Walt Disney Animation Studios just confirmed a Wreck-It Ralph sequel will be opening in theaters on March 9, 2018. Original voice cast members John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman will be reprising their roles as Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz, and Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore (who also helmed the box office blockbuster Zootopia) and producer Clark Spencer are also on board the sequel. Wreck-It Ralph writer Phil Johnston is co-directing and working on the script.
“Ralph is a character very near and dear to my heart,” stated Reilly. “I’m really looking forward to playing the big lug again. Making the first Wreck-It Ralph was one of the most special experiences I’ve ever had and I’m really looking forward to bringing him back to life. So many kids I’ve met all over the world are excited to see him again, too. They tell me all the time!”
“From the moment we started working on the first Wreck-It Ralph, we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” said Moore. “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,” said Johnston. “The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”
The untitled Wreck-It Ralph sequel’s release date means Disney’s Gigantic will move off of that date and will now open on November 21, 2018.
