Will normal Wii remotes work on the Wii U?

I read that you will be able to use Wii motion Plus controllers on the Wii U but did not see anything about if the first normal Wii remote controllers will also work or not.
Will only Wii motion Plus controllers work on the Wii U or will the non motion plus controllers work too?

Yes, anything that works for the Wii will work for the WiiU.

If its been confirmed that Wii Remote Plus, Wii Nunchuck, and the Balance Board will work on the Wii U it feels like they should have told us if the first non motion plus controllers will work too or not.
Im asking this because i only see the Wii motion plus being mentioned.

Thank you for the link. :)
They did not mention the normal Wii remote at the places i visited.
Happy to hear that i can keep all my Wii controllers and still use them in the future on my Wii U.
