While fall festival season usually means a bucketload of Oscar hopefuls and heavy dramas, we’ve also got some time for fun — and Disney’s upcoming animation looks to deliver quite a lot of it. Today we’ve got a brand-new theatrical trailer for Wreck-It Ralph, directed by Futurama‘s Rich Moore.
This one follows Donkey Kong-esque bad guy who switches sides, brought to life by the voice talent of John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman. The trailer, while filled with kid-friendly jokes, looks to pack some exciting action and fun mechanics for any lover of videogames. Including bit parts of characters found in Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter, Sonic, Pac-Man, Mortal Kombat and more, check out the new look below.
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidently unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
Wreck-It Ralph arrives on November 2nd, 2012.
