WRECK-IT RALPH POISED TO WRECK ALL BOX OFFICE RECORDS!!!

I’m gonna wreck itI am real excited about Wreck-It Ralph, an upcoming Disney movie about video game characters, or as I like to think of it, Tron With Jokes. It's written by former Simpsons director Jim Reardon (he appears in The Simpsons nearly every time there's a scene at a train station) and directed by former Simpsons director Rich Moore (he's the first guy on The Escalator to Nowhere). It's good to see Simpsons alums doing well!

TAG Blog says the animators working on Ralph are "psyched" about it, because as one guy points out, "[t]he company lawyers could have just had us do parodies of other characters, but they went and got the rights to use actual personalities from other video games." Bowser! Robotnik! All the Street Fighter guys! Clyde the ghost from Pac-Man! Q*bert! Some other guys I don't recognize! You can see 'em in this trailer Disney released today...

Fun fact: Jim Reardon made the ultra-violent Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown with some assistance from CalArts classmate Rich Moore. Now they make Disney movies together. What a world!
