The first version of “Wreck-It Ralph” was a huge hit for Disney Animation. It came during the company’s “revival era”, which was when it was able to get back on track after a rough period during the 2000s. After several years of development, the film came out in November 2012. It made almost $200 million in the US and almost $500 million worldwide.
In 2018, the sequel to Ralph Breaks the Internet, which was released six years earlier, would go on to gross over $200 million in the U.S. and more than $529 million worldwide.
It’s been two years since Ralph Breaks the Internet hit theaters, and it’s still not too early to start thinking about the possibility of a third film in the series. If the current pattern continues, a third film could be released in 2024.
During a press briefing for Ralph Breaks the Internet, Johnston and Moore revealed that they had a few ideas for the next film in the Ralph series. According to Johnston, Ralph gets into a 3D printer and creates his own world. However, his ideas completely go off the rails, and he then coaches a group of unlikely Little Leaguers.
In the upcoming film “Wreck-It Ralph 3,” Moore’s concept is a darker take on the tale of two best friends who are separated by the endless internet. In the animated film “Taken,” the main character, Vanellope, is played by the actor, Liam Neeson, who helps the two girls find Ralph.
During an interview with CINEMABLEND, Johnston and Moore stated that there is a chance that someone could do a 3D version of “Wreck-It Ralph.” Unfortunately, given that “Ralph Breaks the Internet” was not Disney’s first choice, this idea is not feasible.
During a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, John C. Reilly, who plays Ralph in the film, said that he had some ideas for the third film, including sending Ralph and Vanellope into outer space. He also noted that if the two of them were able to get into the Hubble telescope, they might be able to break it.
There are so many possibilities that can be created by Ralph and Vanellope in the upcoming film “Wreck-It Ralph 3.”
Although Frozen 3 didn’t require a follow-up, Disney is well-equipped to handle this feature. There are so many other films that don’t need a sequel that it’s ridiculous to think that they would need one. Some of these include the upcoming movies “The Last Dragon” and “Cruella a Raya,” as well as an untitled project by Byron Howard and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
It’s been a while since we heard about the third installment of the Ralph series, but Disney still hasn’t confirmed a release date for it. The studio will then wait for the approval of the film before it can be released.
A third “Wreck It Ralph” film is in development, and it could be released as early as 2022. If Disney decides to go ahead with the project, it could be released as early as 2024-25.
