Disney's Wreck-It Ralph film brings retro video game villains to life (video)
Disney’s latest animated adventure film, Wreck-It Ralph, sees some of our favourite video game bad guys make cameos, including characters from Streetfighter II, Sonic and Mario.
Due in cinemas in time for Christmas, the film sees Ralph, a villain from the (fictional) arcade game Wreck-It Ralph, decide that he no longer wants to be the bad guy, but instead focus his abilities on doing good.
This results in Ralph abandoning the arcade game he has been integral to for the past 30 years and heading to “Game Central Station” for pastures new.
That’s not before we see him attending a “Bad-Anon” meeting – mantra: One Game At A Time – where Zangief and M. Bison from Streetfighter II fame, Bowser from Super Mario Bros, and Doctor Eggman, Sonic’s nemesis, are also in attendance.
Wreck-It Ralph will be hitting cinemas in 3D this November and will feature the voices of John C. Reilly, Saturday Night Live’s Sarah Silverman and 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer.
