As of today, Wreck-It Ralph is available for purchase via a Blu-ray Combo pack. My family has been waiting with anticipation for the release of this hilarious and fun animated movie. My eldest sons and husband had the opportunity to see the film in the theaters, while I had the privileged of watching the movie via a special Disney pre-release disc.
If you haven’t seen the film you are going to want to pick this one up, as the characters are lovable and hilarious, the story is witty and touching, and the images are colorful and amazing. You’ve been missing out! Disney clearly knows how to create top notch animated stories and Wreck-It Ralph is one of the best. People who play video games will especially love the creative story line of the film, with Ralph wanting to join another game in order to become a hero. But even non-gamers will enjoy the touching relationships that exists between Ralph and Vanellope.
When you are watching Wreck-It Ralph it is best to sit back and enjoy the show!
Since we have already seen the movie, we were especially excited for this DVD release to view the Bonus Materials.
When you’ve already seen the movie, of course you are excited to see it again, but what is the most exciting is all the new bonus material. Obviously, some DVD’s are better than others. Wreck-It Ralph is certainly one of the better bonus material packs.
Bonus material includes-
- Paperman Theatrical Short—A young man in an office sees the girl of his dreams in a skyscraper window across the street. But how can he get her attention?
- Bit By Bit: Creating The Worlds OfWreck-It Ralph—Game jump through the worlds of the film with the film makers, artists and animators who created it.
- Disney Intermission: The Gamer’s Guide To Wreck-It Ralph—Hosted by Chris Hardwick.
- Deleted & Alternate Scenes
- Video Game Commercials—Original commercials for Fix-It Felix, Jr., Hero’s Duty and Sugar Rush.
My personal favorite was the Bit by Bit extra. Once again I was taken back to the Disney Animation Studios to see how the movie came together. I kept shouting, “I’ve been there!” or “I meet him!”. My husband actually said, “honey, we know you’ve been there”. Hmmm…clearly he doesn’t quite share my level of enthusiasm. I think he’s just jealous;)
Disney has taken great strides to provide families with the form of the movie they prefer. For instance, the Combo Pack I recently received comes with 4 different discs.
1- Blu-ray disc
1- Digital copy
1- Blu-ray 3D disc
There won’t be any need to purchase another form later. This pack has literally every digital form I need. Being a family of multiple tech devices, this type of Combo Pack is our best purchase.
For those of us who live in the northern region of the U.S., clearly winter is still here. I recommend purchasing a copy of Wreck-It Ralph and getting cozy this weekend while that cold wind blows:)
From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time?
