With E3 this week, it seems everyone is largely focused on video games. Walt Disney Pictures, on one hand, seems to notice this and have planned a real first public showing of their upcoming animated film Wreck-It Ralph. With a trailer planned for the video game centered adventure, Disney wants to make sure you understand just what exactly you’ll be seeing. Today, the company revealed the first four photos from the upcoming game, showing off some of the important characters that the film will involve.
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 and seeing 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.
On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
USA Today released the photos below, which you can see the characters of Ralph, Calhoun, and Vanellope. Also, one of the most interestin aspects is to how many gaming characters are seen in that first photo. We see Street Fighter, Qbert, and way off in the background you can even see some Final Fantasy Moogles. Hopefully we’ll be seeing much more as the new trailer is set to hit this week!
Wreck-It Ralph hits theaters on November 2nd.
