If the opening four and a half minutes of Wreck It Ralph is any indication, Disney has another big time hit on their hands. Scheduled for release November 2, 2012, Wreck It Ralph is an old school, 8-bit video game bad guy, voiced by John C. Reilly, who is tired of being bad. One night, he sneaks out of his game console in the arcade and travels to different games hoping to find one where he can be a good guy. Featuring cameos from famous video game characters, homages to newer games and more, the footage shown at the D23 Expo was very crude animation cut with storyboards. Even in that rough state, it looked and sounded like something special. Read about the scene after the jump. Read More »

In recent years, Comic-Con has been criticized for becoming too Hollywood as all the major studios would come down to San Diego and woo fans with their upcoming projects. This year, Disney — which owns both Marvel and Pixar — didn’t have a big presence there. Most surmised that was because Disney has its own version of Comic-Con, The D23 Expo, a few weeks later. That was confirmed a few weeks ago and now we have details on specifically which movies Disney will have on hand at D23, which takes place in Anaheim, CA from August 19-21. And if you thought Comic-Con was being invaded by movies, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Confirmed films to have a presence at D23 are as follows: The Muppets, John Carter, Brave, The Avengers, Frankenweenie, Oz: The Great and Powerful, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Wreck-It Ralph, and Monsters University. Attendees will also get to see the new, 3D version of The Lion King. Read more after the jump. Read More »

The Avengers might not be coming to San Diego Comic-Con, but it certainly seems like they’ll be up the street a month later. In June, Marvel Studios announced that they would not be having a panel in Hall H at Comic Con 2011, which was a bummer as their unveiling of The Avengers at Comic Con 2010 was one of the highlights. Director Joss Whedon and his all-star cast have been in production for several weeks now so, it would be easy for them to show something to comic fans of the world come July. However, Disney, who now owns Marvel, has their own version of Comic-Con just one month later so instead of bringing The Avengers to San Diego (though they are reportedly planning some kind of massive viral campaign for the event) it looks like that’s where the action will be.
Disney just announced that the head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, will be on a movie-themed panel along with John Lasseter of Pixar and the rest of the Walt Disney Studios brass in the Arena at the D23 Expo, the all-Disney Fan Event taking place August 19-21 in Anaheim, CA.
