Walt Disney Animation Studios Wreck It Ralph (June 6, 2012) – Disney Animation has released the first official trailer for their new animated film, Wreck-It Ralph. The film will take movie-goers on an “arcade journey” with Emmy® winning director Rich Moore at the helm.
The trailer presents the film as an homage to the golden era of video game arcades, with many well-known characters starring alongside Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) such as Zangief and M. Bison from the Street Fighter series, and Dr. Robotnik/Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog. Ralph is a “bad” guy who wants to shift to the “light” side after 30 years of destroying buildings and being tossed off of residential spaces, however winds up causing more trouble than providing help to his fellow video game reality inhabitants.
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s The Simpsons, Futurama) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in Wreck-It Ralph. Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Step Brothers) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, 30 Rock), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s Glee) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, The Sarah Silverman Program) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
Wreck-It Ralph is a colorful film, filled with characters many old-school gamers will easily identify, and there is a lot about the animated feature to be excited for. Ralph is filled with comedic hijinks and toon-action that viewers will enjoy; following him in his quest to find a new purpose in his pixelated life. Ralph has promise to become another Disney classic.
Wreck-It Ralph crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
