Today we get our first official look at Wreck-It-Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios which tells the story of the title character, an old 8-bit arcade game villain, who wishes for nothing more than to be recognized for the hero he believes himself to be. Ralph attempts to find solace in a support group for misunderstood gaming villains where they speak the mantra ‘I am bad and that’s good. I’ll never be good and that’s not bad.’
The concept art first came to us from Mexican site CinePremiere which exclusively released it. The images feature: Ralph on his pile of rocks that he calls home as he looks longingly at the home of the game’s hero Fix-It Felix; a ‘screengrab’ from one the games Ralph finds himself in, a first person shooter called ‘Hero’s Duty;’ and the candy-filled world of ‘Sugar Rush.’ Click on each of the images to expand it to its larger size.

Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in Wreck-It Ralph. Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer), the ‘good guy’ star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video
games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game ‘Hero’s Duty.’ But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, ‘Sugar Rush,’ whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
Wreck-It Ralph crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D® in select theaters.
