Some of us are born to be bad, but that doesnât mean we have to like it. Walt Disney Animation Studios and EmmyÂŽ-winning director Rich Moore (TVâs âThe Simpsons,â âFuturamaâ) take moviegoers on a hilarious, video-game-hopping journey in âWreck-It Ralph,â the story of an arcade game Bad Guy determined to prove he can be a Good Guy. Produced by Clark Spencer (âLilo & Stitch,â âBoltâ) and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer (â30 Rockâ) and Jane Lynch (âGleeâ), the CG comedy adventure will hit theaters on Nov. 2, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3Dâ˘ in select theaters.
Says Moore, âI love the idea of a very simple 8-bit video game character struggling with the complex question: âisnât there more to life than the role Iâve been assigned?â In his quest for the answer, we journey with our hero through three visually distinct video game worlds. Itâs unlike anything anyoneâs seen before, and Iâm thrilled to be to creating it here at Walt Disney Animation Studios.â
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his gameâs perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroesâŚ 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 planâwin a medalâbut soon wrecks everything, and accidently unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralphâs only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking âglitchâ 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 itâs âGame Overâ for the entire arcade?

So, it is this project's third name, as it was first called Joe Jump, then Reboot Ralph and now Wreck-it Ralph. It kinda reminds me of Megamind's plot, in the sense that the bad guy has to save the day. But the concepts sounds cool, as he's an 8-bit character. I'm curious to see how it goes.
