The trailers for ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ have already got me on the hook to see the movie, but with these two new marketing items that Disney has released, I’m now ready to just hand over my money.
Disney has unveiled the first clip from the film which features Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) meeting Vanellope von Schweets (voiced by Sarah Silvermn) for the first time. The clip, which does not contain any spoilers, is cute and sweet and in true Disney from has that charming humor that seems to be a trademark of Disney’s animated movies.
After the film is a rather cute fake retro commercial for the video game ‘Fix-It Felix, Jr.’ If watching the “commercial” has given you the urge to play the ‘Wreck it Ralph’ game, you can head over to the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ site and experience the gameplay yourself.
Of course the question of the day is whether or not this film will be able to appeal to both the old school video players and the ultra-sophisticated gamers of today. We won’t know until the movie comes out next month but so far the results look promising.
See for yourself with the video below!
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?
