Hi! Today i'm going to tell you some fun facts about the movie Wreck-It Ralph. Well, lets get started!!!!!! :D Did you know?
disney first began developing an animated film about the world of video game characters in the 1980s. At that time the project was called “High Score” and in the 1990s was titled “Joe Jump.” In the 2000s, when the movie was finally pushed forward, the first two months of story development focused on Fix-It Felix Jr. as the main character.
Early in production it was considered to keep all characters in their native graphic quality, essentially making Ralph look 8-bit the entire time. This was deemed too difficult for making Ralph a sympathetic, lovable character.
Unlike most animated films, the principal actors regularly recorded audio sessions together in the same room, a situation which led to a lot of improvising.
The character Ralph and his game “Fix-it Felix Jr.” draw inspiration from Donkey Kong. Both games are about a handy-man character climbing up and around a building structure toward the villain on top. Both villains, Donkey Kong and Ralph, are large angry characters with wide hands that toss down objects at the hero.
In early production, Dr. Wily, the villain of the Mega Man game series, was included in the storyboard process in the “villain support group” scene, but was ultimately written out due to pacing reasons.
During early production, disney had Mario set to cameo in the film, but producer Clark Spencer claimed that they “couldn’t think of the right way to incorporate him into the film”.
Fix-It Felix is depicted as a carpenter in reference to the original Donkey Kong where Mario was also depicted as a carpenter before he was later changed to a plumber.
Several popular video game characters make an appearances in this movie, including but not limited to: M. Bison, Zangief, Ken, Ryu, Chun Li and Cammy from the rua Fighter Series; Q-Bert and his cast of enemies; Pac-Man and the laranja ghost, Clyde; Bowser, from the Super Mario series; and Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman.
King Candy’s seguro is secured with a nintendo Entertainment System controller. The password he enters (UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, START) is a common cheat code used por game developer Konami in most of their titles, most famously in the game Contra.
King Candy’s voice and character design is modeled after Ed Wynn a popular comedian and voice artist, best known as the voice of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland and Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins.
Sonic the Hedgehog appears in the movie when Ralph is first walking through in Game Central Station as an announcer on the screen monitors warning video game characters not to die outside their own game. Sonic is also at the party celebrating Fix-it Felix’s 30th anniversary and is seen briefly getting hit por Ralph’s escape pod as it barrels uncontrollably through Game Central Station.
The ‘glitch’ shown in the disney logo at the end (see Crazy Credits) is intended to look like the infamous “Pac-Man Bomb Screen”, a bug that manifests itself when reaching the 256th level in the original Pac-Man arcade game.
Several green mints in Sugar Rush form two hidden Mickeys.
The film has cameo appearances from the video game rua Fighter, a video game published por Capcom. In the late 1980′s and early 1990′s, Capcom published video games of several disney TV shows and filmes such as DuckTales and Aladdin.
There is a piece of graffiti on the right side of the tunnel which reads “Jenkins”, a nod to Leeroy Jenkins, a World of Warcraft player who obtained Internet fame from a video of him running head-long into battle while shouting his own name.
The graffiti in Game Central Station contains many inside jokes and references to famous video games. One says “Aerith Lives,” in reference to Final fantasia VII. Another says “All your base are belong to us,” from the infamously poor English translation of the the game Zero Wing.
After the credits finish rolling there is a final shot of the disney título card. It then “glitches” and you’re able to see the 8-bit versions of Ralph, Calhoun, and others walking around.
There are mais than 188 characters in the movie.
Jane Lynch shared that during the premiere screening she said about her character, “I look so good.” She then added, “Obviously they replicated my own figure.”
During production, the animators and director would watch dailies 3-5 hours per dia and animators are expected to turn in about 80 frames per week. I hope you enjoyed the article!
