WRECK IT RALPH Builds Some New Nostalgia
This new chapter in Ralph’s, and his game’s, life is not easy to attain. Along the way, Ralph meets Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun, a wonderful female, first-person-shooter character voiced by Jane Lynch. Calhoun’s mission is to destroy the CY-BUGS that Ralph has mistakenly let loose upon the world of SUGAR RUSH. The SUGAR RUSH arcade cabinet, a sweet racing game, is where Ralph meets Vanellope von Schweetz. Vanellope is simply a doll, cutely played by Sarah Silverman, who helps Ralph embrace the hero inside him and not rely on a medal for its representation.
This is just the icing on a fun layered cake; there are so many other goodies sprinkled here to enjoy. So go and be wrecked by Ralph. Take pleasure in the cameos this film has to offer — from PAC-MAN and his Ghost enemies, to Bowser from SUPER MARIO, along with Doctor Eggman of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG fame. My favorites were the Q*BERT Characters who get cameos and a small storyline to boot.
I may not be able to go back to that arcade and dump ten dollars worth of quarters into a further attempt to defeat DRAGON’S LAIR, but we all can get lost in the delightful world of WRECK IT RALPH. Watch the trailer here.
