Wreck-It Ralph

Malcolm and I visited the D23 expo last year and Disney had a little booth dedicated to a weird retro video game movie called "Wreck-It Ralph". I don't remember thinking too much about it, simply because it didn't really get what the movie was supposed to be about.

Well Disney released the Official trailer the other day, so do yourself a favour and watch it:

I haven't been this excited about a Dsney movie in a long time. I think whoever is heading up this project is really smart for tapping into a fan base that Hollywood has yet to understand. I mean seeing Bowser, M.Bison, Kano, and Dr EggMan in a support group together should be a ticket purchase right there!


  1. Wow! This looks to do for old video games what Roger Rabbit did for old cartoons! Very cool.

    1. I never really thought of it like that, but yea that's probably the best description.

      The only problem I can see is that the story will be mediocre and just feel 'meh'. I'm still looking forward to it though. Even if it is just for game cameos.

  2. I've never been looking forward to a Disney cg feature more than a Pixar feature, but that day has come. Brave looks awesome as all Pixar movies do, but it strangely has a Dreamworks, been there done that feel to it.

    I agree, this gamut of character is untapped for movies, its really cool to see some of the older ones.
    Not to crazy about the generic soundtrack though on this one, that would be my only complaint.

    1. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

      Seriously though I think it's awesome that Disney has the real characters in this movie, not some punny knock-offs.
      Maybe this will lead to a wonderful video game addition on their themeparks?... (because the whole 'Avatar' expansion is near sighted garbage. Yeah I said it.)

    2. YA! You go gi... guy
      I agree Avatar was yesterdays news before it came out, nobody cares about it. Is there an avatar fan club? No. I don't see the appeal in that movie one bit, not an ounce.
      Wow, I kinda went off there.

    3. yeah, but you didn't call it "near sighted garbage" therefore I win.

      I hope no one who loves Avatar reads this. Oh wait.

  3. Take that Avatar, just had a discussion about how lame the the Avatar expansion idea is. Really hoping it fizzles out. "near sighted garbage" couldn't have put it better myself.
