This one scene alone should be enough to make you want to see this movie. I thought it was an elaborate fan-made trailer, but no. It’s a real Disney movie. Say, what!?
Oh, yeah. That’s a videogame bad guy support group. Some generic bad guys there, but then you look to the right and you see Bowser from Super Mario, Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog, M. Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter and the back of Clyde the Ghost from Pac-Man. Such sorcery has not been seen since Warner Brothers and Disney IPs were seen together in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”.
Wreck-it Ralph tells the story of Wreck-it Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly), the villain in the arcade videogame Fix-it Felix Jr., who has grown sick of his job playing the bad guy for 30 years and wants to prove that he has the stuff to be the good guy for once. The trailer also features other videogame cameos such as the Q*Bert, Chun-Li from Street Fighter, Kano from Mortal Kombat and Neff from Altered Beast.
The last thing that came close was when Shigeru Miyamoto personally gave permission for the theme to The Legend of Zelda to be used in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. That movie was also riddled with plenty of video game sound bites as well.
Wreck-it Ralph debuts in the US on November 2, 2012.
