Wreck-It Ralph Deleted Scene Shows Unused Game World

Wreck-It Ralph Storyboard

By now it’s known that Disney had considered featuring additional game worlds in Wreck-It Ralph, but cut them for various reasons. The world farthest along in the planning stages was Extreme Easy Living 2, an open-world game (Grand Theft Auto) with a Sims vibe and lots of modern social gaming aspects (think Facebook-like interactions). It was cut both for pacing and logistical reasons — Ralph ended up on the arcade owner’s computer, since this sort of game is not something that would be found in an arcade — but it was storyboarded. Check out this clip showing what might have been had it made it into the finished film.

Of note is an earlier concept of Ralph as some sort of furry gorilla-man hybrid, closer in concept to his inspiration Donkey Kong. I think it was good that he was redesigned, as this version looks a bit too close to Sully from Monsters, Inc. It’s also for the best that this scene was cut, but it still would have been interesting to see more game worlds. Maybe if they ever make a sequel, we’ll get some new worlds?
