The lights are on
In a recent interview, Wreck-It Ralph composer Henry Jackman offered strong hints that a sequel to Disney's animated movie in a video game world is currently in the writing stages.
In an interview with Collider.com Jackman said, when asked if he had heard of a sequel being in the works, "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." Jackman then went on to express his appreciation for the original film and its director and story writer, Rich Moore.
We spoke with Moore in February of last year shortly before the release of the film on Blu-ray and asked him about the possibility of a sequel, among other questions. In regard to a possible sequel, Moore said, "Imagine if we went into home systems and other kinds of platforms or online, or mobile games or something like that? We can’t end with just arcade cabinets from the 1980s. There is huge interest on the creative side. And I think the people across the street from us on the main lot, they love the movie, too. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to reveal some day soon that we are doing one."

Our TakeGiven the success of the film from a critical and commercial standpoint, and the excitement about the world from the director, a sequel seem pretty likely. I enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph quite a bit and would excitedly welcome another adventure in its world.
