The 2012 animated smash Wreck-It Ralph is finally getting a sequel, as Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 hits the silver screen March 9, 2018. The news was announced at CinemaCon. Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch are among the actors who are returning to the roster with leads John C. Reilly (Ralph) and Sarah Silverman (Vanellope).
The project also reteams the film’s original director Rich Moore and scribe Phil Johnston to the project (both Moore and Johnston collaborated on last year’s Disney hit Zootopia).
Wreck-It Ralph was a loving homage to 8-bit gaming, and now its sequel is taking video games to an entirely different level. “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.”
The Oscar nominated film was named Best Animated Feature by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, and expectations are definitely high with Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.
Are you excited for the sequel, or was one film dealing with Ralph’s gaming universe enough? Feel free to comment below!
