UPDATED: Wreck-It Ralph Clips Are Adorkable; New Retro Trailer Goes 90s,
Disney’s big tent-pole animated video game-themed movie Wreck-It Ralph is nearly upon us and the company has now released two new clips for the film to help make the wait all the more frustrating. For those of you living under a rock for the last few months, the movie tells the Toy Story-esque tale of what really goes on behind the screen in an arcade when we pesky humans are not busy playing the games. Specifically, it is focused on the eponymous Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) who is the antagonist of an 80′s arcade action game ala Donkey Kong. A nice guy at heart who is sick of being asked to play the thankless role of villain, Ralph decides to abandon his game in order to try and find someplace else in the arcade where he can be more than just the ‘bad-guy’.
So that is the basic set-up and the clips below feature Ralph after he has entered two other games in the arcade: the Halo inspired FPS Hero’s Duty and the ultra-cute Mario Kart-esque Sugar Rush. The clips also feature two of the films other main characters: the would-be racer Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman) and the tough-as-nails Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun (voiced by Jane Lynch). Check them out in action via the two clips below:
UPDATE: Also be sure to check out the just released new retro themed trailer for the movie as well. Following up on 80s style Felix Jr. one for last week, here comes a 90s themed one build around Sugar Rush. Presumably there will be one more of these set in the aughts and featuring Hero’s Duty; we will see I suppose. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
Wreck-It Ralph will arrive in North American theaters on November 2; unfortunately those of you overseas will have to wait until anywhere from December through February before the film heads your way (with UK audiences having it particularly rough with a release date of February 15). Game adaptions of the film are also headed exclusively to Nintendo systems in the form of Wii, 3DS, and DS titles.
