Children of the Nintendo generation, take heed: Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph was made just for you. In addition to setting up a rather compelling hero’s journey for video game character Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C.

Who will weep for Bowser as he gives his testimony at AA for baddies!?
This really looks like a lot of fun actually. I’m getting a little tired of the major studios going down nostalgia lane, but I’ll cut them some slack on this one. Here’s the new trailer.
