Wreck-It-Ralph is a risky but potentially brilliant idea from Walt Disney Animation, with John C. Reilly voicing the title character, an old-fashioned 8-bit videogame villain who wants to be the good guy.
The plot gives plenty of scope for cameos from various videogame characters (Roger Rabbit style), and a new batch of images show us Ralph with Q*Bert and his former enemies Coily, Slick, and Ugg, while Street Fighter characters Chun-Li and Zangief can be seen in the background. It also shows the different animation styles the film will use, mimicking the different eras of videogames.
If you’re wondering why there’s a picture of a lot of plugs, it’s because this acts as a king of Grand Central Station for the videogame characters, allowing then to move from one to another. Take a look at the pics above and below, and a synopsis of the film is at the bottom of the post. (Images via USA Today)
Here’s the synopsis: Here’s the synopsis: ‘Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his video game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack 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 Jane 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 Sarah 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?’
