There are very few things Pixar could do that would get me more excited to see one of their films. Between the overall popularity of Toy Story, Up, The Incredibles and many more besides, there is very little the animation studio can do that would be considered a bad move (Owen Wilson vehicles not included).
With that said, it’s hard to believe they’ve found a way to speak to their audience even more with their upcoming video-game parody film, 'Wreck-It Ralph', but it looks like they just might. Here’s the official synopsis of the film. Consider it Donkey Kong from the gorilla’s perspective:
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game's perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes ... so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade.
Ralph's only hope is Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it's "Game Over" for the entire arcade?
And if the concept of several video and board games being parodied in a Pixar film isn’t enough to guarantee you handing over your hard-earned cash, I don't know what is.
