Wreck-It Ralph is Disney’s new movie — coming to theaters Nov. 2 — and it looks great.
It’s about a video game character, Ralph, who has been doing his “job” for the past 30 years or so, and is ready for a change. He decides to leave his game and try to find a position in another. However, he doesn’t realize that video games have become quite so violent in the intervening years.
Ralph is voiced by John C. Reilly (Step Brothers), and the voice cast also includes Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer (TV’s 30 Rock), Jane Lynch (TV’s Glee), Mindy Kaling (TV’s The Office) and more.
This movie intrigues me for a few reasons.
It kind of reminds me of Tron, though in this case the character is already inside the video game, rather than stepping into it. The video game Ralph inhabits is an “old school” game, too — think Pacman or the old Super Mario Brothers — and I like the feel of those; it will bring you back to a time before everyone had handheld video game devices, back to when you had to go to the arcade to play your favorite games.
Wreck-It Ralph will be playing in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters. Check out the trailer below.
