Wreck-It Ralph 2 Has An Official Release Date!
Now, there is one other interesting thing to note; Walt Disney Animation Studios had another movie set for March 9, 2018 prior to today, Gigantic, a re-telling of sorts of Jack & The Beanstalk.
The film was heavily promoted during last year's D23 Expo, with a song from the film being performed. Wreck-It Ralph 2 appears to be taking over its release date, but there is no confirmation at this time if Gigantic is simply getting a delay or being outright cancelled. My guess? Gigantic will now come out in Thanksgiving 2018 to allow for some creative rejiggering, something that Peter Sciretta over at SlashFilm mentioned had been rumored to be occuring for a while now.
It'll be interesting to see where Gigantic falls on the release schedule, but for now, hooray for Wreck-It Ralph 2! Rich Moore has been on fire with directorial efforts thus far and I'm excited to where he takes this world next!
