Wreck-It Ralph Theatrical Trailer – The Roger Rabbit of the Digital Age

Wreck-It Ralph is an interesting concept for a movie. It’s a video game movie that for once looks quite appealing. It also looks to be some parts Who Framed Roger Rabbit, bringing together all sorts of video game characters from existing franchises together in one movie.

But like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the licenced cameos are the icing on the cake, a story of which follows a fictional video game character and their journey to make something different about themselves. Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is the villain in the fictional game Fix-It Felix Jr., itself inspired in design of the classic video game Donkey Kong. Ralph has been doing his job for over 30 years but he’s tired of being the bad guy, he wants out. So he leaves, subsequently throwing the balance of the arcade he resides in with the rest of the video games as he searches to be the hero for a change.

Well presented by Disney, the animation is shaping up to be on the better end of thier forays into CG. They recently released the theatrical trailer that offers to build more on the initial concept and show us the voice talent they have (including Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch).

The trailer also delivers on the jokes, and with the voice talent it’s sure to be a humorous ride. The real nice touch is still the inclusion of the video game cameos. From Zangief from Street Fighter to Clyde from Pac-Man, to even a glimpse of Sonic The Hedgehog, Wreck-It Ralph is certainly a Roger Rabbit-esque romp in the universe of video games, one of scope that shall certainly be worth a watch.

Wreck-It Ralph is out in the US on 12th November 2012 and in the UK on 15th February 2013. It stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch and is produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
