As an avid fan of classic coin-op arcades, nothing got me more excited than hearing that Disney was working a movie based on the world of the coin-op games. The film titled Wreck-It Ralph was announced to those who attended the D23 Expo last year, and even though the film was in the early stages of development, the concept art for the film looked amazing. Then there was the comedic cast that would be lending their voice talents for the film. Now we got the first teaser for Wreck-It Ralph and you can watch it below.
Before the movie footage starts we get a short introduction from the voice of Wreck-It Ralph himself, John C. Reilly. The trailer gives a somewhat short synopsis of the life of Ralph who is a video game character tired of doing the same villainy for the past 30 years. A lot of the it features the concept art that was seen at the D23 Expo come to life.: The jumping between worlds, Ralph hilariously being tossed over a building, and Ralph attending a villains anonymous meeting with some of video games most classic villains of the past and a few generic ones as well.
Here’s the premise of the film…
An 8-bit video-game character attempts to shed his bad-guy image by escaping into a popular first-person shooter, but inadvertently wreaks havoc in the video-game universe by freeing a digital villain.
Directed by Rich Moore, Wreck-It Ralph also features the voices of Jane Lynch, Sarah Silverman, and Jack McBrayer and will open in theaters on November 2, 2012.
