Disney 1-Ups Promotional Campaign for Wreck-It Ralph with New Poster
Here is the new poster for the Disney Pixar Animation Film to be released in November, Wreck-It-Ralph. As the release date gets closer and closer expect more promotions to be released, so far we have little to go on, aside from a handfull of publicity stills. Although Disney did come out with a full working arcade game at last years D23 meeting. (See the video below)
John C. Riley will star as Wreck-it Ralph the villain in a 8-bit video game reminiscent of Donkey Kong and Rampage. Tired of the life of a bad-guy, Wreck-it Ralph sets out to become a hero instead.
Making an appearance in the film we be video game characters past and present. Or rather, generic versions that are pretty obviously intended to be the real thing but aren’t in order to avoid copyright infringement.
Other actors and actresses slated to star are Jack McBrayer (30 Rock page) as the hero Fix-It-Felix, Jane Lynch as a Master Chief-esque Sergeant Calhoun, and Sarah Silverman as Vanellope von Schweetz.
Disney’s official synopsis sums it up pretty well:
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of 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 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 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?
The movie could very well have a trailer attached to The Avengers this summer, so be on the look-out for that.
