At CinemaCon yesterday, Walt Disney Animation Studios announced the official title and some new information about their upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel.
The sequel is now titled Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. The film is being co-directed by Rich Moore (director of the original film) and Phil Johnson (writer of the original film and who is now sharing directorial duties). Clark Spencer is producing.
It was also announced that the four main characters (and their celebrity voices) are returning for the sequel: Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly), Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman), Fix-It Felix (voiced by Jack McBrayer), and Sergeant Calhoun (voiced by Jane Lynch). Phil Johnson said, “We’re so excited to be working with Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz, Fix-It Felix and Sergeant Calhoun again, and we have new characters we look forward to unveiling. At the center of this film, as in the first one, is the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope, two once-outcasts, who in each other, found true friendship.”
About the sequel, Rich Moore added: “To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore. 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.”While the new title is a bit long, this project has great potential and is definitely in good hands. We can’t wait to learn more.
