A sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, one of the best video game-based movies ever released, is officially in the works! Disney today announced that Rich Moore, director of the first film, will return alongside Phil Johnston, co-writer of the films, to bring Wreck-It Ralph 2 to life!
In Disney’s announcement, Rich Moore shared some insight on what we can expect from the second film:
“From the moment we started working on the first ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters. This time, Ralph’s wrecking wreaks havoc on the Web—as only he can do. Characters we loved in the first film are back and we are ecstatic to be working with them—and the actors who voice them—once again.”
Moore’s partner Phil Johnston also commented on the film’s setting, saying:
“The world of the internet is the perfect place to send Ralph and Vanellope. The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”
Good news: we won’t have to wait too long to see Ralph and Vanellope again: the sequel is set to release on March 9th, 2018!
