A sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph is on the way. John C. Reilly confirmed in an interview over the weekend that he’s officially signed on for the sequel, though details on the film are slim. Here’s what director Rich Moore told The Huffington Post on the possibility of a sequel back in 2013:
My experience was so tremendous on this film and the animators, the designers, the story artists, the actors – I know everyone here had a good time making the film. I’ve talked with John [C. Reilly] and Sarah [Silverman] and we would all love to visit that world again and work with those characters again. We would jump at the opportunity. We’re all crossing our fingers about as far as you can cross them that we get a chance to do that.
The original Wreck-It Ralph made over $470 million worldwide, so it was only a matter of time.
