Here's a simple way to pitch Disney's newest animated movie, Wreck-It Ralph: It's like Toy Story, but with video games. Instead of physical toys coming to life when their owners aren't around, it's about the lives of video game characters when their players aren't around. And as with Pixar's most beloved franchise, Disney looks to have spared no expense when it comes to making sure its fantasy world of video games is filled with real world gaming icons.
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 andseeing 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.
