Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced the name up of their upcoming CG-production to be based on the story of a video-game villain who journeys to become someone better. Wreck-It-Ralph is set to be directed by Rich Moore, a veteran animation director who has covered dozens of episodes including The Simpsons, Futurama and The Critic, and will feature the voice talents of John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman and Jamie Elman
In addition to the new details cast and crew details, the first official piece of promo art came along from Disney which can be seen below.
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?
Directed by Rich Moore, Wreck-It Ralph stars John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman and Jamie Elman and will arrive in theaters on November 12, 2012.
