“Wreck-It Ralph 2” confirmed

Ralph and company are returning for a sequel! The news was announced yesterday by John C. Reilly, who voices the titular character.

Looks like Disney is playing games again. Actor John C. Reilly  confirmed that Wreck-It Ralph 2 is in the works and that he will be reprising his role as Ralph. There is no other information concerning the plot, release date or when production will begin for the film.

Wreck-It Ralph was released in 2012 and made over $470 million worldwide at the box office and received high critical acclaim. The film follows the discontent life of video game villain Ralph and his quest to be more than his assigned role in society. I believe it was one of the most original Disney films in a long time, bringing new life and paying homage to classic video game arcades.

Wreck-It Ralph sequel will be interesting, mainly because of its nearly limitless possibilities. There is so much more to explore in the video-arcade world established in the original film. Wreck-It Ralph’s world is similar to the Toy Story world: both series take place in fictional universe parallel to our own. Toy Story asked us: what do toys do when were not playing wit them? Wreck-It Ralph asks us: what do video game characters do when were not playing their games? Both universes offer great story potential.

Toy Story comparisons aside, it’s exciting to see Disney taking a risk. I cannot wait to see what adventures Ralph and his video game companions embark on.

  1. I’m actually more lukewarm on Wreck-it Ralph than most because I feel they get stuck in Sugar Rush too long. It should have been zipping around the different worlds more. That said, I’m actually excited about 2 because I hope thy will fix that.
