Disney announces title of 'Wreck-It Ralph' sequel: 'Ralph Breaks the Internet'

Step aside, Kim Kardashian!

Disney has officially announced the title to the sequel of 'Wreck-It Ralph,' and it takes an unexpected cue from the reality star: "Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" is slated for release on March 9, 2018. The studio made the big announcement this week at CinemaCon.

The cheeky title is drawn from Kardashian's infamous "Break the Internet" photo shoot for Paper, in which she balanced a champagne glass on her otherworldly rear end.

Although new characters will be added to the mix, the original cast is all signed on: John C. Reilly (Ralph), Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz), Jane Lynch (Sergeant Calhoun), and Jack McBrayer (Fix-It Felix) will be back in action.

"Wreck-It Ralph," released in 2012, received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature, and the all-star production team has only had continued success: Director Rich Moore, producer Clark Spencer and writer Phil Johnston just took home the same award for 2016's "Zootopia."

Donald Glover will play Simba in the upcoming live-action adaption of "The Lion King," and James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa (!!!). According to Disney, the film is on the "fast track" through production and may arrive sooner rather than later. Jon Favreau will direct -- he also directed 2016's "The Jungle Book," so he's sure to crush it!

Your childhood crush is coming to life. The new "Aladdin" will reportedly be a brand-new take on the beloved story and is expected to seriously deviate from the original plot.
