About the Movie:
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, Wreck-It Ralph takes viewers on a hilarious journey. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman). The film is directed by Emmy®-winner Rich Moore.
Featuring an all-star voice cast including Jack McBrayer as the voice of Fix It Felix, Jr. and Jane Lynch as the voice of Sgt. Calhoun, plus breakthrough bonus features that take viewers even deeper into the world of video games, Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph has something for every player.

Since I already wrote a review of Wreck-It Ralph back in October after having seen it on the #DisneyMoviesEvent press trip, I wanted to have my 8 year old daughter, Bridget, do the review. She’s been anticipating it’s release for months now. She saw the voiceover I did as part of our press trip and thought that I was in the movie. It really got her excited to watch it.
She watched it three times in a matter of two days! It’s going to be one of those movies that she will enjoy over and over (and over!) again.
She’s a little shy so you may have to turn your volume up to hear her.
