Walt Disney Animation Studios was said to be considering the film after the success of the Rich Moore directed original – despite Disney having not made a sequel since the likes of The Rescuers Down Under and Fantasia 2000 (although Frozen 2 and a sequel to Big Hero 6 are also in the works).
As for Moore himself, he’s busy co-directing Zootopia, the animals as realistically flawed human beings animation which arrives next March.
While there's nothing confirmed just yet, rumours have Disney negotiating with Nintendo to licence the likes of Link from The Legend of Zelda and, of course, Mario & Luigi.
