Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV's "The Simpsons," "Futurama") take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in "Wreck-It Ralph." Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "Step Brothers") is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, "30 Rock"), the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy.  He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero.

But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, "The Sarah Silverman Program") from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade.

Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it's too late?

"Wreck-It Ralph" crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3DTM in select theaters.

Keep an eye out for the trailer for this Walt Disney Animation Studios release which debuts in theaters this Friday in front of DreamWorks Animation's "Madagascar 3".


  • This looks absolutely terrible.  This movie already exists in forms of Despicable Me and Monster's Inc.

  • The Trailer is awful. Disney is really trying to copy the Dreamworks Animation game-plan putting names of A list actors doing voice work in the trailer, playing Flo Rida's "Good Feeling". There trying so hard with jokes that it's not funny. I'm sure some hardcore gamers will get a kick out of remembering the 8-bit playing days but not me. I won't be seeing this.
