Wreck-It Ralph 2 is one of those magical sequels to a recent animated Disney film that a lot of people would like to see. The good news is that it might just happen, if we go by the word of the first film’s lead actor.
Cartoon Brew recently reported that, while attending the Galway Film Fleadh (a film festival) in Ireland, actor John C. Reilly let slip that he has officially signed on for Wreck-It Ralph 2.
This news was backed up by a tweet from the Irish Independent, which revealed that Reilly already made the deal with Disney while in Galway and “on the phone.”
Before anyone gets too excited, let me remind you that Disney has yet to make a solid announcement on the existence of Wreck-It Ralph 2. Director Rich Moore is currently busy co-directing Zootopia with Byron Howard, so chances are that Disney may not say anything until the director and the rest of the returning cast (Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, etc.) are fully committed and on board. This being said, the reports do suggest that Disney is eager to move forward with the project at any given moment.
The original film was released back on November 2, 2012 and grossed a respectable $471 million worldwide on a $165 million budget. That’s definitely a good enough reason alone to do a sequel, even if it’s done sooner rather than later.
