Yesterday, we showed you some new images from Disney’s animated film Wreck-It Ralph, and now the first trailer has gone online. John C. Reilly voices the eponymous character, who has been forced to play the villain in a Donkey Kong-like arcade game for the past thirty years, but now wants to be the good guy. He decides to abandon his game, and goes searching for a new world where he can play the hero, but this ends up throwing the arcade world into upheaval. There are nice touches of Toy Story in here (what gaming characters do when we’re not watching), and I love all the cameos and gaming jokes (The “Q-bertese” bit had me cracking up), but the non-gaming stuff doesn’t quite click as well as everything else. Hopefully, it will all come together in the finished feature.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also features the voices of Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, and Jane Lynch. Wreck-It Ralph opens in 3D on November 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Wreck-It Ralph:
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… 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 plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidently unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” 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 it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
