The composer of Disney Animation’s Wreck-It Ralph and the studio’s upcoming Big Hero 6 has stated that we soon may be seeing Ralph and the gang back in an all new movie sequel! In a recent interview for his work on the film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Jackman has hinted that Disney is indeed in early stages of production for Wreck-It Ralph 2.
When asked if he’s heard about a potential sequel, Jackman says:
I did, to be honest with you. I can’t tell you more, not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards. 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. Rich [Moore], the director, actually got involved in the writing. There was another writer (Phil Johnston) and I can’t remember his name. Just as a concept, it would be almost remiss of them not to write another one. It’s a great idea and it’s a great character.
On working on sequels and franchises, Jackman goes on to say:
I haven’t yet done a sequel. I think Wreck-It Ralph 2 might be the first one. Okay. So I know my colors. There’ll be new characters and everything. I have as yet not had the experience of returning to a palette and some themes that are established and I know. Every single film that I’ve done has been like, “Okay, so let’s start again.”
Released in 2012, Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph tells the story of a video game bad guy who tried to proves he’s rally a good guy by hopping games in the arcade. The movie was released to critical acclaim and commercial success, and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar. It was directed by Rich Moore, written by Jennifer Lee and Phil Johnson, with music by Henry Jackman.
Director Rich Moore had earlier mentioned plans for a sequel, stating that he would love to explore the world of console and online gaming. He also mentioned plans to include video game icons Mario and Tron for the sequel.
