Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced last year. Set six years after the original, Ralph and his friends will explore the online gaming landscape. However, the film’s full title, which was announced at CinemaCon, will better reflect his journey into cyberspace.


Henceforth, the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph will be known as Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

Rich Moore directed the original film, and he’s returning to fulfill the same role for its sequel. Ralph’s debut served as a celebration of video games and their history, and Moore’s eager to introduce his characters to the wonders of online gaming:

“To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore. 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.”

Clark Spencer, who worked on Wreck-It Ralph and Zootopia, is producing. Phil Johnston is now co-directing with Moore, along with again supplying the story. Johnston, like Moore, is excited to expand Ralph’s universe:

“We’re so excited to be working with Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz, Fix-It Felix, and Sergeant Calhoun again, and we have new characters we look forward to unveiling. At the center of this film, as in the first one, is the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope, two once-outcasts, who in each other, found true friendship.”

John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman were already known to be reprising their respective roles as Ralph and Vanellope. Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer, the respective voice actors of Sergeant Calhoun and Fix-It Felix, are now confirmed to be returning, too.

While more details will be forthcoming, Moore has previously expressed his desire to see Tron and Nintendo’s Mario appear in a sequel.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is scheduled to crash into theaters on March 9, 2018.
