The lights are on
Disney may not be succeeding with its forays into the video game market, but the next Disney Animated film will be taking on that medium to hopefully much stronger results.
First Showing reports that Disney unveiled its November 2012 film Wreck-It Ralph at the D23 Expo. Wreck-It Ralph will follow the adventures of the titular arcade game villain, who will be voiced by John C. Reilly. Rival Fix It Felix Jr. will be tasked with repairing damage done by Ralph and voiced by Jack McBrayer. As the movie progresses, Ralph will visit various other arcade games, so there should be plenty of nostalgia for long-time gamers.
With over a year until Wreck-It Ralph's release, there's no footage and limited info available, but those who attended D23 Expo and got to see some early storyboard footage seemed very excited. It also seems like the ideal movie for a simple XBLA/PSN tie-in, so here's hoping Disney gets working on that soon.
Filming what, featuring who? That should be the greatest reason to see it.
I want Disney movies like the classics, not stuff like this, but whatever Disney wants. At least the theme park is still good.
This sounds kinda interesting. It might not be terrible. It's a wait and see.
Didn't you already share this like....a while ago?
Great, an excuse for Disney to stereotype gamers.
I love Disney and I like the idea behind this. Though, I thought this was announced already and wasn't it originally called Reboot Ralph?
This does not sound like a suitable feature length film idea... but John C Riley as the lead is a good sign. I want to hear some Steve Brule-esque acting.
From what I've heard of this out of D23, I'm excited :)
Disney has done okay with keeping up with the times, I hope this turns out well for them.
Sounds cool. Mayhaps a video game movie that is not actually based on a video game will be decent.
Great. We know how movies like gamer turned out.
no... just no.... while they go waste thousands of $'s on this ill be getting some epic lulz from trolling true capitalist radio...
And this is relevant how? Sorry I just don't really care. It's about a hypothetical game and really just doesn't look all that good/interesting/appealing to me.
