One of the films that seemed to impress everyone at this weekend’s D23 (Disney’s Comic-Con) was Wreck-it Ralph. The upcoming animated Disney film is about a 8-bit arcade villain named Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) who grows sick of constantly being viewed as the bad guy. Desperate to prove his worth as a hero, Ralph decides to leave his 8-bit world and journey into other arcade games. I’ve heard from everyone that the footage looked great and I think the concept sounds cool. Here’s Tommy’s recap of the panel.
After the presentation, I got to speak with director Rich Moore, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer (they voice two of the characters). Since the movie takes place in the video game world and since Disney also owns Tron, I asked Moore if Tron would make an appearance. He told me:
“We might see a walk on by Mr. Tron himself…the great Bruce Boxleitner. We’re talking with him.”
Hit the jump for more.
During the interview, Moore also talked about what the film is about and is it more Atari or Nintendo NES graphics. In addition, Silverman and McBrayer talked about their characters and the recording process. As someone who grew up playing 8 bit video games, I have to say, Wreck-It Ralph sounds like it could be very cool. Wreck-It Ralph gets released Nov. 12, 2012.
