New International Trailer and Preview Clip from Wreck-It-Ralph Will Make You Miss the Arcade
10.12.12 by Ryan
An arcade was a place where kids used to play video games, kids.
One of our most anticipated releases in November is Disney's upcoming 3-D animated Wreck-It Ralph, which celebrates and parodies video games from the 1980s to today, but in a way that doesn't require you to be a huge gamer (though it will help you to recognize the myriad of video game character cameos). The movie follows fictional video game character Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly), who is questioning his place in the pixelated video game world. Past trailers have focused on Ralph's dissatisfaction with Fix-It Felix, Jr., the 80s-inspired, Rampage meets Donkey Kong video game that has been his home for the past thirty years, but a new, international trailer reveals more of his friendship with Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman), a "glitch" from another video game, the candy-filled Sugar Rush. The result is going to make you want to grab some quarters and run to the nearest arcade (metaphorically speaking, of course).

Besides the international trailer, there's also a new preview clip that reveals Ralph's first meeting with Vanellope, which doesn't start off as friendly as their relationship will become.
And while we're on a Wreck-It Ralph roll, here's a retro arcade "commercial" for Fix-It-Felix Jr., the video game console were Ralph lives, which was supposedly made in 1982.
Wreck-It Ralph was directed by Rich Moore (former animation director on The Simpsons and Futurama) and features the voice talents of Jack MacBrayer (30 Rock) as Fix-It Felix and Alan Tudyk (Serenity, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) as King Candy.
