Wreck-It Ralph Trailer

For the last few years, Disney has come back in a huge way.  "The Princess and the Frog", "Tangled", "Winnie the Pooh" - three great movies in three years.  They have a better batting average than Pixar in the same time!  But Disney's newest movie is really exciting:

Yeah, that was Bowser, Robotnik, Kano, a Pacman Ghost, and a "House of the Dead" zombie sitting around in a group-therapy session.  Oh, and don't forget M. Bison - this is delicious!  And there's Q-Bert.  And there's Jane Lynch playing a blond woman in a robot suit fighting aliens (who totally is not Samus Aran, don't even think that, STOP IT!)  And Disney's version of Samus isn't humping some jackhole's leg begging for authorization to use her guns, gotta love that.

All in all this movie appears to be the best celebration of video game history ever.  "Wreck-It Ralph" features actual cameos from real video game characters, entirely unchanged.  Remember, the last time Bowser appeared in a movie, he looked like, well, this.  Basically, its the video game equivalent of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", and that's just awesome.  We get to travel along the whole history of gaming, right up to the future when Ralph says it all with one sentence:  "when did video games get so violent?"  Everything about this looks amazing.

Of course, this prompted mot gamers to react in their usual fashion:  to begin bitching that Zangief from "Street Fighter" isn't actually a villain.  (Sigh.................)


  1. Wow, I need to see this! November 2nd is too far away...

  2. Disney AND Video Games characters from my childhood?! It's like Kingdom Hearts all over again. But should I be ashamed that I can name every character to their game?

    BTW: How was California?

  3. Damn, I might watch a movie in the theaters for once.

  4. There HAS to be a skydiving scene between Mario and Sonic
