Some impressive concept art also debuted during the live Facebook announcement, depicting the titular hero carrying his good pal Vanellope on his shoulders… standing alongside digital billboard which parody the likes of Google and Amazon.

But what’s next for Ralph in the upcoming sequel?

“It’s top secret but I’ll tell you this much… Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the Internet,” teased the film’s star, John C. Reilly. “What could go wrong?”

It was also revealed that Rich Moore, who directed the first film (as well as the recent hit ‘Zootopia’), will co-direct the sequel along with Phil Johnston, who co-wrote the original.

Of course, the original ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ took us on a trip through the classic videogame era, with cameos from a number of videogame celebrities including Donkey Kong, Dr Robotnik and even M. Bison and Zangief of ‘Street Fighter’ fame.

And now it looks as though Ralph will take on the internet.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ made an impressive $189 million at the US box office, with a whopping $500 million worldwide. But can the sequel do even better? It’s no secret that more recent Disney offerings (such as ‘Frozen’ and ‘Zootopia’) have done even better.

Could ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ manage pull in bigger numbers than the original?

For now, we’ll have to wait and see… but fans have been dying for a sequel.

‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ heads to cinemas on 9 March 2018.
