Disney appears to be firing on all cylinders these days, don’t they? Even though their newest Pixar film has yet to grace theaters, they’ve already got another animated movie set to release later this year. What’s that you say? If Pixar isn’t developing this one, why care? You should care because this new animated film is called Wreck-It Ralph, and it dives into the psychology of your typical villain in classic video game form. Although, our featured villain wants to be a good guy.
Wreck-It Ralph has a very promising cast to voice many of the key characters in this film including: John C. Reilly, some may know him from Step Brothers; Jack McBrayer from 30Rock; Jane Lynch, from the hit show Glee; and Sarah Silverman ends the list of announced voices. The voice talent for this movie alone seems promising enough. All of these actors have very animated personalities, so it’s very easy to imagine them in cartoon form.
Okay, great, we have a cool concept of villains striving to be more than the bad guy and an excellent voice cast. What could make this even better? How about a great list of cameos from some of the most beloved characters from our favorite video game franchises?

Yes, Wreck-It Ralph will contain cameo appearances from some of our most favorite baddies in gaming history like Bowser, Dr. Eggman, Kano, Chun-Li, and your favorite orange, Pac-Man-eating ghost, Clyde.
The Disney Animation Studios film looks amazing and with classic bad guys showing off their bad-selves, who wouldn’t love the already? Rich Moore, who’s done wonderful work for the Simpsons and Futurama, will be directing this feature film, so watch out for the trailers in theaters, and especially, look out for the movie, itself, hitting theaters in North America on November 2.
