Disney’s next animated movie scheduled to hit theaters November 2012 just happens to deal with an 8-Bit Donkey Kong type villain named Wreck-It Ralph. Check out the arcade cabinet that Disney presented at the Expo…
The reports of the 4 minutes of footage from the D23 Expo state that Asteroids is mentioned as well as one of the ghosts from Pac-Man making an appearance at a support group for 8-Bit villains entitled, Bad-Anon where their motto is “One game at a time.”.
Disney has released an official description of the movie:
“Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack 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 Jane 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 Sarah 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?”
