Disney animation’s Wreck-It Ralph sounds like it’s gonna be fun, with an old style videogame baddie who wishes he could be the good guy. Now it’s been revealed that the movie will feature some Roger Rabbit style cameos from various classic videogame bad guys.
/Film reports that at CinemaCon, Disney revealed the movie would include appearances from Bowser from Super Mario Bros., Doctor Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog, Kano from Mortal Kombat, A Ghost from Pac-Man, Zangief from Street Fighter, Coily the Snake from Q*bert and several more from games by the likes of Nintendo, Midway Games and Sega.
Here’s the Wreck-If Ralph synopsis: ‘Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his 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 accidently 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?’ It’s currently due out in the UK on February 15th, 2013.
