John C. Reilly signs on for Wreck-It Ralph 2

Disney still has plans for a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, with John C. Reilly confirming to Irish radio show RTE Arena that he has officially signed on to lend his voice to the forthcoming animation.

The original film was a big hit for Disney, although plans for a sequel looked to have been sidelined in favour of pursuing a sequel to monster-hit, Frozen. That film was confirmed back in March, and now it would seem that a Wreck-It Ralph 2 announcement is imminent.

Director Rich Moore had discussed the prospect of a sequel back in 2013, suggesting that he'd like to work the advent of mobile gaming into the plot somehow. With Reilly now on board, hopefully we'll hear more on this one sooner rather than later.
