From Walt Disney Studios Australia/New Zealand comes this teaser poster for Wreck-It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios. In addition to featuring Ralph, Fix-It Felix, Vanellope von Schweetz and Sergeant Calhoun, the poster also features licensed characters including Sonic the Hedgehog, Neff, Zangief, Dr. Eggman, Q-Bert and M-Bison in a pose reminiscent of the iconic scene inThe Right Stuff under the tag line ‘when the arcade closes, the fun begins.’
Walt Disney Animation Studios last night released a new television spot for its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph, out in theaters on November 2, 2012. Whereas the Paperman short that will open for the film is a real game changer, Ralph is a literal game changer as evidenced in the new commercial. The ad features plenty of new footage including an overview of Litwak’s Family Fun Center & Arcade and all other sorts of goodies.
The story of an arcade-game bad guy who embarks on a quest to prove he’s really a good guy, Wreck-It Ralph journeys through wildly diverse arcade-game worlds, including the ’80s-era, 8-bit video-game world of Fix-It Felix, Jr., the ultra-modern first-person shooter game Hero’s Duty and the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush. Helping to differentiate these worlds from one another are unique cinematography, animation, effects and music. ‘Music is another way to set the stage and make these worlds completely different,’ said producer Clark Spencer.
In conjunction with the release of the new Wreck-It Ralph trailer in honor of National Video Games Day, Walt Disney Animation Studios has also provided us with a few new hi-res stills from the film.
The new stills, which feature Fix-It Felix Jr. with the Nicelanders, Ralph with Vanellope von Schweetz, Sgt. Calhoun and ‘Hero’s Duty,’ have been added to the beginning of our gallery below. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version:
Yahoo! Movies has debuted the newest trailer for Wreck-It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Set to background music including ‘Funky Town’ by Lipps Inc and ‘Some Nights’ by FUN., the trailer takes a better look at Ralph’s plight to become more than just the bad guy as he departs from his home of thirty years to explore other options, landing him in games such as ‘Hero’s Duty’ and ‘Sugar Rush,’ where he (eventually) finds a kindrid spirit in Vanellope von Schweetz, a glitch who feels out of her place in her own world too.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has provided us with this new hi-res still from its upcoming release, Wreck-It Ralph, which debuts in theaters on November 2, 2012.
In the new still, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly), the bad guy in a 1980s arcade game, sets off on a hilarious game-hopping journey and joins forces with tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch). But as a rookie soldier, Ralph is not prepared to take on the deadly Cy-Bugs he encounters in Calhoun’s modern first-person shooter game, ‘Hero’s Duty.’
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Studios have provided us new hi-res stills from their upcoming films Wreck-It Ralph (November 2, 2012) and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie (October 5, 2012).
In the new still from Wreck-It Ralph, which has been added to the beginning of our gallery of stills below, Ralph and his fellow baddies are returning from a BadAnon meeting where the mantra ‘I am bad and that’s good, I will never be good and that’s not bad’ reigns supreme but does not seem to ring true for the would-be hero who’s seen here clutching the cherries he took after entering the Pac-Man game via Game Central Station.
Tapping stars from the big and small screens, Walt Disney Animation Studios rounds out its voice cast for “Wreck-It Ralph.” Directed by Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) and produced by Clark Spencer (“Lilo & Stitch,” “Bolt”), the hilarious arcade-game-hopping adventure adds to its current roster, which includes John C. Reilly as Wreck-It Ralph, Jack McBrayer as Fix-It Felix Jr., Jane Lynch as Sergeant Calhoun and Sarah Silverman as Vanellope von Schweetz. “Wreck-It Ralph” hits theaters November 2, 2012.
Helping to bring to life the diverse, colorful and wildly imaginative arcade-game worlds created for “Wreck-It Ralph” are the following voice cast members:
After SEGA’s iconic character Sonic the Hedgehog was spotted as the face of keeping order in Wreck-It Ralph’s Game Central Station during a clip played during the Walt Disney Studios presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, it’s only natural that life imitate art and that Ralph himself would appear alongside Sonic on the small screen as well.
As part of the marketing campaign for Walt Disney Animation’s Wreck-It Ralph, the studio plans on introducing full-scale arcade cabinet versions of the film’s ‘Fix It Felix Jr.’ game, the home of the title character. While the cabinet has appeared at both Disney D23 Expo (as a view-only demo) and most recently at E3 as a broken, non-functioning machine, San Diego Comic-Con saw the first actual working versions of the faux-c. 1982 video game manufactured by the defunct TobiKomi video game company.
