There are some potentially stunning movies coming out for the rest of 2012 but I’m not sure any will make me squeal in my seat twice in a minute like Wreck-It Ralph just did at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. During the Disney panel, which also featured Frankenweenie, Oz The Great and Powerful and The Lone Ranger, Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore came into Hall H – along with co-stars John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman, made a few announcements and showed 10 minutes of the film. A good portion of it had already screened at more specialized events – the D23 Expo and CinemaCon 2012 – but this was its true coming out party. There was more footage, more finished footage and pure joy to be had with both. After the jump, read about the footage screened from the November 5th release. Read More »

Since Disney’s D23 Expo in 2011, Wreck-It Ralph has been one of our most anticipated films. The Disney Animation Studios production is an ode to old school video games as the bad guy in a popular game gets fed up with his lot in life and escapes to other machines in the arcade. That character, Ralph of the title, will encounter all kinds of classic characters you know and be voiced throgh the vocal stylings of John C. Reilly.
Up until now, all we’d seen of the film is some concept art and a teaser poster that showed what Ralph looked like in 8-bit form. Now, one site has found both an image of Ralph from the movie, and another showing his love interest, Vanellope von Schweetz, voiced by Sarah Silverman. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
The second I heard the premise of Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, it immediately rose to the top of my anticipated list. Ralph is a large 8-bit video game bad guy, voiced by John C. Reilly, who is tired of being bested by his in game nemesis and good guy, Fix-It Felix (30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer). Not content with always being the villain, Ralph breaks out of his game and travels around the arcade, proving himself a hero in other games.
The first footage from the film was revealed at D23 Expo and a few months back, some concept art expanded on that. Now the teaser poster for the November 2 release has popped online. Check it out below. Read More »
Last year Disney announced the video game-inspired film Wreck-It Ralph, which is the new incarnation of a project called Reboot Ralph that the studio was toying with for a couple years.
Starring John C. Reilly as the voice of Ralph, the film follows the title character, an 8-bit video game Bad Guy who dreams of being a hero. In order to change peoples’ perception of him, he travels to another video game land to confront the first person shooter character Sergeant Calhoun, voiced by Jane Lynch. But things don’t work out quite as Ralph planned.
The only footage shown for the film so far was unspooled at D23 last year. Now we’ve got a few images that show a bit of what the film has to offer. Check them out below. Read More »
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 »

Reboot Ralph has been an unknown quantity on Disney’s slate for the past year. Announced in 2010 as a May 2013 release, the film was bumped up to November 2 2012 earlier this year. But all we really knew was the title, and the fact that it was a reworked version of an old Disney project called Joe Jump, which was about “an outdated video game character who’s been left behind by the march of technology.”
Well, Reboot Ralph has now become Wreck-It Ralph, which is now about “an arcade game Bad Guy determined to prove he can be a Good Guy.” The first cast has been announced, too: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch. A few more details are after the break. Read More »
