Walt Disney Animation Studio’s has announced a new theatrical animated film Wreck-It Ralph which will the 52nd theatrical release after Winnie the Pooh. The film stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayre in this 2012 3D computer-animated feature film. The director is from former Simpsons and Futurama veteran director Rich Moore who is making his directorial debut about an arcade game bad guy who is determined to prove to (video game) world that he can be a good guy.
Disney Press Release:
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
The film is sounding very interesting especially when a interview with the director brought up the following quote:
Rich Moore Quote:
I love the idea of a very simple 8-bit video game character struggling with the complex question: ‘isn’t there more to life than the role I’ve been assigned?’ In his quest for the answer, we journey with our hero through three visually distinct video game worlds.
This 8-bit throwback could prove to have some very interesting character and background design. The film is set to have cameos by different famous video game characters as Ralph travels to different games hoping to find one where he can be the good guy. Last year at the D23 Expo SlashFilm witnessed a very rough cut of the films beginning which was set in 1983, including a Donkey Kong Jr. level and the evolution of the arcade over the next three decades. The film then shows Ralph going to a bad guy support group including a ghost from Pac Man, Bowser from Super Mario and even a Big Daddy from Bioshock.
