"Wreck-It Ralph" grossed $189M in the US and $281 globally. It featured the voices of John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, and Jane Lynch.
Director Rich Moore had also hinted on the possible plot of the sequel in an interview with Hypable. The director was promoting the DVD and Blu-ray launch of "Wreck-It Ralph" then.
Moore hinted about Ralph meeting different versions of himself in "Wreck-It Ralph 2."
"Are there other Ralphs [in this world we were introduced to in the original]? What would happen if another Fix It Felix, Jr. game was plugged in?" he asked. "Are there other Ralphs that are more contemporary? Is there another version of the game that was made for mobile? Are there those kind of Super Smash Bros types games where all the characters are gathered in a fighting game? What would that be like for Ralph to come face to face with those different iterations of himself?"
Moore also hinted on the possibility of well-known video game star Mario joining the cast. "We'll really come up with something good for Mario to do [in the next film]," he explained. "To be able to present him in the sequel, would be great."
In a recent interview with Collider, "Wreck-It Ralph" composer Henry Jackman confirmed that Disney is indeed working on a sequel.
He shared some information about the sequel, but tried not to divulge more than necessary.
"I can't tell you more, not because I'm being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards," he said. "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 and I can't remember his name (Editor's note: it's Phil Johnston). 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."
