‘Wreck-It Ralph’ trailer: Sonic, Bowser and Q*bert make cameos

Posted in: Movies

A new theatrical trailer for “Wreck-It Ralph” reveals more of the film’s richly designed video game universe, as well as cameos from classic arcade characters, including Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario antagonist Bowser.

The Walt Disney film, due out Nov. 2, follows Ralph (John C. Reilly), the bad guy in a fictional 8-bit arcade game called “Fix-It Felix.” Tired of being the villain and being constantly overshadowed by good-guy hero Felix (voiced by “30 Rock’s” Jack McBrayer), Ralph begins a quest across the arcade to become the hero of his own story. But his decision to defy his programming wreaks havoc in the video game world.

Directed by Rich Moore (“Futurama” and “The Simpsons”), the animated movie also features the voice talents of Jane Lynch, who puts her trademark “Glee” sass to good work as Sergeant Calhoun in a shooter game called Hero’s Duty, and Sarah Silverman as candy-coated Vanellope von Schweetz, who is technically a glitch in a cart-racing game called Sugar Rush.

The trailer teases some humorous moments, including a meeting of “Bad-Anon” — a video game villains therapy group. During the meeting, Ralph gets some advice from Street Fighter’s hairy-chested Zangief, and Bowser, Dr. Robotnik, M. Bison and a Pac-Man ghost are in attendance. The evildoers join hands and voices for the Bad-Guy Affirmation:

“I am bad, and that’s good,” they chant. “I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”

The trailer also reveals cameos by a handful of classic video game characters, including Q*bert, Sonic the Hedgehog, Dig Dug and the bartender from Tapper.
