As an anonymous expert once famously put it, ‘video game characters? they’re a lot more complicated than you think.’ And thanks to Walt Disney Studios NZ, we’ve uncovered this shocking expose on the villain Wreck-It Ralph from the classic 1982 arcade video game, ‘Fix-It Felix, Jr.’ According to the documentary, filmed a la VH1’s ‘Behind the Music,’ we learn that life wasn’t always smashing for Ralph and how he broke new ground (as well as other things) trying to change his life for the better.
WHATUP FISHES?!? Amazon.com has recently begun listing BT’s ‘Partysaurus Overflow’ — as heard in the recent Toy Story Toons short, Partysaurus Rex — as being available to purchase digitally beginning October 30, 2012.
The short, which recently played in theaters prior to Finding Nemo 3D has already been made available via iTunes, Amazon and YouTube can also be viewed online for free via Disney.com (embedded below):
With just under a week to go before it releases its adaptation of ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ the video game for the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, Activision has teased us with new concept art for the game featuring the dreaded cy-bugs from ‘Hero’s Duty.’
Here we get to see several variations of the cy-bugs including a juvenile (presumably freshly hatched from its egg), a flying minion, a lamp cy-bug (which has a few special secrets of its own) and the Queen, who dwarfs 9′ tall Ralph in this art.
With nearly a month to go before the movie premiere of ‘Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess’ on November 18, leading into a full fledged series to begin in spring, Disney Store has begun making some merchandise available online.
Tinker Bell and her sister Periwinkle took to the Mainland earlier today to play host to the premiere of Secret of the Wings in New York City. The fairy twins — born of the same baby’s laugh — graciously welcomed some of the cast and crew from the film along with local celebrities and their families.
In attendance were Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Anjelica Huston (Queen Clarion), Timothy Dalton (Lord Milori), Raven Symone (Iridessa), Matt Lanter (Sled) and filmmakers Peggy Holmes and Michael Wigert. Joining them were Disney Channel star Debby Ryan, celebrity stylist Ken Paves, Miss USA Oliva Culpo, Kerry Butler, Mike Tyson, Clare Foley, Alexis Welch, Faith Wladyka, Brent Zachery and more.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new clip from its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph, titled ‘Bad Guys Second Thoughts.’ In the clip, Ralph shares his aspirations to overcome the hurdle as being known as the ‘bad guy’ and his desire to achieve recognition and a medal at the local Bad-Anon meeting. The news leads to worries that Ralph may be ‘going Turbo’ by wishing to play cards beyond those that were dealt to him.
After a brief lecture from Clyde of Pac-Man fame, the meeting adjourns with the daily bad guy affirmation: I’m bad and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. There is noone I’d rather be than me.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has provided us with several new hi-res stills and concept art from its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph. The new images have been added to the beginning of their respective galleries below. Some of these images may have been seen elsewhere before but as we have just received them, we’ve added them to complete our libraries.
Disney D23, the official fan club for The Walt Disney Company, has announced that it will be offering its members the opportunity to see Wreck-It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios during the week of October 22 for free, ahead of the film’s official opening on November 2, 2012
Metro areas included in the opportunity include: Albany, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fresno, Ft. Worth, Grand Rapids, Hartford, Honolulu, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Louisville, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Nashville, New Orleans, Norfolk (VA), Oklahoma City, Orlando, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland (OR), Raleigh/Durham, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, Tucson, Washington, D.C. and West Palm Beach.
In the clip, titled ‘Ralph Meets Vanellope,’ we (not to be confused with the royal we) pick up with Ralph (John C. Reilly) as he finds himself climbing a peppermint tree on the hunt for the medal he won in ‘Hero’s Duty’ but instead finds himself face to face with the spunky Vanellope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) who quickly puts Ralph and his patience level to the test. It’s not all for naught however as she appears to be more than willing to educate him on the dangers of the double-stripe.
A new trailer from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Wreck-It Ralph, which debuts in theaters domestically on November 2, 2012, has been making its way around the world this morning. In addition to the 8-bit treatment for the Walt Disney Pictures logo that appears at the beginning of each film, this time modified to the film’s theme. The trailer also features a variation of the ‘when the game is over,’ tagline we’ve been seeing on posters, but ends with ‘a new world comes to life’ which is a particularly odd way to describe something that’s presumably existed for decades.
