This fall will mark three years since Wreck-It Ralph hit the big screen, and we’ve yet to hear any updates on progress towards making a sequel. Last we heard from composer Henry Jackman was that a story was in the works, but that’s all he could say.
As of now, we’re still not sure when the sequel will get off the ground, but it sounds like fans don’t need to be worried that it won’t happen. Wreck-It Ralph voice actor John C. Reilly recently appeared at the Galway Film Fleadh in Ireland, and confirmed that he’s signed on for a sequel to the video game based adventure.
