Walt Disney Animation Studios today announced the CG comedy adventure “Reboot Ralph” will now be titled Wreck-It Ralph. The film is directed by Rich Moore and features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch:
Some of us are born to be bad, but that doesnt mean we have to like it. Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TVs The Simpsons, Futurama) take moviegoers on a hilarious, video-game-hopping journey in Wreck-It Ralph, the story of an arcade game Bad Guy determined to prove he can be a Good Guy. Produced by Clark Spencer (Lilo & Stitch, Bolt) and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch, the CG comedy adventure will hit theaters on Nov. 2, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.
Says Moore, I love the idea of a very simple 8-bit video game character struggling with the complex question: isn’t there more to life than the role I’ve been assigned? In his quest for the answer, we journey with our hero through three visually distinct video game worlds. It’s unlike anything anyone’s seen before, and I’m thrilled to be to creating it here at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his games 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 planwin a medalbut soon wrecks everything, and accidently unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralphs 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 its Game Over for the entire arcade?
