A new trailer for Disney’s gamer-centric animated film Wreck-It Ralph has been released. The story centers on the eponymous bad guy (John C. Reilly) from the arcade game “Fix-It Felix Jr.” who decides he wants to be the hero, and escapes to other video game worlds. There are some great jokes in this trailer (mostly involving Jack McBrayer’s Fix-It Felix), but also a few that land flat (poop jokes, really?). The soundtrack is also a bit schizophrenic, but we get a look at quite a few new scenes that look really great. Ralph’s world-jumping allows for a varied palette of colors and character structures, and I’m really looking forward to seeing them up on the big screen.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and be sure to check out Steve’s very geek-friendly interview with director Rich Moore as well as our coverage from the film’s preview day. Wreck-It Ralph also features the voices of Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch and opens on November 2nd. [Update: We’ve added a new poster after the jump.]

Here’s the synopsis for Wreck-It Ralph:
From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
