Wreck-It Ralph

"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?

    Hope they show many more video game characters like pac man, donkey kong, etc. and not run into copyright problems
    • Joshua-gedge
      There's no way to magically avoid copyright problems, everything must be cleared.
    • ghostfacemillah
      They have Bowser, a Pac Man ghost and a bunch of other villains in Ralph's Bad-Anon meeting. Looks pretty fun!
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Oh man, my husband will suffer a seizure if they take advantage of all the potential for nerdy game references in this. This is gonna be so cool! The movie, not the seizure. =P

    John Lasseter's "fabulous" attempt for Disney to appeal to all people falls flat. I'm not a video game guy, and this film seems to be made exclusively for boys/men who sit on their fat butts all day in front of a screen (i.e., John Lasseter.) 
    • SuicidalOptimist
      Haha, come on, you don't really believe that stereotype to still be true, do you? Not all gamers are fat, jobless slobs living in their mom's basement, additionally, there are shit tons of female gamers out there as well. That aside, I do agree that this film will be much more appealing to people who know about games, old school arcade characters and have at least a basic grasp on the gaming lingo. Most really young kids or older adults probably won't have a clue what npc or fps even stands for, so the joke's lost on them already.

      You're an idiot. Everybody plays videogames. Maybe think before you speak next time. Douche.

      Wow, dude. I'm neither fat nor a man. I'm also a college graduate with a full-time job and a husband who runs 15-20 miles every other week, depending on his mood. We just got finished with the co-op levels on Portal 2 and I recently watched him shoot his way through Spec Ops: The Line while knitting some hats for charity. Think before you generalize. Also, John Lasseter is a genius.
