Wreck-It Ralph, a 3D computer-animated Disney movie due out Nov. 2, will feature cameos from the gaming world’s most-beloved bad guys.
Although the star-studded comedic film stars the 9-foot, 643-pound video game character Ralph, be on the lookout for villains from Super Mario Bros., Mortal Kombat, Sonic, Mega Man, Street Fighter and other classics.
Wreck-It Ralph will be Disney’s 52nd animated flick. It tells the story of an 8-bit miscreant who after decades of mischief-making wants to turn his life around and become a role model.
“He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero,” Disney says in the synopsis for the movie, which features voiceovers from John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer and Sarah Silverman.
Along the way, viewers will be treated to some flashback-inducing appearances from these badasses:
- Bowser, Super Mario Bros.
- Kano, Mortal Kombat
- Doctor Robotnik, Sonic the Hedgehog
- Doctor Wily, Mega Man
- Zangief and M. Bison, Street Fighter II
- Clyde, Pac-Man
- Coily, Q*bert
