WRECK-IT RALPH Director Rich Moore Talks about More Ideas for the Sequel

     March 1, 2013


Earlier this month, Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore talked about his ideas for his sequels.  His ideas included trying to bring in Dirk the Daring from Dragon’s Lair, and weaving in aspects of mobile/casual gaming because it’s becomes so prevalent.  Moore is out promoting the film’s upcoming 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD release, and he talked about more ideas he had regarding the sequel.

Hit the jump for what might be in store for Wreck-It Ralph 2.

wreck-it-ralph-blu-ray-box-artSpeaking to Hypable, Moore said he and lead voice actor John C. Reilly had been batting ideas back and forth about what they’d like to see in a sequel:

“That is so funny that you ask that,” Moore said with a laugh, “because I was just talking to John C. Reilly [the voice of Ralph] and we were talking about exactly that. Are there other Ralphs? What would happen if another Fix It Felix, Jr. game was plugged in? 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 Brothers 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? And it’s created some really cool conversations, so I think that that is so funny you bring up because it’s something we’re playing around with right now.”

wreck-it-ralph-movie-imageThis is similar to a plot point in Toy Story 2 when Buzz Lightyear discovers his other figures, but it sounds like if Moore went with this idea, then Wreck-It Ralph 2 would use the concept to power an entire film.  It’s a fun idea when you start playing it out like what if Super Mario started running into Tennis Mario, Baseball Mario, Board Game Mario, etc.  Then again, Mario could just be a crazy workaholic who curses Nintendo for failing to ever come up with new franchises.  “Whatever happened to Pikmin, you assholes?” Mario would cry. “It was supposed to give me a goddamn break!”  Then he would look over the graves of Bubsy, Crash Bandicoot, and other failed mascots, count his lucky stars, sigh, and go referee Punch Out.

It’s worth noting that Disney hasn’t green-lit a Wreck-It Ralph sequel yet, but Ralph seems like a good place to start a franchise.  However, if it does get a green-light, it will be Disney Animation Studios’ first sequel since The Rescuers Down Under (this is excluding the direct-to-video releases).
