First Trailer for Wreck-It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios

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.

The full synopsis is below the jump:

D23 Expo Recap: Day 2

  • by

Hello, and welcome to the D23 Expo, Day 2 (for more expo coverage read my D23 Expo Day 1 and Alison’s D23 Expo Day 3 recaps!) where things were taken up a big ol’ notch. I know, I couldn’t believe it either.

This is where you say, “How in the world did they top the first day? Nothing could be sweeter than Kermit the Frog and Rowlf the Dog singing a tribute to the late, great Jim Henson! Nothing could be better than Dick Van Dyke in concert!

Fair enough. However, where Day 1 was a tip of the hat to Disney legends, Day 2 was about the now and the immediate future. Hence John Lasseter introducing Billy Crystal to a standing ovation (Lasseter also received a standing ovation) while discussing the upcoming Pixar film Monsters University. Also, Jason Segel coming out with Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy to discuss the new Muppet Movie. And of course, the Avengers assembling. On stage. That’s right, with the exception of the Hulk and Captain America, the entire team came out to watch a trailer that they had never seen. Robert Downey, Jr. made us watch it twice. Basically, it was a parade of celebrities (including Jennifer Garner, Sarah Silverman, and Jon Cryer, to name but a few) and Disney awesomeness (including Rich Ross, Andrew Stanton, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige, to again name but a few). My inner geek setting was at 11.
