Disney In The House was released in the United States on June 3, 2022, after facing delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film received critical acclaim and grossed $353 million worldwide against a $50 million budget. Disney In The House also won the first-ever Flamingo Award for Best Animated Movie and the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Plot

In New York City, Vanellope von Schweetz heads to the Picker's Circus and watches the star attraction, the Great Master. He introduces an anthropomorphic teddy bear named Teddy, who is scared of performing and feels she doesn't belong in the Picker Circus. This further causes her to accidentally wreck the show. The Great Master hires Vanellope to do a magic trick. Teddy and Vanellope disappear and end up in the basement. After Teddy explains the circus took her away from her parents, Dianne and Davidson, and her home in Teddy Bear Mountain, Vanellope promises to take her home.

Meanwhile, an aggressive and single-minded security guard named Phil Franco plots to take Teddy and Vanellope to him at the top of Teddy Bear Mountain, but is overtaken by his popular and famous rival, Judy Hopps. They hop on board the Teddy Bear Mountain Express, where Judy finds them. Onboard the train, they meet Hank, a red octopus who is setting out to be the first octopus to climb a mountain. Upon reaching Teddy Bear Mountain, Vanellope, Judy, and Hank agree to a deal; they take Teddy to see her parents under the condition that Judy escort them home afterwards.

As Vanellope, Judy, Hank, and Teddy head towards the top of Teddy Bear Mountain (where Phil is plotting to arrest Vanellope for stealing Teddy) they find crows gathering apples for their winter hibernation supply. They fight off the crows and gain an apple to feed Teddy. Back at the Picker's Circus, Phil discovers that Vanellope took Teddy to Teddy Bear Mountain and sets out to arrest her, believing her to have "bear-napped" Teddy. That night, Judy receives a call from the Great Master that New York has assumed Vanellope to be a bear-napper and Teddy's disappearance is jeopardizing the Picker's Circus' future and his career. Judy decides the safest thing to do is bring Teddy back to the Picker's Circus, but, upon finding out that the deal was a trick to send Vanellope to jail, Vanellope disagrees and rejects Judy.

The next morning, Vanellope and Teddy reach the top of Teddy Bear Mountain, where Teddy reunites with her parents. At the same time, however, Phil arrives, captures Teddy and her parents, and arrests Vanellope. Judy, with the assistance of Hank, who had nothing to do with Vanellope and Judy's argument, rescues Vanellope, Teddy, Davidson, and Dianne, having had a change of heart. When Judy apologizes to Vanellope and explains what she meant, Vanellope pieces together Phil's plan: Phil will keep teddy bears for himself and ensure the Picker Circus' closure comes to pass. After Vanellope, Judy, Hank, and the Teddy Bears jump out of the helicopter with parachutes, Woody and the Aliens arrive in their helicopter. Phil grabs Vanellope, but loses his grip and falls into a pond.

Upon returning to the Picker's Circus, they return the Teddy Bears to the Great Master and trick Phil into revealing his plot. With the Picker's Circus' glory and the Great Master's career restored, Phil is subdued by Teddy and subsequently arrested, while the crowd praises Vanellope as a hero. Teddy gives Vanellope a farewell hug, and Teddy and her parents join the circus. Judy and Hank come to live with Vanellope, Woody, and the Aliens. At the park, Teddy reunites with Vanellope, with the Great Master revealing her parents have joined his act.
