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. Read more…

Wreck-It Ralph Will Arrive Digitally Weeks Before Blu-ray

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 5, 2013 in Cinema, Videogames


Who knows if this is just Disney getting with the times, or perhaps a carefully planned marketing move, but either way it looks like a win for consumers: Wreck-It Ralph will be available digitally on February 12th, weeks before it arrives on DVD and Blu-ray March 5th. This is following the recent trend of releasing films earlier on digital distribution services, and it seems to be working out. Wreck-It Ralph will be Disney’s first film they’re doing this with, and it couldn’t suit its market better. I think many of the fans of the movie would rather have it digitally! Hopefully this will continue into the future. Read more…

Fake Vintage Fix-It Felix Game Ad is Delightfully 80s

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 11, 2012 in Cinema, Videogames


You have to hand it to Disney, their marketing for Wreck-It Ralph, the upcoming CGI film set in the world of video games, is really fantastic. They’ve been running with the idea that Fix-It Felix has been a real game, from making an actual arcade game you can play, to an authentic-feeling “vintage” ad for the local Litwak Arcade. They did such a good job it makes me wonder if they actually transferred the video to a VHS tape at any point. Anyway, I hope this bodes well for Wreck-It Ralph, as it sure does seem like the creators have an honest love for old-school games. Read more…

New Wreck-It Ralph Trailer Brings More Gaming Cameos

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 14, 2012 in Cinema, Videogames


A new trailer for Wreck-It Ralph! I know you all loved the cameos in the last trailer, so I had to mention the latest one, which includes Sonic and Dig Dug! Granted, we’re starting to see more of the “kid movie” trappings of the film, with a few poor jokes and the presence of the annoying “little kid” character, but I’ll do my best to keep my judgement until I get a chance to see it. Wreck-It Ralph will be hopping into theaters November 2nd. Watch the trailer after the break! Read more…



Wreck-It Ralph to Be Disney’s First CGI Animated Video Game Film

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 8, 2012 in Animation, Videogames

Disney has certainly experimented with the world of video games in its films before, but their upcoming Wreck-It Ralph looks to be a nostalgic romp through classic games (or their knock-off equivalents). Ralph is a riff on Donkey Kong, and his “Mario,” Fix-It Felix, has left him feeling unappreciated and stuck in the repetition of the game. So, he leaves and begins hopping from game world to game world, hoping to find a new place to fit in. The trailer unveils a truly amazing scene, though: Bowser, Dr. Robotnik, Bison, and Zangief along with other popular game “bad guys” sitting in a “bad guys anonymous” meeting. Trust me, if that doesn’t get you excited, just to see those characters interact for one scene, then I don’t know what to tell you. Wreck-It Ralph arrives in theatres November 2nd.
