After teasing an announcement yesterday, Walt Disney Animation Studios confirmed today that a sequel to the beloved WRECK IT RALPH film is in the works for a 2018 release!
“Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the internet.”
—John C. Reilly on upcoming plotline
The announcement was made today via Facebook Live by Disney directors Rich Moore, Phil Johnston and actor John C. Reilly. Of course, the announcement comes more as a confirmation as Reilly accidentally dropped the news nearly a full year ago in an interview.
What will be the new focus? According to Reilly himself: Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the internet.
Sarah Silverman is confirmed to return as the lovable Vanellope von Schweetz. Moore returns to direct along with Johnston.
