Disney has partnered with MSN to release the first trailer for its next animated feature – “Wreck-It Ralph”. I definitely recommend clicking the little button in the right corner and watching it in HD on full screen. There are a ton of great details hidden throughout (for instance, see if you can spot Paperman). The trailer also includes a first good luck at what the movie will be about.
Wreck-It Ralph lives in the video game world. After hours all the video game characters congregate at Grand Central Station and do things like have support groups for bad guys and meet other characters (including some from classic games like Bowser and Zangief and Q-Bert). Wreck-It Ralph decides that his role as a bad guy is no fun and he wants to be a good guy, so he decides to go visit some other games to see if he can handle the new role. That’s where the adventure begins.
Rich Moore directs and brings some of the humor and fun from his runs helming Futurama and The Simpsons. Starring voices include John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch. Wreck-It Ralph will start demolishing theaters everywhere November 2nd, 2012.
