This fall will mark three years since Wreck-It Ralph hit the big screen, and we’ve yet to hear any updates on progress towards making a sequel. Last we heard from composer Henry Jackman was that a story was in the works, but that’s all he could say.
As of now, we’re still not sure when the sequel will get off the ground, but it sounds like fans don’t need to be worried that it won’t happen. Wreck-It Ralph voice actor John C. Reilly recently appeared at the Galway Film Fleadh in Ireland, and confirmed that he’s signed on for a sequel to the video game based adventure.

Disney loves to scatter Easter eggs around its animated films, and its first Marvel movie was not exempt. If you were looking closely, and you might’ve spotted Frozen‘s Hans and Olaf, Wreck-It Ralph, Stitch (as in Lilo &), Bolt, and more around Big Hero 6‘s San Fransokyo.
But there’s one more that’s escaped our notice until now. Tucked into the background of one scene is another character from Wreck-It Ralph. Check out the Big Hero 6 Wreck-It Ralph Easter egg after the jump. Read More »

Wreck-It Ralph may not have been a box office juggernaut on the order of Frozen, but it was still a pretty big hit when it landed in 2012. Talk of a potential Wreck-It Ralph sequel began swirling not long afterward, but there’s been no official confirmation that any such movie would actually happen — until now.
Composer Henry Jackman has revealed that a Wreck-It Ralph 2 is being written as we speak, although it remains a mystery when we’ll actually get to see the movie. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Disney’s latest family musical, Frozen, is in theaters now and quickly gaining a sterling reputation. Some are comparing it to the classic musicals of the 1990s such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast or The Lion King. Others say it’s better than any film Pixar has released in years. I say it’s probably somewhere in the middle, a delightful Disney animated film that has plenty to remember, but isn’t without an issue or two. [You can watch what is arguably the film’s best moment here.]
As is the case with most Disney movies, which take so long to make, animators love to populate some of the busier frames with Easter Eggs. In Frozen, there are at least three biggies. We’ve seen one that relates back to Tangled, but Wreck-It Ralph, and even an appearance of Mickey Mouse himself are in there, too. Check them out below. Read More »

During pre-production on Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, the film’s director Rich Moore had four games in mind for the film: Fix-It Felix Jr., Hero’s Duty, Sugar Rush and Extreme Easy Living 2. The final game, sort of The Sims meets Grand Theft Auto, was deemed superfluous and shelved, possibly for a sequel or possibly forever. With the film now on DVD and Blu-ray, Disney has released a storyboarded deleted scene set inside Extreme Easy Living 2, giving an idea of what it would have been like. Check it out below, along with some quotes from the director about the game and why it was cut. Read More »

Ever wonder what happened to Garlan Hulse? You remember — the twelve-year-old Fix-It Felix champ whose rise to fast fame was cut short when Kent Zborski smashed his record just weeks later? No, of course you don’t, because Hulse and Zborski never existed and Fix-It Felix Jr. is a made-up game from Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. But if Hulse had been a real person, what might have happened to him after Zborski’ rendered him irrelevant?
In the King of Kong-esque mockumentary Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives, director Rich Moore “discovers” that the one-time child star has spiraled steadily downward in 30 years since, and now drifts between odd jobs to support his mother. But there is a glowing ray of hope coming up his path — Hulse has decided to reclaim his position as the Fix-It Felix Jr. record-setter. Watch the short film after the jump.

Kial Natale decided to try to recreate Disney Animation’s Wreck It Ralph, in live action, telling the story of the entire movie in under 60 seconds. The resulting short film is actually pretty awesome, showing you what all those sweded videos could look like with a lot of work and computer effects and compositing knowledge & skills. Watch the short now embedded after the jump. You really have no excuse, its only 59 seconds long (plus a 2 second credit card).
