Official Title Announced for ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Sequel

Highlighting their upcoming slate of movies, Disney at this year’s CinemaCon announced the official title for the eagerly anticipated Wreck-It Ralph sequel.

The sequel will be called Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

A logo was also revealed, which cleverly pays homage not only to the original film’s logo but also incorporates an app icon-like design, complete with a red notification:

Ralph Breaks the Internet will also feature a returning cast, including John C. Reilly (Ralph), Sarah Silverman (Vanellope), Jane Lynch (Sergeant Calhoun) and Jack McBrayer (Fix-It Felix). New cast members include Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Barbie in Toy Story 3), and James Corden. Alan Tudyk will also be returning in an as-of-yet unknown role.The sequel will take Ralph and the gang through the arcade’s Wi-Fi router into the vast Internet space, where Ralph somehow manages to wreak even more havoc. Director Rich Moore has also promised a slew of new characters and cameos (including, we hope, Mario).

Rich Moore stated, “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.”

Wreck-It Ralph was released in November of 2012 and was the highest grossing opening for Walt Disney Animation Studios at the time. Since then, it has gone on to become one of Disney’s most beloved modern classics, and remains insanely clever and fresh to this day.

The sequel is being helmed by original director Rich Moore who will be joined by the screenwriter of the original film, Phil Johnston, with producer Clark Spencer. It is scheduled for release on March 9, 2018.

    Hmm, well it’s ok I guess but it’s definitely nothing I will remember as much as say Tangled, Moana, Big Hero 6 or Zootopia. However the title is accurate to the plot so I can’t blame on that. I’m still kind of off on the internet concept but I will remain open minded.

    I just feel like it could have been much more interesting if it had focused on console games universe instead. Cause one day in the future this concept will be outdated with all the memes and buzz on the internet.

  • That’s a really dumb title. But I still think it will be a good movie, especially if they have the original team working on it.

    • Manuel Orozco

      True and I enjoyed Zootopia. Again to those who read my review back in November finishing the WDAS countdown with the article, I liked it of course but I didn’t think it was as great as some people say it is.

    • I’d agree with that. Considering Disney’s recent track record, I am not concerned.

  • Phoenix Wright

    Yeah that title just made me a lot less excited for this movie. What was wrong with just plain old Wreck-It-Ralph 2? Hopefully the movie ends up being good anyway

    • Manuel Orozco

      True but not going to ruin my excitement so easily.

  • I honestly love the way they told us in that little video with an app format, so cool!! But unsure if I like the title name specifically, I mean it maybe a bit long and people might still just call it Wreck it Ralph 2 anyway….
    But doesn’t distort my excitement whatsoever, only increases!! ^.^

    • The app thing reminds me of the Emoji Movie, though Ralph will clearly be better.

      • Manuel Orozco

        I’m not looking forward to Emoji one bit.

      • Lol I totally forgot about that movie!! Yeah kinda does remind me of that, but agreed Wreck it Ralph is probably gonna be much better

        • Manuel Orozco

          Well Hayley although I don’t plan to watch Emoji, you definitely are right.

  • My OCD makes me wish the title was ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet’ rather than the other way around.

    That said, I’m personally not a fan of the title. It’s the longest Disney Animation title, with 8 words (!!!). I’d also be fine with either just ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ or just ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’.

    And why not WRECKS The Internet? That would have been gold!

    • Manuel Orozco

      I agree about the reversal. Also, why is it that Rotoscopers hasn’t posted the Ferdinand trailer?

    • Hannah Wilkes

      Ralph Wrecks the Internet would have been SO much better!

  • Manuel Orozco

    The title should have been more simple but I’m excited we are getting it anyway. Also Jodi Benson? OMG I’ve been a fan of her since she did Thumbelina. I find myself in a minority who prefers Thumbelina over Little Mermaid!

  • Rachel Wagner

    This is a terrible title. The subtitle is before the title. It’s too long and the whole idea of Ralph breaking the internet doesnt appeal to me

    • TripleStrykeLover

      Never judge a book by it’s cover. Just because the title is stupid doesn’t mean it’s going to be a bad movie, maybe it’s just a pun title.

