First Look: The Video Game Worlds of ‘Wreck-It Ralph’

In Wreck-It Ralph, a villain (voiced by John C. Reilly) whose job is to bust up 8-bit buildings finds himself longing for more. It’s just like that time Donkey Kong started writing poetry and listening to The Cure. What did you think that funky Kill Screen was all about? Exactly.

It’s a cool concept from Disney trading on nostalgia that includes multiple worlds (theoretically for Ralph to adventure through). There’s the racing game “Sugar Rush” and the space fighting game “Hero’s Duty,” and Disney has delivered the first look with three pictures (via CineHeroes).

They’re all beautiful, but that’s par for the course at Disney. Check them out for yourself:

This movie just keeps sounding cooler and cooler. Especially since Katy Perry probably lives on Sugar Rush Island (or in its clouds).

Even better, this is the feature directorial debut of Rich Moore, who has directed a ton of Simpsons and Futurama episodes. The only question is what kind of tone this flick will go for. Sarcastic and hip? Family-friendly with a little bit of adult humor?

And when will the inevitable video game tie-in be available? The people demand to destroy buildings while talking like John C. Reilly.

Do you want to see it?
