Big news from Disney today! Wreck-It-Ralph is getting a sequel!!

Not that we had any doubt in our minds but Variety says Disney made it official today. They’ve given the video game bonanza a release date of March 9, 2018. That’s all we know so far except from the concept art Disney posted it looks like the team will be taking on major online corporations. I’ll update if we find out more.

I just have one question – WHERE’S WALL-E 2?

WALL-E

[UPDATE] From D23.com:

The filmmakers and star of Wreck-It Ralph—director Rich Moore (Zootopia, The Simpsons), producer Clark Spencer (Zootopia, Bolt), director/writer Phil Johnston (writer, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, Cedar Rapids), and actor John C. Reilly broke the good news this morning on Facebook Live. Reilly, who again lends his voice to the bad-guy-turned-good, Ralph, will be joined by Sarah Silverman as she reprises the role of Vanellope von Schweetz, the girl with the game-winning glitch.

Moore shared that he’s been developing the untitled sequel since soon after Wreck-It Ralph’s November 2012 opening. “From the moment we started working on the first Wreck-It Ralph, we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” he said—before revealing that Ralph will be venturing beyond the arcade in the new film. “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.”

“The world of the Internet is the perfect place to send Ralph and Vanellope,” Johnston said. “The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”

    I enjoyed Wreck It Ralph; it was a fun, cute movie that kind of underused some it’s cameos but what can you do. If they’re centering a plot around the Internet it makes me wonder if there’s going to be some delving into the dark net or those bizarre “art” websites that you find if you scroll through a google search long enough.

    Honestly, I never really cared for Wreck-It Ralph. I didn’t even get the nostalgia factor because they didn’t have cameos from anyone I’d recognized: Pepper Roni, Spy Fox, Kyle Katarn, etc. I guess that what happens when you grow up with a bunch of educational PC games instead of a Nintendo. Thanks a ton, MOM! ;)

    Nice. I feel like Wreck it Ralph could tell some fun stories with how people interact with video games differently than the arcade style play.

    It would be such a niche joke, but I hope Ralph & co. encounter ROM hacks in their journey through the internet. Ralph working his way through a Kaizo level or just throwing him in a browser version of Excitebike would have me on the floor laughing.
