Will Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph be a crossover success, appealing to both old-school video game nerds and today’s hyper-stimulated kids? We won’t know for sure until the movie’s release — but judging from this first clip, Ralph looks pretty darn charming.
The film follows the titular character (John C. Reilly), the villain of a retro Donkey Kong-esque game, as he embarks on a game-hopping quest to prove that he can be a hero. In the all-candy world of Sugar Rush, he meets pint-sized Vanellope von Schweetz — a go-kart racer with the mischievous, pinched voice of Sarah Silverman. Ralph and Vanellope’s sweet/tart meet-cute is the subject of the video below:
Ralph also features the voices of Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Adam Carolla, Ed O’Neill, and Mindy Kaling. It hits theaters Nov. 2.
