Stuck in a rut? Feeling unappreciated? Working at a dead-end job? Hey, you're not the only one. Meet Wreck-It Ralph, the title star of Walt Disney Animation Studios' latest 3D CGI-animated feature. After thirty years of wrecking stuff as the villain of the Fix-It Felix, Jr. 8-bit video game, Wreck-it Ralph has had enough of faithfully doing his job only so that Fix-It Felix can play the hero and get all of the accolades. Longing for more, Wreck-It Ralph decides to leave his game and embark on a journey to discover whether he has what it takes to be a hero or if he's destined to be the villain.
If you've ever been a gamer, Wreck-It Ralph is the movie for you. The trailer alone is so chock-full of "celebrity" cameos — Bowser from Super Mario Bros., Clyde from Pac-Man, Neff from Altered Beast, Dr. Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog, Kano from Mortal Kombat, Zangief from Street Fighter, Q*Bert from, well, Q*Bert — it's like a trip down video game memory lane.
Here's the synopsis:
Ralph is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, the good guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Wreck-It Ralph meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
Wreck-It Ralph was directed by two-time Emmy-winning director Rich Moore (The Simpsons, Futurama). Voice talents include John C. Reilly (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) as Wreck-It Ralph, Jack McBrayer (NBC's 30 Rock), Jane Lynch (Fox's Glee) as Sergeant Calhoun, and Sarah Silverman (The Muppets) as Vanellope von Schweetz.
