I just got extremely excited about seeing the image from the movie Wreck-It Ralph. The premise is pretty cool because its about an 80's video game villain who's sick of being a bad guy and want to be a hero for once. However, the picture above has the main character, Ralph, goes to a video game villain support group and as you can tell in the pic, Bowser, Dr. Robotnik, Dr. Wily, and Zangief (though don't think he's a villain) are in this group.

Other characters confirmed for the movie include a Pac Man ghost (don't know which one), Big Daddy, and Kano! I won't spoil anything else, but I'll say this, Disney actually doesn't tone down characters like Kano AT ALL!

@MocBucket62: They can't not turn down Kano, he can't just go out rip heads off.

What is Ralph wrecking? Vaginas?

So it's going to be like the video game version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I am sold on this concept, as long as the original creators have some type of creative input in how their villains are portrayed. But that's a minor point, so I'm sold, I guess.

I'm certainly optimistic. I can barely count one time I've been severely disappointed in a Disney movie, so hopefully Wreck it Ralph keeps their streak.

@ShadowConqueror: Absolutely. You see, in the game he's in, he's out to wreck as many vaginas as possible before Fix-It Felix comes in to stop his sexual deviant plans. Classic Disney Plot!

This looks like a beautiful movie and I hope it's good. Also, holy shit there were a lot of cameo villains in that villain support group scene. Bowser, Robotnik, Zangief, Pac Man ghost, Kano, M. Bison, and the robot with a buzzsaw looks really familiar.

So does that make Zangieff and Bowser Disney characters as well? I want to my Bowser themed Mickey Ears!

@TheFreeMan: Not to mention they got some VG heroes for cameos too like Q'Bert and Chun Li.

That may very well be even better than The FP. Qbertese? Hell yeah! Really surprising that they have so many known faces in there. could be really, really awesome and just shows how far games have come. They are now deeply integrated into our culture, no matter what some politicians say.

Edit: Gotta love one YouTube comment I saw on this: "More games than at E3 in this..."

Totally geeking out for this movie.

That image in the first post-- is that a leaked photo from Disney or something? It looks like placeholder stuff compared to the real trailer, and there's no Dr. Wily anymore.

I'm definitely seeing this.

Disney seems like it's been a friend of gaming for many years now, so it's a natural fit.

It looks great! I'm hoping more characters will be around. The TF2 crew fit perfectly for the art style.

Was honestly more excited before I saw the trailer. The references might be spot-on, but the movie looks forgettable.

Would probably rather just watch Indie Game again.

I wonder how they'll keep their rating without toning down Kano...

Prediction: Kano flips out at villain support meeting, zealously plunges arm through Pac-Man Ghost, to no effect. He retracts and looks quizzically at his empty hand, confused at the absence of a still-beating heart. Receives brief nonplussed stare from rest of the group before meeting continues as if nothing had happened.

I don't know... maybe? I'll probably see it, I was grinning throughout the trailer, so that's probably a good sign.

Wreck-it Ralph is the closest the world has ever gotten to Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter. Kano and M. Bison in the same goddamned room.

Also, since when is Zhangief a bad guy?

If this is a Disney thing then they should have something KH related in there. Maybe just a Sora cameo.

That trailer made me smile. I hope this is good. I'll probably see it no matter what. You know video games have become an accepted part of our culture when Disney makes a movie about them.

Between Kano, the not-quite-Castlevania 1 music at the 32 second mark, the seemingly Donkey Kong/Rampage mash-up the game is based on, and the Q*Bert conversation...I'll see this.
