Wreck-It Ralph Reveals The Characters They Couldn't Get At Comic Con Panel
Wreck-It Ralph was probably the lowest profile film that Disney brought to Comic Con today-- it doesn't have a household name director like Tim Burton or Sam Raimi behind it, and it's a totally original idea, which means there's no built-in fan base clamoring for it. But it took about half a second for Wreck-It Ralph win over the audience, and by the time the orange ghost from Pac-Man and Pong made a cameo, you could feel an entire audience marking off their calendars for the movie's release.
Wreck-It Ralph, as you might have learned in the first trailer-- is set in the world of video games, kind of like Tron if it were about actual video game characters you know. John C. Reilly stars as the titular Ralph, the villain in an old-school 8-bit game called Fix-It Felix Jr. Ralph, as we see in a hilarious scene of a Bad Anon meeting between the villains of various games, decides he doesn't want to be a bad guy anymore, so he travels through various games, which we saw in one scene brings him to a world entirely made of candy where characters build race cars. Like you do.
There are a staggering amount of video game in-jokes in the movie, from seeing the orange Pac-Man ghost turn blue when he's angry to the very name of the Call of Duty-style shooting game, Hero's Duty (Sarah Silverman's child character makes a lot of doody jokes, don't you worry). And it's kind of stunning how many characters they manage to include-- though in the Q&A, director Rich Moore declined to say exactly who they couldn't get the rights for: "Why would I talk about that certain mustachioed plumber guy. And his brother, who wanted more money." So you can probably cross Mario and Luigi off your wish list of characters to see in this movie.
Near the end of the panel Moore announced that they'd secured electronic musician Skrillex to provide the music for the Hero's Duty section of the film, and the crowd seemed only mildly enthusiastic. But it didn't really matter-- Wreck-It Ralph had already done more than enough to get the crowd on board, selling hard to the genre-loving audience and establishing the foundation of a story that tweaks the hero's quest for self-discovery by making it about the bad guy.
Wreck-It Ralph is set for release November 2.
Hindi ako gamer kaya ang kilala ko lang dun sa trailer eh yung kalaban nila Pacman and Super Mario
Nevertheless, I like the concept of this movie!
Can't wait to see this one
Na try nyo na ba laruin yung Fix It Felix sa Disney website? It's fun
Wow! This movie will be shown here ahead from the U.S release! It wil be shown here on Oct. 31. A first for a Disney movie in a long time as the last couple of year we get Disney movies two to three months from the US release!
excited, sana maganda.. para manuod ako sa sinehan..
just saw it today, it was great. I just love Vanillope, she was annoying at first but she really grew on me.
it was good. plus the cameos were awesome. this movie changed my mind about 3d movies, now, btw. the colors are now brighter and the 3d effects largely works.
espcially yung sa 3d sa arcade cabinets and the screen. so reminded me of those game and watches na parang arcade,
Fix It Felix Jr was definitely an homage to Donkey Kong Jr. Though in this case, the Jr was the protagonist.
I can really totally buy the rules of the universe the videogame characters are in.
The movie was great. I laughed a lot especially at the pop references. The short was amazing too.
Trailer pa lang panalo na! I was a huge console gamer growing up and I could easily identify the more geekier references like the robot from Cyborg Justice
Will watch this tomorrow
It was really awesome, the animation was great as well as the story.
A must-see movie and everyone will enjoy this even not a fan of video games.
Wreck-It Ralph (B+) - Sure it panders to long time gamers but, unlike that animated Ogre movie that references nothing but pop-culture references, Wreck-It Ralph is creative and charming enough to stand on its own. With likable characters and imaginative world living inside the electrical currents of an arcade store, it's nice to know in-house Disney can still produce some quality animation.
^ John Lassiter produced it. Might as well call it a pixar film. and this was definitely better than Brave.
Saw this movie today and it was really awesome. Ok yung mga cameo ni zangief kahit si ryu hehehe. Ang kulit n vanillope at yung sugar rush. Very touching then yung stroy ni vanillope at ralph
mas maganda sana kung ang majority ng setting ay hindi sa S.R.
