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 »

If you couldn’t already tell, I’m a Pixar fanatic. To me there is something so extremely special about the Emeryville-based animation studio’s special brand of storytelling. I remember being in Hall H at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con when Andrew Stanton unveiled the beginning of WALL-E. I was beyond amazed. I never thought this type of sci-fi film could ever be made, nevermind animated. And WALL-E ended up as being one of my favorite films of 2008.
Cut to: A year later, Hall H, Comic Con 2008. Pete Docter unveils a couple sequences from Pixar’s next film, Up. I was in disbelief. I felt myself disinterested in the story/concept, something that has never happened with any of the Pixar films thus far. Don’t get me wrong, the animation looked beautiful, funny yet empathetic characters, and amazing visuals. But for some reason I just wasn’t wasn’t impressed.
