Robert Dominic Ventre II
Content EditorGet psyched up for another wonderful homage to the world of classic video games, as it's looking like we'll be getting Wreck-It Ralph 2 some time in the (hopefully near) future. In an interview with Collider, the original composer for Wreck-It Ralph, Henry Jackman, spoke on topics ranging from the recently-released Captain America: The Winter Soldier, his process and prominent influences, and finally, the possibility of a Wreck-It Ralph sequel. When asked if he'd heard any word of said sequel, Jackman stated, "I did, to be honest with you. 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." While Walt Disney Animation Studios doesn't have a tendency towards releasing sequels, even for their most successful franchises (Denofgeek.com notes that The Rescuers is the only film from their catalogue to recieve an official sequel, in the form of The Rescuers Down Under), this trend may be set to flip. Frozen 2 has been rumored to be in pre-production for some time, which is hardly surprising considering the unbridled success of its predecessor (Frozen is now officially the highest-grossing animated film of all time! Eat it, Pixar!). Seeing as Wreck-It Ralph grossed over $180 million in the U.S. alone (and over $280 million worldwide), it doesn't seem like a stretch to assume that Disney might want to keep that particular train rolling. Will the writing staff be the same? Where will Ralph's adventures take him this time? Personally, I will be happy as long as Jane Lynch returns to voice the hard-nosed FPS heroine, Calhoun. Hopefully things will go better this time around than on her first wedding day, [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKK-KLDlm20[/embed]
