Disney Animation are doing very well at the moment. There are strong rumours of a sequel to its major hit Frozen and now, according to composer Henry Jackman, a Wreck-It Ralph 2 is in the works.
Ralphs last adventure grossed $471m worldwide, with a $150m+ budget it was more than successful. Its nostalgic themes attracted older gamers and dazzled kids, and according to Jackman, will be doing so at least one more time. He states:
“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.”
The first film starred John C. Reilly as a video-game villain questioning his place in the gaming universe and wondering if there is more to life than doing the job intended of him (that being beaten by squeaky-clean hero Fix-It Felix, Jr.). Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope von Schweetz joins him on his journey and he sets off on a life-changing adventure across numerous gaming worlds.
Look out for more information on this animated feature soon.
