Disney has officially announced we don't have too long to wait for Wreck-It Ralph 2.

The animated sequel will arrive in cinemas on March 9, 2018, but we still don't know what its actual title will be.

It was revealed last year that directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston were working on a sequel to the Oscar-nominated 2012 hit, with John C Reilly confirmed to be coming back as the titular character.

Moore's original film followed video game villain Ralph, who abandoned his arcade machine to achieve his dream of being a hero for once.

Cameos from video game characters in the first movie included Sonic the Hedgehog, Doctor Eggman, Bowser and a host of Street Fighter characters.

Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel, and they'll be joined by a Disney veteran in the form of Jodi Benson, who voiced Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

She also played Barbie in the Toy Story series and shared her excitement at being cast in the film on Instagram back in January.

"So very honoured to be working with Oscar nominated & Golden Globe winners Rich Moore & Clark Spencer back at my original home, Walt Disney Animation Studios in LA. Feeling incredibly blessed & thankful," Benson wrote.

James Corden is also voicing an unknown character in Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is rumoured to centre around Ralph and Vanellope (Silverman) wrecking the internet.
