Sweet animated follow-up in which the two arcade game characters central to 2012’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” the burly eponymous demolition specialist (voice of John C. Reilly) and his best friend (voice of Sarah Silverman), a diminutive race car driver, find both their resourcefulness and their relationship put to the test when a difficult-to-replace broken part leaves the business’ owner (voice of Ed O’Neill) ready to trash her game. Taking to the internet in search of the rare item, they encounter a new and challenging environment, one he resists but she enthusiastically embraces.

Directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore (Johnson penned the script with Pamela Ribon) deliver a picturesque and often funny adventure that carries reassuring lessons about loyalty and forgiveness. Only the easily frightened and those who object to a couple of potty-themed puns need worry.

Cartoonish mayhem, some peril, fleeting scatological wordplay. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG — parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
