So I know what you're thinking. You stumbled onto the wrong site again. These guys are writing about Disney movies now... what's next Bambi coverage?
But guess what? You're in the right place because Wreck-It Ralph is a new movie from Disney and it is going to feature 8-bit video gaming (and one can hope an 8-bit soundtrack!).
Disney isn't anything new to the gaming movie scene. If you've seen Tron or Tron: Legacy they have done a good job creating some cult classics based on computers and gaming. The plot of Wreck-It Ralph , as stated at the D23 Expo, is detailed below:
"Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. 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 trouble-making '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?"
After researching this movie, I found a cool quote from Director Rich 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."
With an all-star cast and a release date of November 12, 2012, Wreck-It Ralph looks like it could be an actual GOOD gaming movie... which is a rarity these days if you ask me. I personally love 8-bit stuff and Disney movies so next November can't come soon enough.
