Wreck-It Ralph

Release Date: Friday, November 2, 2012

Rating: Rated PG

Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "Step Brothers") is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, "30 Rock"), the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing andseeing 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 (voice of Jane Lynch, TV's "Glee") from the first-person action game Hero's Duty. But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, "The Sarah Silverman Program") 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? "Wreck-It Ralph" crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D(TM) in select theaters.

Simple, smartly written and very touching, Wreck-It Ralph is fantastic family fun that is truly designed to be enjoyed by all ages. In an time when movies -- particularly animated ones -- are predestined to churn out sequels this movie proves some are still ready and willing to earn them. Being that this is also only the second CG animated feature from Disney's in house (non-Pixar) film team, it shows the magical charm of Tangled can be repeated with the right people involved.

Paperman, the short film preceeding the feature, is infused with classic cartoon style and story. It finds the perfect balance between the slapstick silliness of Pixar's Presto and heartfelt nuance of Day & Night, and has become my new favorite animated short to come from the House of Mouse.
