'Wreck-It Ralph' Sequel Coming to Theaters in 2018

Disney has announced that a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph will be coming to theaters on March 9, 2016. Both John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman will be returning as Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz only this time they're putting video games behind them and taking on the entire internet. Also returning from the first film is director Rich Moore, producer Clark Spencer, and writer Phil Johnston who will also join Moore as a director. 

“From the moment we started working on the first ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” said Moore, who has been developing it since shortly after the release of the first film, and while directing this year’s critically-acclaimed hit “Zootopia” with Byron Howard. “This time, Ralph’s wrecking wreaks havoc on the Web—as only he can do. Characters we loved in the first film are back and we are ecstatic to be working with them—and the actors who voice them—once again.” 

“The world of the internet is the perfect place to send Ralph and Vanellope,” said Johnston. “The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”

“Ralph is a character very near and dear to my heart,” added Reilly. “I'm really looking forward to playing the big lug again. Making the first Wreck-It Ralph was one of the most special experiences I've ever had and I'm really looking forward to bringing him back to life. So many kids I've met all over the world are excited to see him again, too. They tell me all the time!”
