Director Rich Moore looks to have Mario featured in new ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ sequel

Disney officially announced a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph and last month set a date, officially naming the film: Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

Now director Rich Moore spoke about the film in a new interview, discussing the popular video game icon Mario from Nintendo and his exclusion from the first film and how that may change in the next film.

The new post details accounts over the years, “At dinner last night we were already talking about…So we’re talking ‘what could do they do? what kinda of things could happen? who could be in it?…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”.

Notably in a previous interview with IGN, Moore spoke about the specifications Nintendo had when it came to using Bowser in the recently-released movie and Nintendo wasn’’t very thrilled with their take on Bowser.

“…it wasn’’t all fun and games when it came to depicting these classic characters. Moore recalled one particular snag with Nintendo and their character Bowser”

Moore went on: “We did have kind of a check-in process, where we would show them the footage and say, ’What do you think? Is it good?’ At one point, [Nintendo] said, ’Bowser’s much bigger than that. He’s way bigger than Zangief.’ We were like, ’Okay, we’ll make him bigger. How’s that?’ They’d say, ’Yes, that’s good — but he wouldn’t drink his coffee like that. He wouldn’t make that mouth.’ [Laughs]”

The drama only continued: “Of course, then people from Sega said, ‘Well, Doctor Robotnik is bigger.’ [Laughs] They wanted their characters bigger and bigger. We were going to end up with these giants in a room, with Ralph as this little guy… But I think that stuff really helped. I looked back on our original animation before the Nintendo notes, and it was like, ’You know, he does look more like Bowser now.’”

The new film with John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman will now come out on November 21, 2018.
