Wreck-It Ralph Sequel Confirmed for 2018
Disney has recently announced both the name and the release date of Wreck-It Ralph’s anticipated sequel. Titled “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2”, the follow up to the hit videogame-inspired CG adventure is penciled in for a March 9, 2018 debut. The official title was revealed by he Walt Disney Studios head of distribution Dave Hollis at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. He also confirmed that voice stars Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer are returning.
Director Rich Moore will also be returning, along with one of the original’s writers Phil Johnston, who is now serving as co-director. Clark Spencer will also be back on board as producer. All three have recently worked together on the Oscar-winning Disney film Zootopia.
“To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” said Moore. “Our production team has been hard at work designing a world that takes something we all think we know – the internet – but shows it in a whole new, imaginative way.”
Johnston added: “We’re so excited to be working with Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz, Fix-It Felix and Sergeant Calhoun again, and we have new characters we look forward to unveiling. At the center of this film, as in the first one, is the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope, two once-outcasts, who in each other, found true friendship.”
