    After Prometheus, I’m more excited about this movie than anything else coming out. Looks to pay homage to some real classics, while keeping high Disney standards. This may even help explain to my daughter why her father still loves the classics.

    Had seen preview images a while back, but after seeing this trailer, I’m a pixelated burst of anticipation.

    And I see and hear some Popeye, Rampage, Mario Bros., Crazy Climber (2600) amidst a wave of retro flashback in just the first few seconds.

  3. In the first few seconds of the Wreck-It Ralph trailer we can certainly see a Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man arcade cabinet, to the left and right of the Wreck-It Ralph cabinet.

    Reminds me of the one season of Reboot, where they hopped from one computer system to another via the games.

    Q*BERT!!! Heh, I just realized that the “still” image for the video shows the backs of AC power sockets for the different games. OMG, this is going to be awesome… :D
