Wreck It Ralph, a great movie for the whole family! In theaters today!

My husband loves Disney, so much so he has the D with Mickey head logo tattooed on the back of his calf. But when asked who his favorite character is he always has a hard time answering. He loves all the characters but he never had that one that is until now. We had the pleasure of seeing Wreck it Ralph and my husband has found his favorite Disney character, he loved the character of Ralph and his freakishly large hands. He’s a gamer has been since birth practically and he’s raising our daughter to be a gamer so a Disney movie about video games was right up their alley, it’s a movie they can identify with. 

Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) hates his role in the game world of Fix it Felix Jr., he’s the bad guy, he’s the one the people of Niceland fear because well he’s “gonna wreck it!” Ralph longs to be accepted by the Nicelanders, like the way they treat Fix it Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer) the games hero, he’s beloved, well respected, gets cake and parties and lives in the apartment building while Ralph lives in the trash.

I’m going to do this spoiler free because if you love Disney animation and video games you need to see this film. The voice talent is off the charts with Jane Lynch, Ed O’Neill, Sarah Silverman, Dennis Haysbert, Adam Corolla etc. The video game characters are plentiful you’ll see Qbert, Ryu and Ken, Bison and Zangief of Street Fighter fame. Sonic the Hedgehog makes an appearance as does Pacman and Bowser from Mario Brother’s fame. I wish we would have gotten to see a Mario cameo but… All in all this was another great movie from start to finish. 

We get to see Ralph try and become a hero to finally be accepted and the movie is basically his struggles with being “bad” but wanting to be good. I’d love to go into more detail but I don’t want to ruin anything. 

We all loved it and my daughter especially loved it because of the character of Vanellope von Schweetz being an almost 8 year old she really liked the fact that Vanellope is of similar age and lives in a game world that is an awful lot like Mario Kart! Disney is and will always be an animation studio and they really knocked this one out of the park. 

WRECK-IT RALPH smashes into theaters everywhere on November 2nd!!

We love 3D animation films! Wreck It Ralph is definitely on the To Watch list. The commercials are fun, especially the cute kid.
