When one thinks of animation the first thing that comes to most minds is Pixar. However they are not the only people animating stuff. There’s stuff like Sausage Party and Kubo and the Two Strings going on, so there’s more to animation than Pixar. Another great example is actually something Pixar adjacent: Disney. While most of their best work has been in conjunction with Pixar, there are a few gems that stick out even with the famous animation company backing them. One example of this is Wreck-It Ralph. A movie about being more than what you’re ‘supposed’ to be, Wreck-it Ralph was a heartwarming movie about a video game villain that didn’t want to be a villain. And along with that lovely premise it had great voice talent, some names being John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman.
And now that lovely family film is getting a sequel. Wreck-It Ralph 2 has just been given a March 9th, 2018 release date. It is confirmed that John C. Reilly will be returning to voice the ‘villain’ Wreck-it Ralph. the director of the original, Rich Moore, will be co-directing this sequel alongside Phil Johnston, who co-wrote the film’s script. It is unclear at the moment who else will be joining Reilly in this sequel, but we have till 2018 so we have time.
As for plot not too much has been revealed, however John C. Reilly and a photo have given us a bit of insight about what it’ll be about. According to Reilly, “It’s top secret but I’ll tell you this much… Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the Internet” So if that’s not enough to reel you in I don’t know what will. And as you can see from the photo he looks like he will indeed be ‘wrecking the internet’.
So I’m pumped! How about you? Do you want other characters from the original to return? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on Wreck-it Ralph 2 and other things in the world of movie news.
