Ralph Breaks the Internet looks like it may very well be a worthy sequel to 2012’s hit Wreck-It Ralph earning some solid critical reception. The film which sees Ralph (John C. Reily) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) venturing into the Internet to find a replacement for Vanellope’s broken steering wheel to her game, Sugar Rush, the sequel looks like it’ll be able to satisfy audiences and rake in a good amount cash. It wasn’t exactly an easy process to get the film made as it took six years to be developed but it looks like it might pay off and we can probably expect a Wreck-It Ralph 3 being green-lit. However, it looks like there’s a chance we won’t even be seeing a third film as the sequel’s directors are pretty doubtful on that prospect.
Speaking to Comicbook, Ralph Breaks the Internet directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore doubts that Wreck-It Ralph 3 will come to pass. It’s not cause the film is expected to flop or anything or that Reily and Silverman want a raise but it’s simply cause it doesn’t make sense from a story-telling perspective, believing that they’re satisfied with how things wrapped up in the sequel. Johnston explained:
“I mean, I don’t know because I feel good about where they’re at. I mean you could envision like plot things where something gets screwed up and they have to reconnect to fix it. But in terms of it being a story of maturation for Ralph? Like he’s really, like John Reilly said in the press conference. The internet represents the sort of adult phase of their life. And I think Ralph at the end, has matured where he is comfortable in his skin and he will make friends and he and Vanellope will still hang out. And Vanellope is just coming of age, she’s just finding that thing that makes her passionate, and I don’t know.”
It looks like they’re more or less done with the story and believe that should be it for the characters. It’s pretty refreshing to see that they don’t wanna churn out another cash grab with a derivative conflict that in the end doesn’t really have much to say. It would be cool to see a Wreck-It Ralph 3 but to be honest… quality over quantity.
