WRECK-IT RALPH 2: Composer Henry Jackman says Disney is Making Sequel

Wreck-It Ralph

Composer says Wreck-It Ralph 2 is Moving Forward. The composer for the original 2012 Walt Disney film Wreck-it Ralph film, Henry Jackman, says the that the company is writing a story for a sequel movie. The composer didn’t say much in his recent interview but it was enough let fans of the original know that Ralph’s adventures have not ended.

What composer Henry Jackman had to say about Wreck-It Ralph 2:

“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.”

How Wreck-It Ralph did at the box office:

Wreck-It Ralph grossed $189 million Stateside and $281 overseas.

Rich Moore‘s Wreck-It Ralph starred John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Sarah Silverman, Adam Carolla, Jamie Elman, Rachael Harris, Dennis Haysbert, Mindy Kaling, Edie McClurg, Ed O’Neill, Horatio Sanz, Stefanie Scott, Alan Tudyk, and Skylar Astin.

Wreck-It Ralph‘s plot synopsis: “Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness.

He sneaks into the game with a simple plan — win a medal — but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?”

    This is excellent news, and I hope that Rich Moore or one of the higher-ups at Disney confirms it for good. Wreck-It Ralph has massive franchise potential right up there with Toy Story, not to mention that the character development-driven stories and open-ended setting could easily fuel a great sequel. It definitely deserves a sequel more than the fairy tale movies do; I’d rather see WIR 2 than a bargain bin direct-to-video cash-in for the latest princess movie.
