Disney’s Video Game Themed Movie Features Call of Duty Nod – First Images

THE BUZZ: Disney has released the first images of its new animated film Wreck-It Ralph, which stars a video game villain fed up with his job.

The plot follows Ralph, a video game villain, who gets tired of destroying buildings and cities in his 8-bit arcade game only for Fix-it Felix to fix everything and steal the glory. One day Ralph spots a new arcade first-person shooter known as “Hero’s Duty” (see what they did there?) and decides to leave his game to become a hero in this new one.

However, things don’t go according to plan and Ralph is forced to team up with a character from a kart game known as “Sugar Rush” in order to save the arcade before it is shut down for good. The film is due to release December 26.

EGM’s TAKE: This film actually sounds pretty good on paper, we can’t wait to take a peak at the first trailer when it’s released. Although this does mean one thing, it’s movie tie-in time! And what movie lends itself better than one inspired by video games. We’re not expecting a AAA title or anything but something with a little more substance would be nice, since it’s actually a movie about video games. Keep an eye on this one.

What do you think of the film? Leave a comment below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
