Wreck-It Ralph

Shortly after Wreck-It Ralph arrived in theaters in 2012 and impressed the hell out of critics and audiences alike, director Rich Moore was already talking about a potential sequel with the prospect of Nintendo's iconic plumber Mario getting in the mix. Since then, we haven't heard anything about the animated sequel developing at Disney, but Collider recently spoke to the original film's composer Henry Jackman, who revealed that Wreck-It Ralph 2 is being written now, but didn't offer any details. He said, "I can’t tell you more, not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards." More below!

Jackman was asked about the potential of him returning to score the sequel because he responded:

"I’d be very surprised not to. I’m not blowing my own trumpet. Forget about the music. Just the movie itself I thought was a fantastically imaginative and creative piece of work. Rich [Moore], the director, actually got involved in the writing. There was another writer [Phil Johnston]. Just as a concept, it would be almost remiss of them not to write another one. It’s a great idea and it’s a great character."

If Jackman already knows about the sequel (he's also coming off Captain America: The Winter Soldier), it's likely that he'll be involved. Wreck-It Ralph has been part of Walt Disney Animation's resurgence with animated filmmaking outside of distributing Pixar Animation films. In addition to the video game world story, Tangled and Frozen have proven to be huge hits, with the latter recently becoming the highest grossing animated film of all time. With success like that, you can be sure they want to keep their valuable properties alive. We're not sure when Wreck-It Ralph will get off the ground or be officially announced, but if anymore information becomes available, we'll let you know.
