Henry Jackman, the composer behind Wreck-It Ralph, has revealed that Disney is actively working on a sequel! However, Jackman told Collider that he was hesitant to go into any more detail because the project is still in development.
“I can’t tell you more, not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards,” he said. “I don’t know any more other than a story is indeed being written. 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 and I can’t remember his name (Editor’s note: it’s 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.”
In February 2013, director Rich Moore told Hypable of an idea for the sequel that he and Reilly were intrigued by.
“Are there other Ralphs [in this world we were introduced to in the original]? What would happen if another Fix It Felix, Jr. game was plugged in?” he asked. “Are there other Ralphs that are more contemporary? Is there another version of the game that was made for mobile? Are there those kind of Super Smash Bros types games where all the characters are gathered in a fighting game? What would that be like for Ralph to come face to face with those different iterations of himself?”
The animated film following a video game character in search of a better reputation grossed $189 million in the United States and $281 million internationally. Voice actors include John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, and Jane Lynch. Wreck-It Ralph was Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 2012 film.
