Wreck-It Ralph is escaping out of his arcade and into the open universe of the internet, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 will hit the big screen next year. Dave Hollis, head of distribution for The Walt Disney Studios, revealed the much-anticipated sequel’s title and told CinemaCon attendees that Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer would be returning to the roster with John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman.
The team behind the original Wreck-It Ralph is coming together for this new adventure, Directors Rich Moore (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, The Simpsons) and Phil Johnston (writer, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, Cedar Rapids). “To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” said Moore. “Our production team has been hard at work designing the world that takes something we all think we know – the internet – but shows it in a whole new, imaginative way.”
Added Johnston, “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 the 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.”
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 hits U.S. theaters on March 9, 2018.
