Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph asks what if computer game characters are real? You can get a chance to find out what would happen this weekend!
“Wreck-it Ralph is a road movie,” says the screenwriter Phil Johnston. “It’s just a little more complicated with four different worlds. But whether your character’s stuck in a small town or in a land made of candy, someone has left home in search of something bigger. Ralph may go to these fantastic, diverse places, but he’s always true to himself—even as his character evolves.“
“One of the really cool things about this movie is that the characters are real—despite being arcade-game characters,” continues Johnston. “They’re real people with real feelings.”
“That emotion is what will most appeal to audiences”, says executive producer John Lasseter, “The hallmark of a Disney film is the heart and it’s the foundation of ‘Wreck-It Ralph.’ It is one of the funniest films I’ve ever been associated with—so clever and beautiful. But it’s the heart that just catches you by surprise.”
You can judge for yourself if Tom’s acting ability has overcome his difference is height from the book’s character. Here the two trailers released so far – they are a far bit different from each other so it is worth watching both.
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” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.
Wreck-it Ralph is directed by Rich Moore and produced by Clark Spencer.
Voice cast members include John C Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch
