Disney announced in a Facebook livestream today that Wreck-It Ralph 2 will hit theaters on March 9, 2018.
“Wreck-It Ralph” grossed more than $470 million in 2012 and received an Oscar nomination. Moore directed from a screenplay by Johnston and “Frozen” co-director Jennifer Lee based on a story by Moore, Johnston and Jim Reardon.
The movie took place in the game “Fix-It Felix, Jr.” The villain, Wreck-It Ralph, embarks on a journey to break his bad guy rep.
Co-directors Rich Moore, who co-directed Zootopia and helmed the original Wreck-It Ralph, and Phil Johnston, who co-wrote the first film, made the announcement alongside John C. Reilly, who is returning to voice Ralph in the sequel.
“Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the internet,” Reilly says of the film’s plot. While few other details are known, Disney also released concept art showing Ralph entering the online world with his friend Vanellope von Schweetz, voiced by Sarah Silverman in the first film. The art features parodies of major online brands like Google, Amazon, and more.
