Posted by degdeg18 on January 8, 2014 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Wreck-It Ralph is a 2012 CGI family-comedy produced by Disney. The film tells the story of the main villain of the fictional game Fix-It Felix Jr. who rebels against his role and dreams of becoming a hero. He travels between games in the arcade, and ultimately must eliminate a dire threat that could affect the entire arcade, and one that Ralph accidentally started himself. Being a homage to video games, the movie features cameos and dialogue of characters from numerous series, mostly of the Arcade variety. There's also a few shout-outs and references to console games as well. Almost every character who had a speaking role in the movie retained their game's original voice actor/actress.
