First Wreck-It Ralph Pics Online

First Wreck-It Ralph Pics Online

Last August, Disney used its D23 convention event to unveil an early look at its big animated hope for the year (at least one not produced by Pixar), Wreck-It Ralph. And now, courtesy of French site CineHeroes, we’re getting our first online look at imagery from the movie, which you can check out in the gallery below.

The hero of the story is Ralph (voiced by John C Reilly) who is actually the villain of his video game. But he’s sick of just being the guy who ruins buildings, only for perfect, player-controlled hero Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) to come along and clean up, winning friendship and plaudits along the way.

Ralph decides that there must be more to life, and that he wants a shot at being a hero, so when a modern, first-person shooter game is installed in his arcade, Ralph jumps at the chance to win some respect. But he wrecks everything in the new game, run by tough Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) and unleashes a dangerous new enemy who threatens every pixel around him. He’ll have to work with a troublemaking character from a kid-friendly racing game (Sarah Silverman) to try to put things right before the while arcade shuts down…

From what we saw, Wreck-It Ralph could be a gaming reference-littered delight, a knowing, loving tweak on 8-bit nostalgia and more modern, bloodthirsty shooters.

The film arrives on December 26.
