Disney animation



From Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Wreck-It Ralph” takes viewers on a hilarious journey.  For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman).    The film is directed by Emmy®-winner Rich Moore.  Featuring an all-star voice cast including Jack McBrayer as the voice of Fix It Felix, Jr. and Jane Lynch as the voice of Sgt. Calhoun, plus breakthrough bonus features that take viewers even deeper into the world of video games, Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” has something for every player. Over an hour of all-new bonus material is featured on the Digital and Blu-ray Combo Pack, including deleted and alternate scenes, the theatrical short “Paperman,” plus much more.    

Bonus Features Include:
·         Bit by Bit: Creating the Worlds of “Wreck-It Ralph” – Fans of the film will get a look at five new worlds created for “Wreck-It Ralph.” The short takes viewers into Game Central Station with the artists who brought Sugar Rush, Hero’s Duty and Fix It Felix Jr. to life.
·         Alternate & Deleted Scenes – Four separate scenes are highlighted with an introduction and optional audio commentary from director Rich Moore.
·         Video Game Commercials Viewers can check out the commercials created for the video games featured in the film - Fix It Felix Jr., Sugar Rush, Hero’s Duty and Fix It Felix Hammer.
·         “Paperman” – This animated short film played in theaters before “Wreck It Ralph.” It tells the story of a young man in an office who sees the girl of his dreams in a skyscraper window across the street. But how can he get her attention?


I have eagerly been anticipating the release of Wreck-it Ralph on Blu-ray and DVD Tues. March 5th My family missed it while it was out in theaters and my video game loving son was sorely disappointed.  But it was well worth the wait!

Wreck-it Ralph is hilarious and heart-warming.  My son and I laughed throughout the movie.  I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there are some pretty humorous scenes like this one where Ralph attends a Bad-Anon meeting to talk about his feelings:



I expected the funny gaming references and "retro" video game characters that we'd seen in the previews.  But I didn't expect the heart-warming part.    The unique friendship between Ralph and the little girl Vanellope was a sweet surprise. 

There are some great themes in the film too:  loyalty, friendship, dealing with bullies, learning to be yourself, and bravery.



Kids may not recognize some of the throw-back characters like Q-Bert;  I had to explain a few to my son.  But they will definitely relate to the gaming experience.  And moms and dads will enjoy the nostalgia.  There's really something for everyone in this film.  I imagine this is one we'll be watching over and over again!

The special features reveal some insights into how the world of Wreck-it Ralph was created,  an inside look at the video game references, fun commercials created for the video games featured in the film and the theatrical short "Paperman".
