I have been waiting for this movie since I heard about it last year. The central plot is simple; video game antagonist’s desire to be a protagonist. The exciting part is that Player One (John C. Reilly) jumps from video game to video game, encountering characters that I have grown up with, like Pac-Man and Q-Bert. The movie is put out by Disney (sans-Pixar), but I won’t hold that against them…The trailer looks great.
Here is the official synopsis:
[quote style=”1″]Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidently unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?[/quote]
Movie opens 11/12/12 and also stars Jane Lynch, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer.
