Wreck-it Ralph trailer wants to be good

Posted by CB Droege

Disney has released the first trailer for its upcoming video game film, Wreck-it Ralph.

We’ve been hearing about this film for a couple years now, but was forced to make do with the same poster of Ralph’s pixelated face to show us what it might look like or even be about. So it’s great to finally get a good look at the long-awaited movie:

And the film looks outstanding.

When I first heard the concept for this movie, all I simply couldn’t imagine that it would be any good, but this looks very clever, and with the talent they found to voice the characters, my expectations for the film are suddenly very high.

We’ve also got the following synopsis:

Ralph (Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (McBrayer), the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?

Personally, I’m looking forward to this one now a lot more than the other upcoming Disney CGI adventure, Brave, which is looking more and more juvenile with each promotion.

Wreck-it Ralph hits theaters November 2nd, 2012.
