Yesterday we brought you the first viral video for Wreck-It Ralph, a ‘behind the music’-style expose on Wreck-It Ralph titled ‘Behind the Screens.’ Today, Walt Disney Animation Studios has shared its second video, ‘The Fix-It Felix Hammer by Fix-It Felix, Jr.’ which is a take on the classic ‘as seen on tv’ ads. It’s not quite as spectacular in our opinion and we’re not sure why they didn’t jump on the opportunity to call the ‘Mini Fix-It Felix Jr.’ the ‘Fix-It Felix Jr. Junior’ instead, but hey.
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.
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.
