WRECK IT RALPH composer Henry Jackman recently spoke with Collider about his score for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER - music some fans seem to be dismembering, although I thought it worked rather well.
The subject semi-naturally turned to whether Jackman had any news about the burgeoning WRECK IT RALPH sequel we first heard about shortly after the progenitor film’s 2012 release.
His response was promising…
I believe that it is officially on the cards. I don’t know any more other than a story is indeed being written. I’d be very surprised not to. I’m not blowing my own trumpet. Forget about the music. Just the movie itself I thought was a fantastically imaginative and creative piece of work.
Just as a concept, it would be almost remiss of them not to write another one. It’s a great idea and it’s a great character.
If memory serves, I seem to recall that some of the initial sequel chatter indicating that Nintendo’s Mario character would play some part in this new WIR installment - and that TRON might have a notable presence in the picture as well. Will these initial hopes/plans hold? Hopefully, as both could be tremendously entertaining given WIR’s visually rich video game crossover universe.
