James Corden and the voice behind The Little Mermaid have signed on for Wreck-It Ralph 2

James Corden is apparently taking his comedy chops to Disney – where he is joining the voice cast of Wreck-It Ralph 2.

He will reportedly join Jodi Benson, a name you may not recognise but a voice you definitely will, as the woman behind Ariel in the classic Disney film The Little Mermaid and Barbie in the Toy Story films.


Jodi captioned this picture: “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 so incredibly blessed & thankful.”

Not much is known about the characters they will voice but we do know John C Reilly will be back in the title role.

The film will be released in UK cinemas in March 2018.
