It's going to be hard to top the magic of 2012's "Wreck-It Ralph," Disney's wildly creative, surprisingly emotional video game-centric flick that's due for a sequel later this year. But a brief new teaser for the follow-up has us itching to see what's in store for our favorite reluctant bad guy with big fists and an even bigger heart of gold.

The clip, shared by Disney Animation's social media team over the holiday weekend, played up the film's 2018 release date, having Ralph (John C. Reilly) literally bust his way out of 2017 and into the New Year. It's a way not only to celebrate the change in the calendar, but get fans pumped to see more from Ralph, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman), Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), and the rest of the gang from the first film.

It doesn't exactly tell us anything about the new flick -- subtitled "Ralph Breaks the Internet" -- but it does remind us how much we love this character. And based on everything we know about the sequel so far (the original Disney princesses! Taraji P. Henson as a sentient search engine!), it certainly sounds like this will be an adventure worth taking.

"Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" is due to boot up in theaters on November 21.
