Exclusive : Reilly, Silverman and Moore on Wreck-It Ralph 2

Exclusive : Reilly, Silverman and Moore on Wreck-It Ralph 2
Clint

Caught up with the always-fab John C.Reilly, who I’ve interviewed a few times now, and that loveable larrikan Sarah Silverman, yesterday who are in town to promote their vocal efforts inside Disney’s “Wreck-it Ralph”.

One of the true highlights of the year, “Ralph” encompasses a little bit of everything, and will unquestionably appeal to anyone with a ticking organ inside their chest. I’m as eager to see it again as my kiddo is.

As not only an old friend of John C.Reilly’s (left), but a big fan of Disney’s “Wreck-it Ralph”, I decided to let my 5-year old daughter Charisma have the last question – especially since she couldn’t attend the interview yesterday.

Her question, not surprisingly, was “Will there be more [Wreck-it Ralph]?”

And seems my daughter snagged quite the scoop (!). I shall retire now and let her take the reigns.

According to Reilly, Silverman and director Rich Moore the sequel looks to be a go.

“You tell her ‘there will be [a sequel]”, says Silverman.

“They wouldn’t make [all that] merchandise, if [Disney] didn’t have plans for other [Wreck-it Ralph] stories”, adds Reilly.

“Some of the big muckety-muckets at the studio, who I just saw the other night, were like ‘We’re talking sequel!'”, Reilly reveals. “The movie made $150 million dollars in eleven days, it broke the box-office record for Disney animated movies on opening weekend. If that’s any indication that we’ll be doing a sequel… I bet we’ll be doing a sequel.”

Director Rich Moore is very confident they’ll be getting to work on a sequel in the near future – and he even knows who he wants in it : Mario.

“At dinner last night we were already talking about”, he says, “So we’re talking ‘what could do they do? what kinda of things could happen? who could be in it?”

Moore says he doesn’t plan on handing over the directing reigns come sequel someone else.

“I love the group, I’d be crazy to ask someone else to take the reigns.”

Mario is someone you’ll definitely see in the next one, says Moore. The only reason the character didn’t appear in the first film is because Moore couldn’t find anywhere for him to go, it wasn’t because Nintendo refused them.

“We’ll really come up with something good for Mario to do [in the next film]”, says Moore. “To be able to present him in the sequel, would be great”.

I know there’s been so much talk of “Argo”, “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Les Miserables”, but don’t discount “Wreck-it Ralph”, it’s definitely one of the year’s top five films. Bring on… the next level!
