Wreck-It Ralph 2 in the Works

Disney is moving forward with a sequel, according to John C. Reilly.

Disney's 2012 animated video game-themed movie Wreck-It Ralph is getting a sequel.

That's according to the movie's lead voice actor John C. Reilly, who said in a new interview with Irish radio show RTE Arena that he has "signed on" for Wreck-It Ralph 2.

Hollywood news site The Wrap notes that Disney has not yet officially greenlit the movie, though director of the original, Rich Moore, has talked openly about ideas for a follow-up.

No Caption Provided

One of Moore's ideas, according to a December 2012 interview, is for Nintendo's Mario to feature in a sequel. The first movie featured appearances from Bowser, Dr. Robotnik, and Pac-Man, among others.

Wreck-It Ralph follows the titular Ralph--played by Reilly--a villain in a retro Donkey Kong-style arcade game. After decades of being the bad guy, Ralph decides he's fed up with being hated for doing his job and quits to embark on a journey to reveal his true qualities.

The movie was a big success. It made close to $50 million during its first weekend, outperforming Walt Disney Animation Studios' previous record-holder, Tangled. To date, the film has generated more than $470 million at the global box office against a $165 million budget, according to Box Office Mojo.

Wreck-It Ralph was generally well-received by critics and also featured the voicework of other actors such as Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, and Mindy Kaling. The movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but ultimately lost out to Pixar's Brave.

Wreck-It Ralph should have won over Brave.

@deadpen: To be fair this movie here at least has something to do with games. After all it includes a lot of characters like Pacman, qbert, Sonic, Mario, ...

If there is no Mega Man characters in this movie, I would be very disappointed. :(

They ought to leave this one alone....the way the movie ended was perfect, a sequel will just take away from the magic of it.

@Gordaton: Not a hard accomplishment. Big Hero 6 --which is amazing-- blew it out of the water.

The kids and I really enjoyed Wreck-it-Ralph. Sequels are always hit and miss though. Hopefully they will take their time and make it because they have an awesome story. Rather than make a meh story just for the sake of a sequel.

Maybe they could address hacking and modding. Either way, most sequels don't live up to the original so I don't have hope this will be very good. More likely a cash grab.

If Mario will indeed be included, please, pay tribute to Mr. Iwata in the movie.

I'd still really love a Sugar Rush racing game-- like a good, next gen one, I mean. Not some little mobile thing.

@CatAtomic999: Yeah same here. I'm surprised Disney didn't release the Wreck it ralph game (the web browser game) as a an arcade title for console as a tie in to the movies.

Wreck-it-Ralph was really really good back when I saw it in theaters. Can't say I'm surprise it's getting a sequel though, it made a profit so it deserves a sequel. Will go see this as well :D

@hood_honky: it's a movie about video games, why should you cry about it being mentioned on Gamespot?

Seriously this whole complaining about this no movie on GS is getting fucking tiresome and it's fucking played out. For me, I like to talk about movies anyways and GS is still going to talk about games.

@davillain-: I couldn't agree more. People either have to get with the program or gtfo. Don't like it here anymore? There's plenty of fishy gaming sites in the sea...

Personally, I love movies/TV just as much as I love gaming.

@davillain-: I agree, movies tech and games are usually relevant to a large crowd of ppl.

Its safe to assume gamers here also like movies and tech. Only ppl that complain are the ppl that play games only.
