Disney Animation Studios has green lit Wreck-It-Ralph 2, which will continue the adventures of Vanellope and Ralph. The sequel will head to cinemas in March 2018, which puts Disney in a prime position to get a head start into the profitable summer season. Disney will also have Marvel’s Infinity War Part 1 and Ant-Man and the Wasp also occupying the summer block that year.
Wreck-It-Ralph 2 will see the same team who put together the 2012 smash hit. Both John C.Reilly and Sarah Silverman are returning to voice the main characters in this follow-up, which will be directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston.
To coincide with the announcement of the film, Disney has released a first look at the film, courtesy of a production image with both Ralph and Vanellope. According to speculation, Wreck-It-Ralph 2 will take on an internet setting for the sequel, which of course means more cameos from beloved game characters.