      • Manuel Orozco

        Yeah sometimes I rejected movies because of it’s title. Good Dinosaur didn’t even make sense but it was still enjoyable.

      • Rachel Wagner

        Of course I just didn’t care for the title. Never know until I see the movie

  • The logo is creative, but that’s an awful title, although I’m willing to forgive it since Kung Fu Panda isn’t a very good title either and I love those movies.

  • k

    So looking forward to this. Don’t care what the title is.

  • Jeremiah

    Kind of an odd title. But who cares, Jodi Benson’s going to be back in a Disney movie, that’s so cool!

    • Manuel Orozco

      IKR! I loved her voice work as Thumbelina and Barbie. She has one of the most beautiful voices in the world. I used to even think she voiced Belle and Pochahontas.

      • Jeremiah

        Yes! Her voice is golden, so sweet and with some of the most genuine passion you’ll ever hear. Who knows, if we’re lucky, maybe she’ll sing a bit. (It’s unlikely but possible.)

        • Manuel Orozco

          I doubt we’ll hear her sing but that would be a surprise. And can you even believe it’s been nearly 30 years since the release of the original Little Mermaid?

          • Jeremiah

            Hopefully we’ll get some kind of 30th anniversary release.

          • Manuel Orozco

            Won’t surprise me a bit. But since then she’s been making history with Ariel.

  • Yellow

    I really like that it’s not just being called “Wreck-It Ralph 2”, they’re naming it something that’s more specific to its story. The Wreck It Ralph 2 part sounds like it would be in parentheses so that if you were reading about the movie you’d know it’s a sequel. That’s cool, but I think they could have just stuck with the first four words too. Either way I’m excited! To think that of all the modern Disney movies, this is the first one to get a sequel. I’m happy with how that turned out.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I’m happy how the original turned out too even if I only saw it twice. It’s been a long time since I watched it. But I know how exciting this sequel is going to be. I’m still on the fence about Frozen 2 though whenever we are getting that.

      • Yellow

        Me too; the way the first Frozen ended, it doesn’t seem like there’s much room to continue the story. We’ll see what they come up with.

        • Manuel Orozco

          Unless of course Anna and Kristoff’s wedding happens and Elsa is put in a situation where she’s going to have to solve on her own with no one she deeply cares about to help her like last time. Plus, with rumors of her being the first Disney bisexual character, I wouldn’t mind because hello Idina Menzel being the original Maureen in Rent. But you are right. We shall see what tricks they got up their sleeve.

          • Yellow

            Going the romance route seems too easy, unless there’s more to it.

          • Manuel Orozco

            That will be for Jennifer Lee herself to decide since she will be reprising screenwriting and co-directing duties. What also worries me is if Hans will be back for revenge on the girls.

  • “Ralph Breaks The Internet” could’ve been shortened to “Internet Invasion”. Nonetheless
    I’m looking forward to this, especially considering that it’s being made by the same folks
    who did the original. Hopefully they’ll have a story that won’t become dated in the future.

  • I’m fine with the title, but would’ve preferred what they originally were going with “Super Wreck-It Ralph”

  • Hannah Wilkes

    What ever happened to the famous Disney/Pixar one word titles? I think the title is a little clunky, but I’m still super excited for the movie!

  • Trev

    Meh. I did not really care for the original Wreck-It Ralph. But I’ll probably still check this sequel out since Disney has been on such a strong streak lately.

  • When I first saw the logo and title, I didn’t actually think it was the real deal. The title was so clunky and long, and the app logo reminded me of those strange disney movies as emojis videos. It just couldn’t be the actual thing. But it is. Usually first looks are supposed to excite you, but this just kinda drew me away. I’ll stay optimistic though knowing that disney is in a much better place to do these sequels, and I’m sure the movie itself will turn out fine, if not decent.

  • Cale

    Obviously the best title would be “Wreck-It Ralph: The Wreckoning”.
