Wreck-It Ralph trailer loads up perfectly

WreckItRalph.jpgI hadn't really paid much attention to Wreck-It Ralph until this trailer and instantly the idea won me over, more than that it started to make me laugh out loud, even if it is Disney which means the morality tale hits you like a hammer wrapped in concrete, surprisingly even during the trailer.

The film features the voice talents of John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, Dennis Haysbert, Alan Tudyk and Ed O'Neill, to name but a few, and has a superb premise that works brilliantly on screen, and the trailer does look great fun.

Wreck-It Ralph has a cracking idea, the bad guy character of a videogame gets bored playing the bad guy and starts game jumping, leaping into other videogames and experiencing life as a hero and before long, well the worlds inside the videogames suddenly discover they need a new hero and here he is.

Yeah, the morality tale does hit you hard during the trailer and with Disney behind the film it'll hit even harder while watching despite being as see-through as a handful of air but is that such a bad thing? Well not if the film is as entertaining as the trailer through Yahoo Movies and TrailerAddict looks.

Here's the official blurb first:

Ralph is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun from the first-person action game Hero's Duty. But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it's too late?

Oh I do wish that they had managed to get licenses for all the videogames and characters they are so obviously referencing but they've done a good job none the less.

For this we're waiting until February 2013 in the UK while the European roll-out begins in November along with the releases in the US and Canada and, well, pretty much everywhere else leading up to UK being last once again.
