It's the moment Wreck-It Ralph fans have been waiting for! Disney announced the long-awaited sequel's title and release date during last night's CinemaCon presentation. It's called Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and will premiere on March 9, 2018. While it isn't really the smoothest of titles, but at least we're finally getting a sequel.
John C. Reilly (Ralph), Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz), Jack McBrayer (Fix-It Felix) and Jane Lynch (Sergeant Calhoun) are set to reprise their roles in the follow-up to 2012's Oscar-nominated Wreck-It Ralph. The first film's directors Rich Moore (who is still on a high from Zootopia) and Phil Johnston are also back to helm the sequel. Clark Spencer will be the producer once again.
“To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” Moore said in a statement. “Our production team has been hard at work designing a world that takes something we all think we know—the internet—but shows it in a whole new, imaginative way.” He also addressed the long title on Twitter:
You can just call it "Ralph" for short, if you want. https://t.co/vz9c0todas— Rich Moore (@_rich_moore) March 29, 2017
