Wreck-It Ralph Trailer Online
A bad guy wants to do good

Disney premiered a look at their latest big non-Pixar animated release, Wreck-It Ralph, back at the D23 event last year. What we saw then included a promising batch of artwork and some rough footage that left us eager to see more. Now we all can, thanks to the first trailer making its way online. Check it out below.

Wreck-It Ralph is set in an ‘80s arcade game where Ralph (John C Reilly) has become profoundly bored of his endless job. All day every day, he damages a building full of people, only for the heroic, beloved Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) to come along and repair it, to the delight of the occupants. When he’s defeated, Ralph is thrown off the building.

Wanting more out of life Ralph – overanalysing the advice from his video-game-villains’ support group – heads to Game Central Station and starts jumping around the other titles in the complex. He tries his hand at surviving a modern first person shooter, Hero’s Duty (which features the tough Sergeant Calhoun, voiced by Jane Lynch) and Sugar Rush, where he meets annoying sprite Vanellope von Schweetz, featuring the vocal cords of Sarah Silverman. Can he find his true place in the virtual world?

Though the thunder of the support group comedy may have been taken a little by Pixar’s Small Fry, that’s just one element in a bigger story. Otherwise, this looks like a geek-tastic treat for video game fans, and with Simpsons / Futurama veteran Rich Moore directing, you know the nerd comedy’s in good hands. The film will be out on February 15 next year.

Looks great, count me in. Although i do wonder what the appeal outside of gamers will be like. Also, amazing they've managed to get the rights to actual video game villains like Zangeif, Dr. Robotnik and, of course, dual axe wielding zombie. More
