John C Reilly has confirmed that he’s signed up to make Wreck-It Ralph 2…
It’s been rumoured for some time, but it looks as if the cat is now firmly out of the bag: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is on the way.
Walt Disney Animation Studios was said to be considering the film following the success of director Rich Moore’s original film. It hadn’t made a sequel before though, outside of The Rescuers Down Under and Fantasia 2000. But last year, Frozen 2 was announced, and there’s believed to be a Big Hero 6 sequel in development too.
Rich Moore meanwhile has been working on co-directing Zootopia for Disney, which arrives next March. When he’s done with that, though, it looks like Wreck-It Ralph 2 may be next.
Not that it’s him who’s confirmed the project. Instead, the news was broken by John C Reilly, at Ireland’s Galway Film Fleadh. He confirmed at the event that he had officially signed up for Wreck-It Ralph 2, and although no further details were forthcoming, it seems safe to assume that this is now a sequel that’s very much happening.
