Disney's Wreck-It Ralph: If Tron and Toy Story Had an Adorable Baby

Illustration for article titled Disneys iWreck-It Ralph/i: If Tron and Toy Story Had an Adorable Baby

Remember those 8-bit arcade games you loved so much as a kid? Disney's got a movie coming out this November called Wreck-It Ralph that imagines what the characters are getting into when you're not feeding these machines quarters. Today it released the first trailer. And it's a blast.

It centers on Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) a smash-happy villan that doesn't want to be the bad guy anymore. Frustrated with the job he's been doing for three decades, Ralph escapes his pixelated world and jumps into a first-person shooter, and of course chaos ensues. Though most of the characters are completely imagined, they seem to be based on titles you've probably played—Donkey Kong, Halo, and others. Then again, there are some you'll recognize, like Zangief and a Pac-Man ghost. It's a light-hearted, nostalgic journey through the various styles and aesthetics of different games—kind of a similar concept as Toy Story, but for gaming. [MSN via Gawker]

Wow, Disney pulled out all the stops buying loan rights to these fictional characters: M.Bison, Zangief, Dr. Robotnik, Bowser, Pac-Man, Q-Bert, Sarah Silverman. It's quite a feat.

Also notice a Beholder in the Bad-Anon Meeting, but I can't place some of the other ones, like the ninja, the blue woman in the red dress, the Kano looking guy, or the Yellow Robot. I wonder if they're from actual games, or just constructed for the film...
