First Look: Ten Photos for Disney's 'Wreck-It Ralph' Animated Movie
"Game unplugged, please help!" says the message scribbled on the little guy's sign. If you haven't been lucky enough to catch one of the early presentations of the opening scenes to Disney's upcoming animated movie Wreck-It Ralph, all you've been able to see up until now is concept art and a teaser poster. Well, thanks to USA Today (via The Film Stage) we've got a look at four new high-res photos from Wreck-It Ralph, which features the voice of John C. Reilly as Ralph, the bad guy in an 8-bit video game who goes on an adventure in the arcade. There's a good look at him and more characters. "He is the greatest guy at destroying things."
"But then he heads off to be a soldier in a first-person shooter," Reilly says. There will definitely be arcade units shipped out, too. "On top of a Wreck-It Ralph game, there will be an arcade version of Fix-It Felix, Jr. that will pop up around the country, including your favorite pizza parlor." Here's the new batch of photos:
First up, Ralph is at the Grand Central Power Strip, which (below) is found inside the arcade. It's a meeting point for all of the characters, where he's chatting with out-of-work characters from an unplugged Q*bert.
Along the way, he meets Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman) in the game Sugar Rush.
Finally, he encounters the character Sergeant Calhoun, voiced by Jane Lynch, in the first-person shooter.
Update: We've added a selection of six more new photos from Wreck-It Ralph, which were recently added to the official website. I love all the shots of "Sugar Rush", the racing game where Ralph meets Vanellope.
From USA Today, Ralph is a "vintage 8-bit brute who has been bashing buildings for 30 years, only to have the well-mannered namesake hero of Fix-It Felix, Jr. (30 Rock's Jack McBrayer) constantly repair all his demolition handiwork." This sounds, and looks, like a whole lot of fun. Watch the first official trailer here.
Rich Moore (who has helmed episodes of "Futurama" and "The Simpsons") is directing Wreck-It Ralph, the story of an 8-bit video game character struggling with his own villainous identity with the world of arcade games. John C. Reilly voices the titular character who tries to be a hero, but ends up unleashing a deadly enemy who just might destroy every game in the arcade. Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman all lend their voices to the film which is slated to hit theaters on November 2nd in 3D. Looking good?
