Wreck-It RalphA bad guy with a heart of gold? That’s the subject of Disney’s family movie Wreck-It Ralph.

A contender for best animated film of the year, Wreck-It Ralph features the voice of John C. Reilly (Carnage) as the titular Ralph, the bad guy in his own popular videogame. But Ralph knows he’s much more and sets out on an adventure to prove that he’s really a hero with a heart of gold. Along the way, he teams up with some unlikely new friends, including misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman, Peep World).

Jack McBrayer (The Campaign) voices Fix It Felix Jr., Jane Lynch (Rio) is the voice of Sgt. Calhoun and Mindy Kaling (No Strings Attached) voices Taffyta Muttonfudge. The movie is the first feature film directed by Rich Moore (TV’s The Simpsons), who also co-wrote the script.

Critics loved Wreck-It Ralph, helping the film gross a tidy $177 million when it was in theaters. Los Angeles Times‘ Betsy Sharkey wrote, “The movie’s subversive sensibility and old-school/new-school feel are a total kick.”
