Disney has released a new trailer for their upcoming animated video game-inspired film, Wreck-It Ralph. It features John C. Reilly as a Donkey Kong-esque character who is sick of being the unappreciated villain, so he goes “game jumping” in order to become a hero.
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack 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 Jane Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan — win a medal — but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade.
Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah 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 it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
Wreck-It Ralph is directed by Rich Moore and will hit November 2nd in the US, and February 15th in the UK.
