It looks like viewers won’t need more quarters to revisit this animated, videogame adventure. According to a recent publication on Entertainment Weekly, Disney has just announced a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph is in the works. Mark Snetiker writes,
“In Wreck-It Ralph 2, Reilly will once more return to voice video game villain Wreck-It Ralph, who in the first film had to reconcile his archetype of arcade boss with his real desire to become a hero. Concept art released during the announcement on Facebook Live shows Ralph going digital, standing with sidekick Vanellope over billboards parodying Google and Amazon.”
“‘It’s top secret but I’ll tell you this much… Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the Internet,’ Reilly teased. ‘What could go wrong?’”
“Rich Moore, who directed the first film (and recently guided Zootopia to its billion-dollar box office), will co-direct the sequel with Phil Johnston, who co-scripted the original (with Frozen’s Jennifer Lee).”
Ralph’s new adventure is slated to be released March 9th, 2019.
