With the sequel now less than a year away, Disney have finally agreed on a title and that’s Ralph Breaks the Internet, fitting considering the new direction.
Released on November 2nd 2012, Wreck-It Ralph opened with $49 million and went on to gross $189.4 million in the US and $471.2 million worldwide. A sequel has been a long time coming, by the time Ralph Breaks the Internet opens in theaters, March 9th 2018, it will have been almost 7 and a half years since the first film.
So what’s going on in this sequel? As you can probably tell from the title, Ralph ends up on the internet (someone plugs a WiFi router in the arcade). The same creative team behind the first movie is back for Ralph Breaks the Internet and they seem to be very excited about this new direction. Co-director Rich Moore (Zootopia) had this to say: “To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” and “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”. Also directing Ralph Breaks the Internet is Phil Johnston.
Back to voice Ralph is of course John C. Reilly, same goes for Sarah Silverman as Vanellope and Jack McBrayer as Felix. Ralph Breaks the Internet opens March 9th 2018.
