Walt Disney Animation Studios announced this week that the 3D animated CG film Reboot Ralph has been renamed Wreck-it Ralph and is now slated for release on November 2, 2012. The film was originally set for release in 2013 but production of the film has been bumped up.
The film follows Ralph, an 8-bit arcade game bad guy, who longs for the same adoration of the hero in his game and sets out on a video-game hopping journey to prove that bad guys can be good. The film is directed by Rich Moore (“The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) and features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch.
Quoted in a press release Moore said, “I love the idea of a very simple 8-bit video game character struggling with the complex question: ‘isn’t there more to life than the role I’ve been assigned?’ In his quest for the answer, we journey with our hero through three visually distinct video game worlds. It’s unlike anything anyone’s seen before, and I’m thrilled to be to creating it here at Walt Disney Animation Studios.”
Disney has yet to release a movie trailer or posters for the film.
