Disney’s Wreck It Ralph! Crosses Over Gaming Pop Culture Icons Such As Street Fighter, Sonic & Mario In An Animated Movie That Screams ‘I Am Awesome’

leave a comment »

Wreck It Ralph! tells the story of ‘Ralph’ an 8-bit arcade videogame bad-guy sick of his predicament of being owned and beaten day in and day out.  So when when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun, Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness.  Naturally things don’t go quite right as you can imagine and everything goes down the pan pretty quickly.  One of the best things about this movie is that it is packed to the brim with references to some of gaming’s most enduring pop-culture villains such as the ghosts from PacMan, Zangief from Street Fighter, Kano from Mortal Kombat and Bowser from Mario.

Let that sink in for a second.

Disney are making an animated movie with Bowser in it.

It can’t fucking fail and looks utterly, utterly brilliant.

Have a look at the trailer and see if you agree and if you don’t, well, you’re beyond help really:

Disney’s Wreck It Ralph is due to be released in the cinemas this November in both 2D and 3D formats
