziploc, and Lawrence move in with Iggy, and Marka reconciles with Vanellope. The film ends with everyone in Disneyville singing a reprise of "''We Are Family''", and with Vanellope shouting with excitement as the iris closes on her.

Produced by Walt Disney Wonder Studios as its first film, Disney In The House: Introduction was released theatrically in the United States on October 21, 2016 by Walt Disney Pictures. It grossed $585 million worldwide against its $150 million budget and was universally acclaimed by critics for its heartwarming story, the performances of Silverman, Hanks, Fanning, and Laramore, the CGI animation on the Disney characters, and Hans Zimmer and John Powell's musical score. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Picture.

Plot

Humans and Disney characters co-exist in harmony in Disneyville, the most magical star in the sky. Mayor Lawrence Pierce and his adviser, Mr. Ziploc the plastic bowl take Vanellope von Schweetz and her pet iguana Iggy on a history tour and introduce them to Judy Hopps, Hank, Woody, Agent P, and the Little Green Men. When they build shelter for Woody, Vanellope tells them her tragic backstory of when poachers arrested her former friend Banana; Vanellope has been wanting to make her own family ever since.

They are invited to visit to the Hader's Kingdom, much to Woody's disgruntlement since he thinks Disneyville is not real. King Marcus, the ruler of the Hader's Kingdom, greets the gang. After introducing them to his son, Conrad, they spy on Conrad's sister Sally's singing about longing to marry her brother. Vanellope comforts Sally and vows to help her. This outrages Woody, who, believing Sally to be too young to marry, admonishes the family for false advertising and tries to beat the answer out of Vanellope, but they both fall into a hole that leads them to Hand-Drawn Land.

Now animated in traditional animation, Vanellope and Woody have a short argument that ends with Woody revealing he lost his neighbor to a dragon. Connecting this with the day she lost Banana, she comforts him with a hug. They are then recruited by a super spy and shapeshifter named Gadget to retrieve an emerald from a murderous couple named Ginny and Alan. Gadget, Vanellope, and a reformed Woody steal the emerald and escape from Ginny and Alan. Gadget returns Vanellope and Woody to Disneyville, where they revert to their computer-generated selves.

Meanwhile, Sally and Conrad's date is successful, but they, along with Lawrence, Judy, Hank, Mr. Ziploc, Agent P, Iggy, and the Little Green Men are captured by Banana, who has escaped jail. Banana confronts Vanellope and Woody and lets the poachers arrest Vanellope as revenge for abandoning him when he was taken away. In jail, Vanellope learns from a talking skeleton named Skull Housetall that the dragon is headed for the Hader's Kingdom. Woody frees Vanellope from jail. Back at the Hader's Kingdom, Vanellope and Woody confront Banana and convince him to help them and prove he is still a good banana at heart.

The dragon attacks the Hader's Kingdom. Banana sets the family free, and using Sally and Conrad as bait, they lure the dragon out of the Hader's Kingdom. The poachers block their path, intending to put Vanellope back in jail, but they are saved by the arrival of Judy and Hank. When they approach the kingdom's viaduct, which crumbles underneath the dragon's weight, Sally and Banana fall over the edge, with Vanellope holding onto them. Knowing Vanellope can not save them both in time, Banana sacrifices himself, allowing Vanellope to save Sally. As the family reunites, Banana's death reveals that he was just a normal banana on the inside. The dragon takes Banana into the sky and departs.

With Disneyville saved, Sally and Conrad finally share a kiss and get married, and the viaduct is rebuilt three days later. Vanellope, Woody, Judy, Hank, Lawrence, Mr. Ziploc, and Iggy bid a heartfelt farewell to Sally, Conrad, and Marcus, while Agent P and the Little Green Men stay in the Hader's Kingdom. When Vanellope and her friends return home, they become a family.
