Disney announced this morning via Facebook Live that it will produce a Wreck-It Ralph sequel for release on March 9, 2018. In the yet-to-be-titled film, Ralph will move out of the arcade and wreck the Internet instead (concept art is posted above).
One of the film’s original directors, Rich Moore, who more recently co-directed Zootopia, will direct the sequel. Phil Johnston, who did story and screenplay on both Wreck-It Ralph and Zootopia, joins Moore as a co-director.
“From the moment we started working on the first Wreck-It Ralph, we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” said Moore in a statement this morning. “This time, Ralph’s wrecking wreaks havoc on the Web—as only he can do.”
