‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Trailer Brings Classic Video Game Characters to Life

In ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ the upcoming film from Walt Disney Animation, John C. Reilly voices the title character, a 8-bit video game villain who wants to be a good guy.

Ralph, described as being 9-foot-tall and 643-pounds, is stuck knocking down buildings in a video game called Fix-It Felix Jr.  (Which looks like a mix between the arcade classics ‘Donkey Kong Jr.’ and ‘Rampage.’)

After discussing his feelings of inadequacy stemming from being programmed to only destroy in a therapy group made up of other video game villains, Ralph decides to escape from his pixelated confines. Check out the first trailer for ‘Wreck-it Ralph.’

There is definitely a ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ vibe going on there, with real-life video game characters like Q*Bert, Browser and the ghosts from ‘Pac Man’ making appearances.

But will Wreck-it Ralph do for video games what Roger Rabbit, an enormous hit in 1988, did for cartoons? Ir even what ‘Toy Story’ did for classic playthings like Mr. Potato Head and Barbie?

‘Wreck-it Ralph’ is directed by Rich Moore of ‘Simpsons’ and ‘Futurama’ fame, and hits theaters November 22nd, 2012. Are you excited for it?
