Classic Nintendo Video Game Characters to Cameo in ‘Wreck-It Ralph’
Video game fans, be excited. Disney just gave you another reason to go ahead and watch their upcoming animated film ‘Wreck-It Ralph‘ when it’s released in theaters, and that’s its cameos. They aren’t just regular cameos, like some celebrity voicing a random character, but seeing some of your favorite video game characters in a movie (that isn’t ‘Super Mario Bros’).
You can’t just go ahead and make a video game-related movie without at least mentioning some of the most popular video games out there. So it’s no surprise that they’re not only being mentioned, but we’re going to be able to see them throughout the movie.
There’s one scene in the beginning that’s been mentioned before, shown previously at D23, in which Ralph participates in a group therapy session. /Film reports that other video game characters that take part in the session include Bowser from Super Mario Bros, Doctor Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog, Zangief from Street Fighter, Kano from Mortal Kombat, a ghost from Pac-Man and Coily the Snake from Q*bert. Not bad, eh?
For those of you who may not know, ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ centers on a lovable but misunderstood character named Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) who plays the villain in the 8-bit arcade game Fix-It Felix. Tired of being pegged as a villain all of these years, Ralph decides to venture off into other video games in order to prove his worth as a good guy. The voice actor cast include Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman.
